    John often put Special T stickers over original part numbers; try taking the sticker off and maybe you'll find a number underneath. The 100110ST number is almost certainly a number internal to John's...

    This depends on the car itself. If you're buying a driver, go see it. There is no question. Especially if they're saying there's nothing wrong with it. Because if you're paying for a car with no...

    Seeing as I've worked with Josh on some of these parts for the last 6 years, I've got to come to defense on this. You have no idea what you're talking about. These swap parts are the most refined and...

    Don't overcomplicate this; pull the plugs, stick the compression tester into the hole, and crank the engine.

    You should always get hard evidence of a blown head gasket before assuming you have a blown head gasket. Water/Coolant in the oil, exhaust gas in the coolant, significant white smoke consistently...

    There are some wires that are either constantly hot, or have switched power; off hand I believe purple is usually fused live 12v all the time, and brown is un-fused 12v all the time. Personally...

    I just had this conversation recently at a PPG location because I was trying to paint my motorcycle's gas tank. Bottom line, there is no single part spray can paint that is going to resist gasoline....

    Shannon I'm not sure I follow your signature. There is about 57 years listed there... Is your car actually a 1964 DeLoeran? :wink:

    I'm guessing it has something to do with the 2nd angle drive. Did...

    This type of fuel sender can be rebuilt to if necessary. I did this recently on a different car that uses the same style. I believe it was also a 0-90ohm resistance gauge, which after doing the math...

    My dad owned and operated at speed shop back in the 70's. He said he had multiple people come in over the years with '63 split window Corvettes and ask him to cut out the split and install a '64 rear...

    Just know that there are limits. Be smart and don't be abusive.

    I spent several years working on a 1 piece shaft, and got so comfortable that I pushed it until it cracked the case. Bottom line,...

    There is a lot to consider here. Horsepower and torque increase with RPM. As those increase, the load driving meshing gears apart increases. This is load that the bearings and the case have to react....

    Thanks for clarifying Josh. I didn't realize only the LS4 actually had DoD. I thought that all of the Gen 4 engines had the valley castings for the DoD plumbing but maybe I'm mistaken; or maybe they...

    What year C5? The LS3 didn't come out until the C6's came out. All C5s had either the LS1 Or the LS6 (in the Z06 model).

    One of the reasons the Gen IV LS engines (LS2, 3, 4, and 7) get notably...

    As I recall the go-to is a standard 4" stainless steel v-band clamp. Like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/372940661058

    These are commonly for turbos and exhaust systems so a lot of them come with...

    Josh is right; this is a modification I dont usually consider in the frame cutting/hacking category. I tend to look at it more of an improvement. I recall that on all Pearce stainless frames, they...

    On the topic of cutting frames, though Josh and I both have a pretty strong stance against cutting them up, that's not to say everyone agrees.

    Here are a couple examples of where the frame was cut...

    I'm going to disagree with you on that one.

    One of the main reasons I used the LS engine 10 years ago was because it was possible to do without cutting the frame. Since that time over two dozen...

    It was quite the ordeal to get it hung but totally worth it. One of the best things about it was (as I'm sure you recall) it still had the protective plastic on one side of the stainless. Presumably...
