    Second this. Good for filters, though. Tend to have Mahle stuff at lower prices than FCP.

    Ordered a replacement Denso radiator for the 3rd gen from them, same pn and all that, showed up as made in China, sent right back. Ate shipping both ways. Not doing that again.

Same thing thats in my Camaro except I left the RWD 3.4 pistons so it's 14:1 compression.

        Your brother's car must be insane. Thos DOHC 3.4's were underrated, even in NA form. People just hated them because they can be a pain to time all those cams. Did he use the Getrag 284? Rare gearboxes, but hard the break. Most of those transverse came G282
        Your parts bin build is very cool, hows 14.1 going to play with boost though or even with anything but 108 octane lead, if you can even get that ANYWHERE. Or are you setting that up for N/A only.

        Yes the Lq1 was very underrated, it was supposed to be a 300/300(ish) power plant for the midsized line up, but hydromatic could not build a slush box that could live behind it at the time so it was gelded with tuning

        LOL that LQ1 is anything but stock, Crank is forged unit out of the factory Blown Malibu Maxx SS with the 3.5l, custom pistons and rods, IIRC its about 9.5:1. Yes hes got a pallet of 284 5spd boxes (3 or 4 of them) that came from Germany for a replacements that were OEM for Opals of some verity IIRC so 1st gear is a little shorter than 284's that were in the Z34's (IIRC). We both figured it was making about 550ish at the crank in that photo, General math and bench racing guestimates were closer to 600. Really have no idea what it will make, as the innards are in theory built 30 ish psi, but that will be testing the block itself and just how forged that crank is

          Yesterday, I got to the shop and found this German Shepard pup with a rope around her neck and she couldn't even stand up.

          Poor thing was so malnourished that she didn't even have the energy to pick herself up...

          People are such pieces of shit.

          had to stay with her all day because she cant pick herself up to pee or poo

                      Oh and rockauto is the same quality parts as vatozone and O'reily's, When you factor in the shipping, might as well go and get it from the box stores so that if the new part is bad, you can just take it back and get another that day.

                        nothing to add about photobucket.

                        congratulations on the baby! you had a daughter so your life is fucked for the next 18 yrs. still though. awesome!

                        as to rock auto, they are much much cheaper but sometimes the quality is sketchy. the secret is to buy parts that have that little red heart next to it. those are the ones they have been selling for a long time and have had a good track record with few returns or complaints.

                          Bimerboi, you are preaching to the choir. Look up the term "latch key kid". Broken home, single mom working 2 jobs as a real estate agent by day, waitress at night with a brother 3 years younger in the 80's. He fell into hard core drugs and OD'd at 23, woke my ass up to reality. We all as humans have to deal with reality, suck it up buttercup. :P

                          I may not have had a broken home but the last part hit home and can agree that makes reality hit hard. I did many many drugs up until i was 21. Then a really close childhood friend died from laced coke and it hit like a brick wall. I dropped everything and focus on what was important. Now i have a career and am focusing on what i need to in life not partying 24/7
