I used 14 gauge wire for the speakers, but 16 gauge should be just fine. I like overkill. :D

You can use an EFX 9-Wire bundle for the speaker signal. No reason to worry about what you feed to the...

Sometimes even an exhaust leak can sound like a lifter tick. Clickity tickity tick.... My headers were leaking all over and once they were fixed the clicking stopped. :)

You're not wrong about that for sure. The process had me fussing like the psychotically obsessed when it came to matching the angle as precisely as possible. That said, I found it to be less...

I may be one of the only 2 people with this opinion, but ARP bolts aren't appropriate for normal DOD Deletes and non FI motors like this.

I got the replacements for both since mine are faded. Too much sun. No garage....

The front has alignment stubs (pins, dowels, whatever you wanna call them). Should not be a big deal replacing...

Sort of why I posted the same. That said, I may have to retract it if I find out it is from somewhere else, because I haven't identified exactly where it is coming from.

GXP25, I would say very little if any. The only thing I noticed after the cradle and differential bushings were replaced with those Superpros was mostly noise related. I'd hear the differential clunk...

Well, sounds like it's not that clunk, then. You gotta get under the car and have a look. (OR pay someone else to do it).

That is the differential. A little bit of slippage; usually during transient throttle situations when you let off and press the gas pedal lightly.

The rubber bushings absorbed more of the noise,...

Sometimes it just takes time, I guess. As I noted before, the AcDelco sensors are Denso, just a different part #.

Let us know what you find.

Yeah, that's my hypothesis. Though, it seemed to take a while, and I did a couple other things (went back to a 187F Thermostat from the 180F), fixed what appeared to be a leak or two....

Gopherit asked earlier about the fault code. I didn't see a response on that so assume you missed it.

That would help immensely.

ACDelco sensors are Denso sensors. If you keep replacing O2 sensors and keep having problems, it isn't the sensor.

It's definitely more costly to repair if you go after the condenser, but the condenser is easy to replace.

It was a third of ther current cost when it happened to me, though. The price of the...
