    I agree. Post up a link, ernest. I remember watching my mechanic replace mine a few years ago and it was a pain in the backside... for him. I was drinking a coke and supervising.

    Smart dude.

    Kinda makes the idiots who use a hole saw on the cowl look even more idiotic than they did before, eh?

    I'm changing mine right now .
    It took me 4 mins to make a hook with a clothes hanger and get the connector off the top of the sender unit .
    Now I'm waiting on my buddy to bring me a socket and extension .
    This is my first ls1 and the first thing I've done on the vette .
    I'll keep you updated on the total time this takes me after I get the tools over here .
    I'm betting maybe 10 mins to take the unit out and get the new one in .

    Default Just had my mechanic replace mine.

    I do believe he removed the cowl instead of cutting it or removing the intake.He said he can't figure out why everyone has such a problem with this.Wish I could of watched how he did it so I don't have to go through this again,150 bucks,not too bad.

    Ok , job completed in the dark..lol
    Took 2 mins to get old unit out .
    Took 6 mins to get new unit in , I have big hands so it was hard getting the new one started with my fingers .
    Took another 6 mins to get the connector back on , but I couldn't see and my stubby fingers kept getting in the way .

    I did drop the old unit and it went way down and hit something , not sure how to find it since I have no jack small enough to lift the car yet . I know it hit something solid..lol

    It's behind the manifold on the drivers side .
    You should see wires going to it next to the fuel rail .

    There is a gap between the fuel rail ,the manifold and the firewall.you can see it with a flashlight when you look in the gap .


    Edit : you need to take that cover off that goes over the fuel rail , then look down where my keys are hanging .
