Heater

The Heat­er was a chal­lenge (tor­tu­ous) to install, thank­fully I had the bene­fit of being able to val­id­ate my approach along­side those oth­er blog­gers that have gone before me. Non­ethe­less whilst straight­for­ward, it is time con­sum­ing and requires quite a con­sid­er­able amount of work.

Start­ing with the Heat­er unit itself ;

  1. Remove the fan
  2. Remove the side cov­ers
  3. Remove the heat­er mat­rix
  4. Remove the mount­ing flanges from the side cov­ers
  5. Fit 4x rivnuts not­ing that they must not impede the Heat­er Mat­rix once rein­stalled
  6. Make a tem­plate and offer it to the bulk­head ensur­ing that it is both square and that the hose holes with­in the engine bay also align
  7. Drill, reas­semble and fit

      I haven’t fully con­nec­ted mine up yet but I am work­ing on the return line being the hose at the low­est point on the mat­rix (closest to the rear engine bulk­head) this has a 90 deg hose between the heat­er and the skin of the engine bay. NOT the one with the vis­ible 90 deg hose which is the high pres­sure hose (con­nec­ted to the upper mat­rix uni­on which is usu­al). On the LS3 the return con­nects to the nar­row­est uni­on on the water pump (left as you look at it, side on)
