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

Odds and ends getting done. Was able to fit the digital dash in the stock cluster. Lots of wiring being ran and figured out. I have a lot of studying to do on the Holley stuff. Also got the trans cooler lines routed

Lots of miscellaneous stuff done. Only thing worth mentioning is the Holley retrofit fuel pump

Fuel pump and hat installed to support 750hp. Internally regulated, so I just have to run the -6 line up to the fuel rail. Very happy with it

That being said, the instructions were wrong. I got one or the first batches of these so that's ok. I'm going to call Holley and make sure they fix them

If you're bored, have a look:

Basically you measure the depth of your tank. Say it's 10". Then you subtract that number from their number in the chart to establish the length of the feed line and mounting bracket

The problem with that is as follows. Going off their 13" baseline number...

If you subtract your 10" then the hose should be 3" long. Ok. But what if your tank is deeper?

Say it's 11" deep. Subtract your 11 from their 13 and your hose would be 2" long. How could the hose and mounting bracket be shorter for a deeper tank??????

So I just had to do the measuring on my own and figure it out. Our tank is barely deep enough to run this big 450lph pump because of the depth needed. They say minimum is 7 1/2" and ours is 8" at the front there but that's really the minimum

Been reading this from start to finish like a thriller novel. Only when I got to the end of chapter 6 it stopped?

Ok, loving this build. Very inspired and dedicated to quality.

Keep it up and M0RE chapters please!
