Little update :

Got the rust off the block, and got it painted.
Starting March 5 hope to get LS out of the Camaro, get all my parts over into the LQ4 and then get it into the Camaro by March 6.

Thanks guys.

Got frame back in to push car out of shop. Motors are side by side for a part swap. Considering there's no motor the front is lower still haha. Rear stance is perfect. Much better then first day I saw the car.

Got the 6.0 out to machine shop. Not taking any chances on reliability with this one.

-New cam bearings
-New crank bearings
-cylinder hone
-new rings if required

Then doing the Trunnion upgrade to rockers.

Cam and valve train already checked out at no harm was done. So once block is back, all parts go on her and back in the car! Getting closer!
