    Starting LS1 after winter storage

    (I searched first and didn't find anything)

    Hey guys,

    I'm planning on pulling my Formula out from storage this week. It's been in since mid November (it was a warm fall). I did all of the normal stuff when putting it away (stabil in the tank, no battery, new oil, etc...).

    Is there anything I should do when preparing to start the engine for the first time? I'm concerned about how little oil will be in the system initally. Any tips?

    Thanks!

    I've never stored my car, I'd just make sure the battery is fully charged and fire it up - and expect a "grumpy" idle since the battery was removed and reset the PCM.
