Test fitting the LS in the Porsche

The time has come to test fit the engine and transmission in the Porsche chassis. We did the prep work on the engine, which included installing the clutch/flywheel and mating the LS3 engine to the Porsche transmission via an adapter plate. We then installed various components on the engine, such as the alternator and mount plates. The next step was figuring out how to test fit the compilation in the Porsche.

Since there was no way the engine was going to drop in from the top, we decided to put the engine/transmission on a steel work bench, and drop the chassis on to the engine.

After a few modifications, the engine fit pretty easily!
