@Ashikabi wanted to mention this since I saw an issue in @spitsnaugle build and looks like you may run into the same problem with the way your spark plug wires are currently routed.

I was hoping (since I already had these plug wires) that with ceramic coating the headers, and DEI insulation sleeves, they'd be ok... but after an hour's drive to work, two are toast.
This was his solution that worked

Tough to tell without seeing how all yours were routed but figured I'd mention it to save you some heartache in the future if they were routed the same as his first attempt.

Thanks for looking out. I did see that and made super short wires to (hopefully) work around it. None of them are particularly close now that I'm using the JBA GTO shorty headers. They aren't wound near as tight as the CX headers were. They also clear my AC nicely, unlike the CX headers

Got out into the garage again. Gonna work on mounting the transmission again even though I'll gave to take it back out anyways. I was trying to avoid this but it's better than nothing.

Anyways, I installed the Cusco differential brace and changed the fittings on my Racer X dual catch can to work with the LS1.

I got most of the way done with installing Whiteline subframe bushing inserts. Last subframe mount bolt said"fuck you" and cross threaded. I ordered a tap to clean up the threads in the frame, should be finished next weekend.

This happened to me to on the front passenger bolt. The tap worked like a charm. Good luck looking good!

Thanks. I still can't get it running but I suppose I can get the transmission mounted. I was trying to avoid putting it in and taking it out needlessly but it's better than doing nothing
