    Yep. Took it in assuming valve adjustment, but told the guys at Clownshoe to do a vacuum leak test and a handful of other things just in case. Nothing came up, so after adjusting valves through 5 cylinders, they noticed a very odd reflection off of one of the rockers. Not a fun thing to have to do so soon after swapping engines, but how often do you see something like this!? Hoping I'm done with random failures with this car for some time. *fingers crossed*

    The old cam would make a pretty cool lamp...

    Just a cheap 8$ set of "OEM" BMW centre caps for my wheels from eBay. Quality seems fine IMO

    A L33, its a all aluminum 5.3L that was in some trucks. Its pretty much a smaller bore LS6 found in the C5 corvette. The only parts i have for it so far is this LS2 intake.

    JB Racing flywheel and M5 clutch installed along with the rebuilt 5 speed. Had the diff rebuilt with a Thayer 3 clutch kit while it was in there. This sucker screams and hooks up very nicely now. Much easier to rev match too with the new flywheel/clutch.

    Almost forgot, also had a set of these put in to replace the OE mounts. Paired with the UUC red tranny mounts I put in 10,000 miles ago, the drivetrain is nice and snug now.

    That's just a small fraction of what I already threw into it. At least this is reusable on many other cars too

    Remote unlocking/locking. Simple install and works a treat.


    Glovebox fix. Once I read the email install was a breeze.
    No more bouncing smily face glovebox.

    What kind of brackets are needed to rut these up. I did not know the rears fit as well.

    Finally got Photobucket working again, so here's the new NT01s on the Apex wheels I've had sitting in the garage for months. Wheels are EC-7s in 18x8.5 ET35 front and 18x10.5 rear ET27 wearing 235/40-18 and 275/35-18 NT01 respectively. Going to have to raise the ride height slightly and go to a smaller spacer in the front for clearance issues nearing full lock.
