Thanks a bunch man, that truly means alot!!!! The end goal is to make this setup resemble the 355 that died. I got many good years out of that setup, but the LS was the next logical step. The 355 with TPI style EFI was a PITA to tune right. I have HP tuners now for the LS which I need to learn up, but the opportunities are ridiculous.
I was goofin around the other day and made a collage of the engine bay. Here is old vs new. It's coming together as seen in my head.

I guess I need to get caught up along with the other guys. This week I got in the billet radiator fittings from Drag Race Solutions.....they look super nice!!!!
Today I picked up my Champion radiator and promptly added the fittings and sat it into the core support. Overall I'm really pleased with it, the tanks are highly polished, the tig welds look quality, and it feels heavy duty. The only issue so far is the drain petcock doesn't have room to open, so I'll need to tweak that some.

I have a set of fans ordered an en route, as well as a beefy ass trans cooler from Tru Cool which is made in Canada. I'm wearing down from work this week so not sure how far I'll get this weekend, but we'll see.

it can't always be by leaps and bounds brother,life and everything along w/it gets in the way of progress.even posting and writing about what's going on w/your project is keeping your mindset in the rite direction.(y)you'll get there.
