Oh no. Sorry to hear that. Otherwise, super excited to see it finished in the spring!

Well, the 5.3 is out and the 6.0 LS2 long block is in. The MEFI ECU went to the builder to be reprogrammed for the LS2 and was provided back with the long block. Still lots to do, but nothing in terms of “building”, mostly just assembling. When I installed the oil pan I used an Improved Racing oil pickup tube brace, so that’s different. I also rerouted the oil line to the remote filter housing which shortened it considerably and took out a bend. I also picked up an LS6 intake from a friend to use instead of the LS1 intake, that will hold me over until I figure out something better (Dorman LS2? FAST?).

I’ll either sell the 5.3 as a dead unit or crack it open and rebuild and use in another project, haven’t decided yet.

Always looks better once the intake goes on. Thanks to Chris Miles for the great deal on an LS6 intake to replace the LS1 intake I had.

LS2 in and started! Around 4 bar cold idle oil pressure (58 psi) dropping to around 3 bar (43 psi) once the oil warmed a bit. No bad noises. Still lots of little things to do, but a big step.
