Update ,

The motor is 99% done. Cam is in , Valve springs are in. Mounts are mounted to the motor. Still waiting on the starter motor relocator kit (Well over due.) The car should be dropped off at the work shop hopefully This weekend or early next week to get the big boy dropped in and manifold made.

Photo's will be posted once the cars at the workshop.

No it wont be at powercruise this year. I'm getting it all in , then prettying up the bay with chrome and speedflow fittings. The main thing is for me to get it in there, if its going or not , then do the final in the bay. I want it up and running all done right.

Been down today to the workshop today. we think it will fit with abit of panel work. The turbo will need a brace , due to it weighting in around 18 - 20kgs!

re-LS1

Quote:
but LS1 motors come with thier known faults too.

Many issues such as once they start to wear a little/get a few k's on the clock, they start burning/using ALOT of oil, plus a few others i dont have exact details about so i can't really explain them properly without sounding like a douche
The LS1 in my VY has done nearly 200,000 kms and doesn't use any oil.

Another Update ,

I'm back from holidays and the car is still sitting. I told them to old off while I was away. Now the manifolds are booked in to be made. They will be starting them 2-3 weeks from now due to work load.
