Just got finished changing my plugs and wires on the bird, aside from the free ram air kit, i'v never messed with an ls1 before. Feels so smooth now...Im notsure what I should do next. I wanted to replace my motor mounts but from what I've read it looks like a huge pita.

got the ngk tr55's and some accel wires from advanced autoparts, what tools were needed for the mounts? i heard you need to drill off some rivets, would an angle grinder do the job? I have no drill:/ also did you do polys or stock mounts?

no you absolutely have to drill all the rivets out, grinder wont cut it. i did polys in the stock clamshells and pedestals. doing that part is easy. the real nightmare is installing them. i will never do that again lol
