new pan, it was soft and rusted anyway. got it for like 40 at advance with the p20 internet discount. the stupid felpro gaskets were 48 before the discount through.

and i just broke the oil level sensor so im going into town to get another and waste another 25.

well the new pan ended up screwing me. nothing ever is easy. the ahole gm engineers put the oil pickup and the oil level sensor in the same spot. the oem pan has a slight angle to clear and the new one didnt. why they didnt put the sensor in the end by the filter is beyond me, its completely clear. where it is now you have to wait to put it on till after the pan is bolted in and then jimmy it past the frame and starter. i ended up putting a big wad of black rtv on it and cross-threading it in to hold it in place

A buddy of mine purchased an 03 GTP and wanted me to polish his exhaust tips. He noticed the ones on my GTP and really liked that so I told him I'd polish his out if he took them off for me.

The left one was in bad shape.

When I started this was covered in carbon and didn't look good at all.

I got her all pretty again.
