The yellow coolant passage o-rings aren't a PAIR. They're sold seperately, and you need 2.

Guys,
These are the prices I got from the dealer (Cdn$).

- GM Supercharger oil Qty 2 - $9 each
- Tube of GM Gasket maker - $24
- Fuel Injector 0-rings pt # AC Delco #217-1379 or GM # 1711 3544 ( how many? ) - $30 for kit
- Throttle Body Gasket. - $7.90
- 1 pair of Supercharger yellow coolant passage O- Rings, Qty 2 - $30/kit
- Intake manifold gaskets. Not priced yet

- Valve cover gaskets $29.20

Are these prices reasonable? They seem awfully high.

Thanks

Mmm, I'm having an issue with a Felpro SC outlet gasket right now leaving a gap between the wastegate and two cavities in the underside of the SC. Had the same problem with the old gasket, which I believe was an OEM gasket, but Bill checked out a spare OEM gasket and it was fine.

Gentlemen,
Frank is out of town again and asked me to order these parts. However, when I called the dealership they now priced out the throttle body gasket at $62.25 rather than the original $7.90 they quoted me. Am I missing something? I believe one of these quotes is incorrect and I assume it'* the higher one since willwren said $7.90 was a good price. Was it too good a price?

Your input would be really appreciated since I'd like to pick up the parts later today if possible.


Cathy

i don't know if it'* any different from the series 1 to series 2, but when i went to order my valve cover gaskets, they told me 20-30 bucks for a 3.8 */c, then i had him double check that it was for a supercharged 3.8 and the guy was like oh... and it ended up beign like 60 bucks for the pair, and they were fel-pros.

Cathy, I can buy 10 of them for that price (I get good pricing). If you pay over 15, they're hosing you. It'* a paper filter. Not gold-plated.

vptruman, there is no difference in valve covers or gaskets between supercharged an non-supercharged 3800'* of the same gen.
