    The covers clean it up nicely.

    Thank you. I tried looking for ones that said Camaro but nothing looked as good as these while still saying 5.7L or something related to an LS1

    As I said above, the Corvette covers are right on. You engine isn't out of a Camaro or a Trans Am, etc, so you are telling it like it is.

    It looks like you have pretty well collected just about everything you need to get this all rolling. I can't wait to see it come together.

    Thank you. Been a little bit since I've updated... Not much has been going on with the build, just waiting for the transmission to be built.

    I've decided I'm going to run a 60 segment on the engine with the proper codes and tables edited, etc with the correct relay setup to swap the solenoid firings on the transmission. I've found a 4L80E to 4L60E conversion cable with the correct relay system for this type of swap but my harness is an M6 harness. I emailed the seller and once I get the transmission and can check the lengths I need he's willing to provide me with a pigtail as opposed to the 60 connector so I can just pin them into my PCM connecter accordingly. Aside from that I've just been playing the waiting game.

    Thanks for the update. This is a very interesting project. What are your plans for the fuel system?
