Baby steps:


Coolant drained and fan shroud out:

Room for activities!

Factory cruise control?

Wonder if I can keep it working?

Is the LS DBW? If so, I don’t think you need all the external vacuum junk for it anymore, it’s directly controlled by the ECU and throttle body, I believe.
The LS that’s going in is DBC

What brand/model is the radiator again? Let us know how it fits. Soooo many "G body" radiators don't fit for shit!
It was purchased from Ebay but the listing no long appears. I will report back how it fits.

Test fitting the battery relocation:


While I was under the car making sure I wouldn't hit anything with the drill, I noticed that the car had been undercoated, likely right before purchase. There is ZERO surface rust on anything. Just a nice black rubber coating on ever little bit of undercarriage.

Such a pleasant surprise :cool:

Judging by the print on that label those are Chinese knock-offs. My genuine 450s look nothing like that.
I don't doubt that. $60 each on ebay = Chinese knock offs. But they should still work, for a while at least :)
