    I might have some of that backwards, so feel free to correct me, that's just off the top of my head.

      Some of the lumber burned in Notre Dame was over 700 years old.

      Sad to lose such a time piece, but they will rebuild, and lumber that's alive today will most likely be around for another 700 years, so that's something I would be really proud to be a part of if I was a contractor in Paris.

      They saved most of the artwork and stained glass, and I don't think anyone was injured.

        No worries, Im happy to share some of my stupid past...

        I got a DUI back in 06, then went to Canada in 07 with my cousin. I had my expired passport, a CA drivers license and my birth certificate. Not what they want, but enough to prove who I am. My cousin had a valid US passport with him, but because he was born in Iran they pulled us inside at the border and questioned the fuq out of him. Eventually they let us in, didnt give me a hard time at all.

        A year later, Im back at the border, but this time with a different group of friends. A chinese dude, a Filipino and a white guy. I have the same exact stuff as last year, but this time because Im the only middle eastern in the car, I get pulled inside for additional questioning. This time they didnt want to let me in. The little Asian Canadian border patrol chick started rattling off the colonscopy I would have to go through in order to enter Canada, and I replied with a statement along the lines of "Canadas nice, but its its worth that effort." She didnt appreciate my response and said, " Are you insulting my nation!" to which I kinda backpeddled and said "whoa whoa whoa, calm down." Told my friends to drop me off back in Blaine WA, but then couldnt find my passport. Went back to the little Canadian lady and she said she gave it back to me, went back to the border person, they didnt have it, went BACK to the lady and suddenly my passport appeared.... They dropped me off at a random dive bar in Blaine to which I got pretty hammered and they went off to Canada, but turns out I had more fun then them lol...

        I havent been back to the border since. Id like to be able to, so Im prepping for the colonoscopy...

                The 4.8L 5.3L and 5.7L all share the same bore, the stroke is different.
                The heads are interchangeable between the LS1, LS2, LS6 and the 4.8L and 5.3L
                The 243 heads on the LS6 (C5 Z06) are some of the best for those engines.(They flow great with sodium filled valves.)

                The LS3, and variants, LSA, LS9, and the almighty LS7 have a larger bore with varying strokes. 6.2L 6.4L and 7.0L respectively.

                The L94 engines had VVT, this is the 6.0L and 6.2L used in the G8, SS and some trucks.


                The 5.3l that was in my 2006 Saab 9-7x was all aluminum, first year it was offered in the platform. From 2007, all the SUV’s and PU had aluminum 5.3’s. So LS motor.

                  Ive alaways believed the heads are what really is the difference between a truck and a car. The 5.3 iron/aluminum trunk motors have vortec iron heads, hence the name vortec 5.3. Some early 2000's suburbans and Silverados have aluminum LS1 block and iron truck heads.

                  The Camaro, Corvettes etc. Have aluminum heads and aluminum blocks. For the most part LS blocks are interchangeable and so are heads. So while a iron block truck engine 5.3/6.0/7.0 isn't a "car engine" it's still a LS family motor.



                  Secondly,
                  When you call out a swapper for not having a LS because he has a iron block. What does he call it? It's a LS family motor, same design just a iron block. The reason people react to getting "called out" for a fake LS, is because they are self conscious for not having the cool light block.

                  If I put my 5.3 iron block in a car I'm calling it a LS swap, simply because it's easier then "5.3 vortec iron block truck motor" It's not a LSA, LS3, etc.

                    Also, most LS rebuilders look to the 799 heads (cathedral ports) that were only installed on the 5.3l “truck” LS motor..

                      if your issue was back in 06, i don't think you have to worry about it anymore. i am pretty sure it only goes back 10 years. i think after that, you have rehabilitated yourself.

                        Im pretty sure nothing will come up, and Im probably overthinking it. I just dont want any surprises and my attempts to get an answer from Canada has been fruitless

                              Just pick up this baby to drive while my M10 is hogging the corner with control arms that need to be installed already. Can’t get the original off on passenger side because exhaust is in the way.
