You give any thought to bringing the heater hoses through the firewall on the passenger side - so you don't have to move them across the compartment? You can still fit the control valve in the same place -- just run a longer hose from that side back over the passenger side. Just a thought....

I have thought about it, but I also have 2 additional intercooler lines to run from the back of the intake manifold all the way up to the front of the engine bay. I am unsure how I am going to get 4- 3/4" hoses around the bay and have it look clean. I am considering running them in 3/4" Stainless with flared ends and just flexible connections at the connections. Still figuring that part out. Trying to keep it clean without **** going everywhere is difficult.

Thanks man. I am very new to the area and dont know anyone, seems like car dudes are few and far between.

Ill hit you up if I need a hand or let me know when you are in the area and you can stop in and say hi.

Should have a boat load of parts showing up this week, Trans will be ready for pickup Wednesday if all works out well, I pickup Thursday.

IPD Saturday so probably wont get much done until the following weekend.

Know what you mean -- I put a Classic Auto Air universal A/C system in mine when I pulled the Ford motor out and put the LS in. Heater and A/C all on the passenger side with limited real estate. That was part of the reason I went rattle can black -- try to "lose" some of the harness/hose in the sea of black.

You'll figure it out - you always do a good job of that.

The heater hose line with the classic ac system is on the passenger side and makes it easier to hook them up coming through the passenger side.

Was thinking more of Hackster having to route the LS heater hoses from the passenger side to the driver's side inside the engine compartment. That 'crossover' can easily be done behind the firewall minimizing the plumbing under the hood. In my experience, I try to avoid having plumbing run from one side of the compartment to the other side, especially behind the engine. And with the LS in the there, real estate around the brake booster/steering shaft/rearmost coil pack is limited. Access for maintenance becomes more challenging.

Either choice can be made to work -- just thinkin' out loud.

I had to deal with it a few times from 1996-2015 when mine was Ford powered.
