    That's the tedious, unglamorous shit that you never see on the TV shows....keep pushing forward. Here's a gratuitous pic of an engine and trans swap I'm helping with currently. 5.3/6L80 in a square.

    The wiring, the -AN fittings that you have to cut to length and make up individually, figuring out mounting of all the extra stuff, vacuum lines, charge pipe routing, all new fuel feed and return lines...... the shit that seems like it takes forever a0nd never ends! Haha

    Making great progress! I follow Billy and his family's SRC YouTube channel. I got to see your buddies in action. Can't wait to see this up and running!

    So, I had a little time today and I figured out just a couple simple brackets to hold the bottom of the intercoolers. I just need to weld a couple bungs onto the intercoolers to finish them up.

    We all know it doesn't matter how much power you make if you can't put it to the ground and stick it. Well, I decided to go with Calvert Racing products. I got my split mono leaf rear springs in today......

    I got some free time today. I pulled the rear-end, cleaned up some brackets, got stuff out of the way, and got the leaf springs put in.
