Anyone know the part number or where to get a replacement for the short very curved vacuum line that connects to the throttle body mine is split where it connects...?

@  EnderDRM : (13 September 2017 - 12:04 AM)

So the headers and 3" exhaust is on. Sounds pretty good.

I'm looking for regal "GSX" emblems. Anyone have any for sale? I am looking for the OEM SLP GSX chrome emblems. Thanks

@  EnderDRM : (30 August 2017 - 09:27 PM)

Hi all, I thought I would get the plugs replaced while the headers are being installed. Recomendations for plugs?

You are making me do things....I need to spend time on stupid car stuff

@  Marchi1 : (12 July 2017 - 02:35 AM)

How is everyone doing tonight?

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:52 PM)

some of the 99 pcms will work take a 01 bin, those you can change the vin # ive found.

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:50 PM)

the vin is kept in the pcm, you cant change the vin @ with dhp on 01 up cars, so if you use a the cars pcm with dhp it will retain the cars vin#. so if you flash a new bin to the pcm, its vin stays put.

@  RacingRegal36 : (08 July 2017 - 11:05 PM)

i need a bin that will work with this vin: 1g4cu541914206781

@  RacingRegal36 : (08 July 2017 - 10:33 PM)

does anyone have a 2000 park avenue .bin file?

@  M_Dogg : (08 July 2017 - 04:33 PM)

Purolator PureOne, Wix, Napa Gold.

No Fram, though Bob is the Oil Guy did have better results with their higher end filters that didn't have cardboard endcaps.

Check that site out for more info than you can handle on all things lubrication.

Cursory research shows it's a good filter but it seems you can get a better value in other, less expensive filters.

I use nothing but OEM acdelco #47. You can use the bigger #52 filter but if properly maintained you will never use that much filter.

Old stock Delcos are still ok but it seems the new ones went to a plastic "Ecore" inner tube instead of a metal one. Take a peek inside your Delco before buying it. I think you can tell for sure by looking at the holes in the top of the filter, but I can't find that info right now.

The K&N is the best you can get, it has the smallest particles of any oil filter on the market.

napa gold, which USED to be Wix... was always first on my list. unfortunately wix is no longer in business, the Affina group bought them. did they close the wix plant ala the movie tommy boy? no. but do they adhere by the same quality standards as Wix? who knows.

I would say if someone doesn't want to use a K&N, Amsoil would be the next best thing.

Amsoil oil filters are Hastings Gold Plus that are labeled as Amsoil.

I'm using Purolator Pure One.

Bosch and Mobil 1 are good as well. These are in addition to the WIX, NAPA Gold, and K&N already mentioned.

This is dated but it shows which companies place emphasis on marketing rather than filter quality: http://www.knizefami.../reference.html

AC-Delco PF47, I never felt the need to go with anything else because I always do my oil changes well before 3 month or 3K intervals. Plus I'm an OEM filter kind of guy, LOL

You can never go wrong with a factory filter, it's just that there are better out there. A Delco filter will do just fine.
