Nothing that elegant, it's just the brackets made by Turn Key Engine Supply to hold the truck coils on the valve covers, it looks a lot like the factory GM parts just nicely cut out of steel. I've got coil extension harnesses, $30 Canadian each off Amazon.

That's a really good idea for placement!

Not much to update, had some parts come in so I'm sorting and figuring out some things. Figured I'd install the water pump so I feel like I accomplished something.

Fitted the clutch slave adapter that goes between the torque tube and the engine bell housing:



Did some work on the engine, installed the bellhousing without the clutch, I need to be able to see the pilot bearing to confirm the drive shaft has proper insertion or if it needs adjusting before installing the clutch. Also installed the mounts and cross member and placed it on rollers to be ready to go under the car for install.

This little puzzle piece is an M16 Male Metric Straight Thread x M18 Female Metric Straight Thread Adapter. This will let me run the stock 944 oil pressure guage off the opening behind the LS intake on the top rear part of the block.

Had a chance to test fit this adapter with the stock oil pressure sender from the 944. Fits well behind the LS1 intake, I just needed to shave the corner of the intake ever so slightly for clearance.

Test fit successful. Tried it with no cross member spacers, its tight to the hydroboost but fits. Need to test fit the TPC (Kooks) long tube headers without v-band clamps next, if they fit without the spacers then I'll move on to checking drive shaft insertion in the pilot bearing and the rest of the huge list. I'll go with a cowl hood to get it to shut.

Test fit of the passenger side header went smoothly. Seems to be just enough space to allow me to run without the cross member spacers. Of course the stock hood won't close, but there are ways around that.

Had to drop the engine down a bit to test fit the driver side header. Got a length of metric bar stock and cut 4 long pieces to thread into the cross member holes on the body so when I lowered the engine it stayed lined up with the holes. Worked like a charm. Was able to go up and down at will and fiddle with the header to get it in from below. The passenger side goes in easily from below with the engine mounted. No such luck with the driver side as the spacing on the tubes is wider to allow the steering shaft to pass through them.
