Got the motor and trans dropped in. Have been doing a ton of little stuff as well. Not happy with the brake lines and prop valve. So will redo that. Pinned the crank for future plans. Installed the transgo HD-2 kit, corvette servo and aluminum accumulator pistons in the trans. Motor and trans fit great with the CBR stuff

Thanks guys

Didn't have a good plan of attack today so I just played with a few things to see what fits and what needs to be ordered. Need to change out the included multec injector connectors for the ev6 style. Have those connectors but the metal pin is different, so ordering them because I'd rather not add a solder joint. . Also need a 4 pin connector to replace the truck 6 pin connector for the throttle body. This whole ecu and harness setup wasn't available with those two things being different. Easy fix though

Made a new prop valve bracket and re-did the lines to clear the coils and fuel rail cover. Cut some spacers and mounted the throttle pedal. And tossed a header in there to see how it fit. Tons of clearance. Very happy with them. Not sure about the o2 bung placement. It's right at the end of a primary tube and the first part of the collector. Read that the Holley likes it further downstream. Need to read some more to confirm

Lots of pics because I like build threads with them when I'm researching

Mike

Does the coil pack clear the brake booster? I know for the Ls1 Coils I had to notch my coil bracket and move the rear coil forward about a 1/2 inch. So i was just wondering if it was the same for the Ls2.

Your build is coming along smoothly! It looks good!

yes, they clear. It's just the truck valve covers which are all the same anyways. have f body coil brackets with truck "heat sink" coils. plenty of room. can snap a pic tonight.

thanks
