    The car rolled 100K about a month ago, sitting right around 101,500 miles right now. I put new tires on the 19s;...

    Many years ago I was looking for one of the factory air dams and couldn't find one. I ended up having a local fab shop bend me one out of aluminum, but I never installed it (was intended for the red...

    This is critical advice.

    Roller cam = steel gear

    Flat tappet = iron

    There are also composite and bronze gears available, but they are usually race spec only.

    Just updating some threads and wanted to add some newer pictures.

    The GM has been a great car for me, just turned over 92,000 miles. The exhaust is still too loud, but I like it just the same.

    I did the Dorman swap on my '08 car, but did not have it long thereafter, so I can't speak to the longevity of those parts.
