Dont be surprise on how much THEY cost (fuel injector or rings...if you get them from the dealer!)

That'* quite true, also. The Felpros are cheaper, and at least as good of quality.

Did you check online, or did you have them check? It'* called something like the plenum gasket. It'* a standard Felpro item. My parts supplier was able to easily get one for me.

Check out this link. The part numbers are listed in the third post down. All purchased at Advance except the coolant elbows.

dang, I left before I read your posts. I just bought the supercharger gasket at the dealership(same price, $10) with the LIM gasket set. im glad you posted that link, i didnt know what those two rubber pieces were that came with them. makes sense now although I asked the parts guy about the o-rings, he said there wasnt any listed. he even printed out a parts "explosion" to show me, now that i see that its only two, I just spotted them oh well, ill just try to go to a dealership up where im at now and show them what i want. and I forgot the elbow, would it be the same # for my year car?
thanks

Yes, the coolant elbows will be the same. Get both...not just one.

The radiator does have a drain, although it is well hidden. It'* on the bottom of the radiator, driver'* side. It looks a lot like a plastic bolt. With the wiring and shielding in the area, it is hard to see.
