The new engine

As I stated in the last post, I will be swapping in an LS6. I found mine on Ebay and called the place before hitting "buy it now". Be aware, the prices stated online are negotiable, even if they don't provide a "make offer" button. I managed to save about $400.00 from the price listed on the auction. Here is the engine when it arrived and a few of the loading/unloading process.

This was how it arrived. Well packaged and as expected. I had it shipped to a local business because it was free.

This is it being triumphantly loaded on my truck:

And the Unload:

Finally, here it is on the stand. I stripped all of the unnecessary bits like the old wiring harness and engine mounts.

I will be using a wiring harness from Wiring Specialties. They have been EXTREMELY helpful through this process. I don't think there are any alternative options out there for custome wiring harnesses, but nonetheless, I highly recommend them.
