Here, Mike, I tell you what I'll do. I'll say that I've gone 67k trouble-free miles in my '90 Tbird (actually, it's about to roll over 68) and then tomorrow, it'll blow up on me because I said it out loud. I was saying to someone the other day that I hadn't ever gotten a ticket, then the next day I got nailed for 92 in a 65. So I guess I'd better go order some Felpros too, huh? Least they don't cost $421........ grumble grumble grumble.....

Seriously, though, good luck on it

Big Mike,

At least you go home. When the HGs went in my Super Coupe, I was 80 miles from home and had to leave the car in airport parking until I got back, then I had to rent a car to get home because I had a co-worker travelling with me.

If the HGs go in my LX, I'm dropping in a 2000 4.2L splitport. It will cost me as much as getting the super coupe fixed.

The Parts Bin Special is DEAD! It is being parted out.
