    Correct, rear Avalanche seat.

    BTW, I have an Animals Speed shop DBW pedal bracket that I highly don't recommend to anyone LS Swapping.

    How are you liking the Avalanche rear seats as you try to get them to fit? Gonna be a lot of work or just a little bit of work? Will you have to cut the floor, you think?

    I cut all the bracketry off, built a frame out of angle that bolts to the bottom of the seats and bolts to the stock brackets. They don't fold forward any longer, but I have something to sit on that doesn't smell like cat pee until I get a stock bench.

    I’ve got a scar on the top of my foot nearly a year and a half later from doing that very thing.

    Well the K20 has a pretty major oil leak coming from the timing cover area. Like 5 quarts in 125 miles bad. Kicking myself for not resealing the motor while it was out. So Tuesday I tore it down. Timing chain had wayyyy too much play so added that to the order. Don’t know how it hadn’t skipped yet to be honest. So last night I worked on it after the kids got to bed. Finished up around 1:30am. Let it idle for around 15 minutes and put some fresh cardboard under it. No drips this morning! And a picture of the oil timing chain because everyone wants pictures
