Didn't have any sawzall blades to cut the exhaust off (not using) so had to call it a night. Did go pick up some blades for tomorrow..
When the LS gets ready to go in, I am going to start a project post for it. It isn't going to be polished up, painted etc. I am going to drop it in and go just like it is..
