Got the throttle done:

Believe it or not, that 36" Lokar TC-1000LS1 kit fit perfectly.  Just had to trim the extra cable from the throttle body side so that the clip would fit.  Also manually tested the throw of the foot pedal and it appears to be 100% of the throttle body throw.

Working on the accessory drive.  I'll probably redo all of it in the future.

I made an attempt at the power steering mount and also I have a manual tensioner now.  Tensioner is probably going to have to be re-worked but the pump mounting is pretty well aligned, believe it or not!  I just used mild steel for everything so I'm considering this v0.1; at some point I'll try and come up with cad designs for some AL replacement mounting!

That looks plenty beefy on that mount!

Got some belts yesterday and today, but they are proving to me that I'm definitely going to have to spend some time fine tuning the belt drive.

That belt is a K060966 (96.6 inches or 97-1/8" / 2468mm).  I might have to go with the 1 inch smaller one, K060956 long-term.  I'm going to have to re-position the PS to Alternator idler for sure which should get me better access to the tensioner amongst other things.  All of the mounting needs more bracing because they flex a lot right now!   :-[

Got a lot of wiring done tonight. Transmission is wired up.  Starter is wired.  Tach is wired.  Chassis is connected to the battery now.  Still have a bit more wiring to do before I can turn the key though.

Looks like a pretty tight fit with all that stuff in there.

Yah, the engine is definitely "high and forward" due to the fact I haven't cut the front crossmember.  At some point in the future I'd like to get a fully fabbed crossmember that would let me move it down and back.  Right now it sits about 1/2" above the stock crossmember at the oil pan and is limited moving back due to it being high up.  Everything does fit in there, though, without hitting the hood so far.

Here's a pic of some of the wiring work I did this past weekend.  This is pretty much the only cut of the stock harness I did--I installed a ground connection for the fuel pump relay.  The Yellow/Black wire normally gets grounding from the Bosch ECU, but I've modified it to be hardwired to ground, while the Blue/Yellow gets power from the GM PCM.

That looks nice and clean.    Good wiring is key to a sound swap.
