Okay, since I don't have time to work on a car right now (Or do anything else really) I'm having the garage that blew my motor install the KLZE I'm buying. Is there anything I need to have to get it in. Or anything special I need to tell the about getting it into the car. I know there's an FAQ but I really don't have the time to read through the whole thing, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out a bit.

Basics for now.... The garage that destryoed my engine will reimburse me for a new engine for my car..... Any engine
But I'm sure if I said I needed a new ECU and MAF and ots of other little add ons they might start to get irritated with me. All in all this will simply leave me with a bunch of little projects for later on.
Obviously you can swap the A/E spec intake (including the factory filter piping etc) from your KLO3 on to your ZE.. but as with the ecu you donít get the full gains from the motor.. you will also have to do something with the EGR valve
You will have to swap the rear bank exhaust manifold over and the egr valve .. you will then have to drill a hole in the rear head and swap a little grub screw from the old motor to the new. (all in all a 10 min job)To get it working .. That is if you have the need to pass emition tests..
You will also have to swap your vacuum hoses around a wee bit .. and yes all this info is on the FAQ thread .. so look @ at it you lazy B. J/K
If you aren't living on the edge...Your taking up to much space..

And I've never heard of Illinois having an emissions test...
What things sound like to me is that all I need to have done is some hoses switched around and a intake that fits?
as for power gains, i did not notice much of a power increase, but it was easy to tell that the motor was much healthier running with the correct ecu. instead of it being a strait torque curve(which was kinda fun), it started acting similar to an 03 again, just with a higher power band. it seems like my power band has just been moved up a few hundred rpms, but also there is a lot more power on tap.
