    Caution - the LS6 engine and cover can be very hot!

    Allow the engine to cool to ambient temperature before performing the cover installation.



    1. Use a 18-mm socket on an extension with a ratchet to remove the four bolts circled in green that attach the strut tower brace. Once the four bolts are removed, lift the strut tower brace off and set it aside.

    9. Place the strut tower brace back across the engine, lining it up over the white plastic locating dowels in the strut towers. By hand, thread in the four strut tower brace bolts removed in Step 1. Once hand snug, torque the four bolts with an 18-mm socket to 83 lb-ft (112 Nm).
