    Shuffled some crap around and pulled the car on the lift with a couple tow straps and the truck (very carefully). I must say, I'm very excited to have this thing in the air right now! I couldn't help but take a quick video and snap a picture or two. I don't even know where to start tonight, so I'll probably just put a bunch of parts on the work bench and set it up for when I get some wrench time on the car. My birthday present to myself is to spend some quality time with the car, and that will be going down most of this weekend. Assuming my Saturday morning Covid shot doesn't knock me on my ass.

    Anyway, here ya go.

    I was able to spend some quality time with the T/A.

    - Installed most of the BP Automotive 94 LT>LS harness. I will be installing the rest behind the dash tomorrow.
    - Charged the battery
    - Clearanced ribs on the bottom of the LS6 intake and massaged the crossover lines.
    - Installed intake w/injectors and rails, coils, plug wires
    - Bought some O2 sensors and an LS3 to LS2 MAF adapter (my bad)
    - Cleaned up a bunch of stuff and rerouted some wiring under the car.
    - Finally installed my fancy braided trans cooler lines


    I have a laundry list of crap to do tomorrow, but I may be close to hearing this unit run. Big items next are fuel system, fluids, some more wiring tidy/cleanup and it actually might happen.

    No pictures, sadly. If you saw this thread, you may have seen a little bit of a snag I had with the junk AGM battery. Ugh, probably won't be buying one of those again anytime soon.

    In the process of removing and reinstalling the starter a few times, I broke the wires off the oil level sensor, but otherwise the car is ready for me to put the fuel system together. I think I'll install the Corvette filter in the driverside hole next to the firewall, just above the inner fenderwell. This also gives me an excuse to use the rolling air jack on my lift. The old nitrous system had some relays in there and now it's pretty open.

    I will be using a different battery as well, just a typical C6 battery. Since it's pretty big, I need to find a good battery tray for it. My original intent for this car was to basically be NHRA legal in every way, and now I don't really care, I just want to drive it around and experience that 400whp throwing my mullet back. The interior is still semi gutted, with a few hours of rewiring just sitting there, waiting for the moment. That is last on the priority list until I hear the engine run.

    Fun fact: Last summer I started making a list of things to do to the car, Roadkill-style. That followed over to this year and I found it really helpful to keep me on track.

    Is the fuse block rated to pass thru 200amps?

    A lot has changed in a few weeks, but I'll do my best to summarize.

    - Battery wiring was altered a bit from the above diagram, I'll update it eventually for anyone curious. But, I added a 2g ground off the block on the passenger side to a good ground on the chassis due to a voltage drop during cranking. Moved battery ground from the bolt near the DS exhaust tip to inside the car at the rear seatbelt bolt on the DS. The circuit breaker in the car, once I started digging, was a damn ANL 250a fuse connected via two studs. That was removed with some 0/1g wire. I did not put a circuit breaker in, maybe down the road.

    - Spare Corvette Napa battery is in along with an ICT Billet battery hold down.

    - Interior is now gutted. There was water under the carpet and it smelled funky. The carpet actually smelled funky since I got the car in 2006 lol. Cameron talked me into an HVAC delete panel, so dash is currently half off as well and that BS is coming out. Seats are out for now. I want to replace them with the Summit seats, but have them aside since they will likely go back in for the maiden voyage. I have plans for adding a bulkhead to the HVAC delete panel for the 1/0 power cable to get it away from the hack job under the factory grommet (I'll snap a pic of that nonsense when I fight that battle.

    - Dash is not out yet, I'm still trying to find all the bolts holding it on.

    - Started painted my OEM plastics ebony to match the headliner and future carpet.

    - The engine is pouring oil out of the back of the block somewhere. Not seeping, not slowly running, but POURING oil when it cranks and as it ran. I am having a hard time locating the leak, but am leaning towards a rear main seal blowout. I need another set of eyes on it. The flexplate is slinging the oil everywhere and my time is very limited.

    - My son was born on 4/5 so time has been null or limited even more than normal. But, I can't wait to have him in the shop with me and started looking at pack n plays for when I am on Dad duty when detailing lol.

    - Fuel line is temporary in the engine bay. I have the @Fastbird fuel line relo kit on the car, but may be pulling it off and mounting the Corvette regulator under the car and then running a single ptfe line up.

    - Big shout out to Cam for working on my base tune and providing advice. I'd tag him but forget his screen name on here. If you guys know it, tag him for me.

    I forgot to add that I replaced the Racetronix pump with another one. Tested relays and no dice. Not sure what caused the premature death on the old pump except maybe oh...years of sitting in turpentine old gas.
