    Its been 6 months. I figured I would check to see how this project is going. It seems like you are much further along than I pretend to be.

    I am up to the wiring but in no way have I addressed the HVAC system. Wanna here the LS1 run first.

    Get us up to speed. Have you been secretly terrorizing Toronto? Keep up the good work.

    Re: Can't wait!!!

    - 4" intake is done
    -coolant lines all done
    -changed alternator from gto to Camaro
    -6 point harness almost done.
    -some progress on the wiring.

    Progress is slow and at times discouraging when I get the motivation to work on her it seems I often run into road blocks.
    Besides the crazy amount of overtime I had at work last year I'm also a crew member on the superclass championship winning team in CTCC (www.touringcar.ca)
    Just spent all of last weekend putting the race car back together (engine, trans, suspension...) we are also building a new race car we hope to finish for the F1 race weekend in Montreal. I'll try and get more done on the Catera this summer and make a better effort in updating this thread.

    Very cool. Nice looking car. We accept your apology. Now, which one of the crew members in the picture is you?

    You mean the ugly skinny guy without a hat? Oh well, I've been disappointed by my heroes before. Have you considered steroids? Just kidding dude. I envy you. Never had a group of friends crazy enough to crew a racecar. You're a lucky guy.

    Hey guys. Newbie here. Love what I'm seeing so far. Can this swap be done without the LPE parts "kit" using mostly GTO parts ? Thanks !

    It's been done. Read this earlier thread and it should answer your questions.
