Did they understand you were mating to an LS engine? Is it the correct part in other words...

Actually, I thought so. I thought I bought the one specifically for TH400 to LS. Turns out that I screwed up. I bought a 92451. There is a 92451 LS. It looks like the only difference is that the 92451 LS has an extra tab for the top center bolts on the LS block. Damn! This should NOT make a difference in terms of the flex-plate interference. Next time I have it out, I'll weld a tab on the top. NBD.

J.W. confirmed that the only difference is that the LS model comes with metric hardware and the extra bolt tab. So I'm good.

I really like the ball and flange collectors! I had to ding the passenger floorboard a little to clear the O2 sensor. Probably should have taken the header off and tweaked the bung. Oh well, hit the easy button instead.

Just installed ICT Billet brackets for alternator, PS pump, and tensioner. They are top notch! Only minor gripe is positive stud is very close to oil filler neck on valve cover. Will cut stud down accordingly. Haven't bought PS pump yet. Have new GM pulley though.

You could change the clock position of the alternator...

Didn't think of that. I'll take a look. It came with a Alternator battery post kit #551900. No instructions though. Just pictures. Not sure what the deal is. It's just a bolt and a aluminum spacer. I can cut the stud down a little and it'd be fine.
