RX7 LS1 First Start Up
This is when we went to pick up the RX7 after the LS1 was installed. Here's
the first start up with us there.

944/LS1 Conversion Engine Run-up
After a year of work trying to get the engine in, here is the first run of
the Corvette LS1 engine since its removal from the original car. May look
calm and collected, but I was really terrified! Throttle is computer
controlled, and I was afraid that any incorrect wiring would cause the car
to go redline and tear out of the garage with me hanging on for dear life.
From what you see in the video, all went well - just wish I could have run
it longer, but I don't have the cooling system installed yet. I hope to get
it in soon!
