Who knows, they don't test where I live, the car has not been tested ever.

It'* alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It runs, I have yet to move it, but the tranny goes into gear and everything!!!!!!

I have no tag or insurance on it, and not surprisingly the brake rotors have a thick coat of rust on them, so I pulled them off and I'm getting them turned after work today. Gotta get that year old 87 octane out of the tank, and get some fresh 93 before it drives too!

For those that don't know.
The Car- 1996 Bonneville SE 302k original miles

The Swap - 1996 L67, 1997 4T65eHD Tranny, 97 Intense PCM, Modified stock 96 L67 Wiring Harness, lots of new parts

The Goodies (NOT installed yet) - Walbro fuel pump, Fuel pump hotwire kit, 3.4 MPS, Oversized idler pulley

The Goodies (Installed) - Aeroforce, FWI

I haven't installed some parts yet, I wanted to make sure everything works right before I started adding more variables to the picture. The entire system still needs to be installed also, the audio/video is completely gutted right now. It will all be in place also before it drives. The car got a stereo sponsor this year (Soundstream Audio), so it'* got some new stuff going in it, including all new Soundstream wires, they asked me to take all of the Stinger out of it.

Full write up, pics and vids to follow
