You pick it up a toss it in. 2 people can easily lift an Ecotec. BTW, Ecotecs fit soo nice in that spot.

T!M8!T: we used the engine hoist and muscled it in. Seats are out of a cobalt.

more wrench time on the car today...

modded the l61 coilpack



and the lsj coil cover


opened up the blower phenolic spacer


and installed the mtech short shifter linkage


I started to cut up the driver's side axle in an attempt to be able to split the case on the trans but I ran out of cutoff wheels.

welp cutting corners on my original LSD install came back to bite me in the ass...







issue has been remedied for reinstall... beveled the inner gears so the c-clips on the axles will now compress when trying to remove.


also got the cps bracket realigned and the sensor installed

Jealous of those trans mounts. So you plan to not use the lsj belt tensioner?

i'm going to give this belt routing a try...



I'm a bit apprehensive about the minimal wrap on the alt pulley but I can always revert to the lsj routing in the event that this doesn't work.

Curious how you would convert to LSJ routing without the compressor on it? Is there an AC delete setup for it?

Gutted compressor is what Iíve seen used. There is not an actual delete pulley available.
