        Home Depot and Lowe's are historically awful for not bothering to tell you they didn't have anything that matched your results, then throwing their entire inventory into search results (654,789 results for class 12.9 metric bolts? I don't think so...).
        Amazon is sort of good at parametric search.

        Summit is really good at parametric search

        The absolute best anywhere is McMaster-Carr, though. No one else is even close. It continually stuns me that Grainger and MSC think they're actually competing in that space.
        I use MSC for looking up fasteners all the time.

        Hilti is also a very useful website, not as easy to use tho.
        I do things.

          Speaking of shitty websites to buy stuff from, I'm sick of websites moving from "we sell this" to "check out these sellers." Home Depot and Walmart are the offenders that come to mind. If I went to Home Depot or Walmart's site it was to try and find something at the local store not to filter through shitty knockoff chinese goods that have 5 star reviews because the seller gives you a gift card if you leave one, if I felt like dealing with that I'd be on Amazon. Even when I'm on Amazon I'm ticking the "ships from and sold by Amazon.com" box most of the time, "sellers" on these sites are to be avoided unless absolutely necessary imo.

              Varg, we have Fastenal and a little drive for you, but Broward Bolt has been an awesome local resourse for me. They literally have every common fastener in stock and can even get off ball stuff. Family owned now for at least 2 generations. McMaster has even more, but they charge a premium for it.

                I'm spoiled, I live right next to the mcmaster warehouse, so I can just go pick up whatever I need, but yeah they do charge a pretty penny for their stuff

                  Fastenals really vary based on the industy each branch serves, and 9.9 times out of 10 it's not Euro car shops or dealers.

                    Toaster, probably also has to do with location. It's quite populated in the tri-county here, there's several stores around, also at least 4 Grainger I can think of.

                      First time I ever had a snow delay for a road race. Up here in Atlanta with about 3" of snow on the ground. :/

                        Wow how clear did the track get before going again? I bet Georgia shut down freaking out over that amount of snow.

                          Horrible. Race was called at 8pm due to fog. I drove around the track for almost 2hr under double yellow. But, we got the Sportsmanship award because the team built a 7 foot tall snowman instead of moping around and complaining. Random number generator for pole caused is to start in the last 2/3rds, finished dab in the middle. Storm started at lap 15 or so for the race leader (we were 13), and finished something like 100 laps overall - mind you, laps are about 2min under green. Still an awesome road trip!

                            I had seriously annoying Craigslist experience this weekend. I found a another M54 that had low miles great compression and a complete harness for 300$ coordinated with the guy and brought my trailer over a hour through LA Saturday. right as I pull up to what appeared to be a shop i get a text:
                            "sorry I had to go"
                            I call and get a woman on the phone
                            "yah sorry he had to go" ???? she then told me when they lifted up the longblock with a forklift they saw a hole in the side on the block. WTF

                            So i get there and after assessing the damage and the scene looks like the guy lifted the motor up and it fell and destroyed the oil pump and surrounding area.... and got so mad he left his wife to make the deal. They gave me so many excuses "ive seen these motors fail like this before" ---- theirs a oil stain by a crushed pallet...

                            100$ and I got a fully dressed motor with all the parts to complete mine so not bad

                              ^ are there off the shelf mounts for that motor/tranny or is it all custom work?

                                for the M54 swap?

                                its no different than any M5x swap.
