    Dropping the tank or trap door?

    Also find out what injectors you're going with yet?

    Does anyone know where I can get another one of these. I showed the local parts ppl and I got a deer in the headlights look.

    I also cleaned up the k member some and look there's a rack & pinion......couldn't see it before under all the grim.

    Now I have a dilemma....The high pressure hose at the r&p was loose, I mean very loose. I know I checked in the past and it was tight. Now I'm wondering if this is the leak? If I leave it then I have the nightmare of trying to fix it with the block over it. What to do? :
    Flip the rack bolts around so you can drop them with the engine in
    Dealers should still be able to get that connector or gmpartsdirect

    Fuel pump in last weekend. Wire harness also, had to reroute it to the passenger side to be able to hook up to the new alternator location. Just have enough wire to make it.

    The replacement alternator wire harness & the fuel injectors came in last night. Smart Fire Injectors, 42lbs $280 for set of 8. Came with a data sheet and I know they've been tested, can smell the fuel still.




    Man there is a ton of little stuff to do when you do an engine swap.

    I'm going to do this and risk it's just the loose high pressure fitting. I'm going to check make sure it isn't stripped out first.

    It's off at the shop, now the waiting game begins. Somehow I lost my LS1 windage tray. Kinda pissed. Just ordered a new one.

    yeah it's the waiting that seems to make it drag on. It's worse now that the block is out of my hands.

    1st report back today from shop.

    His guys have found surface cracks on the stock LS2 rods where the bearings seat. He says it may hone out, may not. He's telling me that using these in my build with what I got going in in not a good idea. He's recommending a set of SCAT I beams. Opinions?

    Also said the block looks real good for having 150k on it. No honing needed. Even the crank and cam journals are straight, no line hone needed.
