    It lives

    Hi all,

    Just thought I would upload this one today!

    After a little head scratching and a call to Dave at Canems, I successfully started the LS3 today.

    Canems was simple enough to fit but sussing out the connections on the GD loom and then working out how to wire in the aftermarket ignition and starter puzzled me for a bit.

    Apologies for the state of the garage, the state of my hair and swearing as I got a little overexcited!!

    Video below!

    Thanks Guys,

    Cant tell you how good it felt, first time fire up, no issues with the wiring and no issues with any leaks of any sort! But you guys have already been through that...

    Yes, I was waiting for a 50 foot flame to shoot out of somewhere so fire extinguisher to hand!
