Default Wow

I have to repost about the new motor. It'* freaking unbelievable. All the cars I have ever owned have been V-8'*.... of course it'* all subjective, but it seems to me like this motor has at least as much pep as any of them (Well, except the 442).

Gas mileage is much improved, and I can't tell ya how nice it is to look at the dash and see the O.P obove 40 (actually it runs about 60 on the highway, 40-50 at hot idle).

One thing - the mechanic says the oil pan didn't have a place for the oi level sensor. WHich is fine, I wanna get one of those fancy aluminum pans ya' all talk about anyway like there was a contact in here that had a few to get rid of... anyone remember who?

Thx
Matt

Fancy shmancy oil pan.

Get the pan, and oil filter adapter. Then order the pickup tube from your local dealer.

Off to my P&B thread..see if I have the part number on the tube.

Do NOT waste your money or time on that.
