We might as well crack open that can of worms @Trent TMM You are way ahead of me at this point.Let me know if you run in to any issues on things I may have already come up with solutions.
The setup is Ls3 with a t56 mag xl.We might as well crack open that can of worms @Trent TMM You are way ahead of me at this point.
What drivetrain are you running?
If automatic what shifter are you running
What manifolds/headers are you running?
what Radiator are you running,? It doesn't appear to be stock.
It looks like you fabricated heater lines?
What waterpump are you running?
Are you running AC?
Are you using the factory Trans cooler? If did you use adapters?
I haven't gotten to electrical yet but do I even need to ECM?
BTW while we were setting the engine/trans, I was checking to see if some Speed Engineering headers would fit the wrong way (towards the back). The didnt. BUT they do fix the right way forward facing so if she does well in this my spare turbos will have a perfect spot for both sides.

Tried to convince my daughter to go manual, she says she isn't ready...The front dress is all CTS-V with a straight t-stat neck.
The heater lines are all aluminum hard line to get it to the front of the motor. Keep in mind ford and gm flip the line sizes on the in and out of the hearer core .so not as simple as hooking the 5/8 line to the 5/8 fitting on the water pump.the 5/8 out of the core will go in to the 3/4 on the LS pump. The radiator is the ford racing for the stock 4.6 that was in the car .
The lower factory hose needs to have the t removed and it hooks right up.
Things like the reverse lights are running through the factory ecu so with out it the car needs a standalone system.
And I'm finding thats how a bunch of things are going to be .
Even the radio talks to the factory ecu.
Tried to convince my daughter to go manual, she says she isn't ready...
So heater core is technically reversed then? Did you make your own aluminum hardlines?
Is you Upper hose on the passenger top and the lower on the Drivers lower? Did you use any special hoses? I just ordered a LS1 Water pump and spacers and a straight Tstat housing.
I heard there were a few things the harness relies on via the ECM but I heard these can be sorted out.
