Using Motech's install kit which is pretty strait forward. They have been very helpful answering any questions we have. With everything that we are doing at the same time, this is going to be a long process.

I believe if we weren't doing all the other stuff that the LS could be done in a little over a week. Maybe less than a week.

One thing that is stalling is the upgraded PSC power steering gear with hydro assist. Gear box is on back order.

Can't move forward with the suspension, front axle install and the the exhaust till we have the gear. Already sold my old gear so we can't even use that for mock up.

Drivers side has limited space for exhaust, front drive shaft, suspention and steering so we need everything for mock up to move forward.
