    updates from over the weekend.

    Saturday i efforted the exhaust stud removal again, this time with a tip from a guy on LS1tech using a flat washer to do a plug weld on then welding a nut to the washer to spin it out. Worked fantastic. Got 2 of 3 out saturday night and ran out of washers and nuts. im still learning to weld proficiently and blew through the washer a couple times. @Doat got a couple action shots.




    and the removed bolts because why not.

    Sunday @James92TSi came by and we gave it another shot on that last one.



    VICTORY

    then we fixed the dipstick tube which broke somehow. because when you are welding why not keep welding and use your LS motor as a bench vise lol.



    he had to take off so i ended up cleaning up the garage and organizing my tools again. they have been strewn about 2-3 work areas around the garage. after that i just sat and enjoyed the view for a little while before going in.

    i had Monday and today off work so i relaxed Monday and got some work done today.

    Pulled the test fit motor out of the chassis and pulled the parts off of it and put them where they go. then mounted the new hooker blackheart motor mount plates in place and made sure that all fit the motor thats going in.







    going to try and get this the engine and transmission into the car this weekend so i can start clearancing the floor. need to mark where that is and start hammering. hopefully be able to have it in place in the engine bay this weekend.

    For all the trouble I would’ve just gotten the turbo setup so no more heavy under hood work would need to be done. Good progress though, lmk when you work on it and I’ll swing by to hang.

    You would have turbo’d the V6 that wasn’t even there?

    You might want to go back and read the thread
