    Soooo.... i was installing my intake

    i was instaling the ls6 intake i boutght and when i took off the old manifold i broke the oil pressure sensor thingy ... so i was able to finish the install. i dont know how i did it, i just looked after i took the manifold off and i saw the sensor lying on the block. Has this ever happened to any of you guys?

    from what i hear it happens to alot of people, just what ever u do, dont start the car, u gotta replace that sensor before you can run the motor

    i didnt even put the manifold back on the car because the sensor would be almost impossible to do if it was on.... i feel bad with my baby in pieces

    Unplug the brake booster line and you will usually avoid breaking the oil sensor.

    i herd that you dont have to change all the collant pipes. that all you have to do is take of the tape and clamps that hold the 2 lines together and youll be fine. is that true?

    You can use the stock coolant lines but you have to grind off some of the ribbing under the intake in the locations that the lines run. Do a search as I and many other people have posted pics and discussed everything necessary.

    ...that happend to me too. I made the mistake of putting the intake back on and about a week later i see drops of oil, looks like inside my bell housing...and im about to drop the trani, when i snook my hand to the back of the intake and knew it was coming from their.

    so good move on waiting and fixing it. With the socket from o'reillys made it a piece of cake, just be carfull going in.
