Nice.

For moving it around the shop and installing the trany and stuf I suggest you pick up a set of LSX Cradle/Stand with casters

Re: Finally my LS3 is on the stand

Thanks John, The stand actually has casters on it. I'm getting ready to install the Holley oil pan. I just read the directions and Holley mentions something about cutting out rivets in/on the gasket. WTH is this LOL.

I mean for when it's off the engine stand and ready for the tranny install.

There are 2 rivets that hold the oil pan gasket to the oil pan. East to just drill out with a 1/8" bit. The gasket is used to install the Holly pan. Don't forget the dabs of RTV on the four corners where the front and rear covers meet the block

Re: Finally my LS3 is on the stand

Yeah guys, it has been a wait to say the least. Had the engine since March. Just removed it from the crate Sunday.
