I spent most of the day today reinstalling the engine back in the car. It took me about an hour and a half just to fill the converter with 1 quart of fluid and to modify the cam sensor bracket and make it fit nicely. Everything went pretty smooth. The engine did not fall and crash on the fenders or anything like that so this is a plus .

Here are some photos of my accomplishments today. I can't wait to wrap things up tomorrow and fire it up. I still need to install the starter, fans, CAI and add all the fluids. Stay tuned for a video

thanks man! I am a bit nervous about starting it up though. I feel pretty confident of all the work i've done but it is my first engine teardown. Everything should be good though.

So you stated that you never did this before , and yet you decided to make A G5 the guinea pig for all of this . Just would like to know what you do for a living and how did you learn to do this thing ?

Please don't call these cars G5's (sounds like a Pontiac), C5's (those are corvettes). Why not SS or 5th Gen or plain old Camaro. Lol

Guys it's not rocket science as long as your organized and clean you'll be fine. Not hard at all. It's better to build it instead of buying it. It's also nice to get to know your car.

I am an electronics engineer for a living working in research. I started out as an electronics technician and worked my way up over the years. I also own my own business servicing professional 2-way radios for public safety and such.

I have done a lot of work on cars in the past. I started out as a kid with my dad. Some of my car work includes brakes, water pumps, alternators, wheel hub assemblies, struts, axles, gear box etc. It is rare I take my other cars in for repairs unless they are under warranty of course.

It really isn't that hard if you do the research and follow instructions well. I've read tons of material way ahead of time and didn't start the work until I had all the info, parts and tools at hand. Here is one of the books I read which was extremely useful. This book I highly recommend, it has good pictures and explanations. You can find it at Amazon.

And a video of the very first start up. Sorry it's short and i didn't take the time to edit it but I will make much better videos after the tune.

Everything fired right up as expected with no issues. The thumbs up is for oil pressure Once the engine warmed up I couldn't keep it running as this was expected unless I gave it some gas to around 1K rpm. Can't wait to get it tuned and make it lope like it's supposed to.

Ject, the fact you relocating the fuse box is just as brave!

I told my wife that all I wanted for Christmas is a new tune! Lol
