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 ****!
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 :)
