Correct, it's not an exact corvette motor, but it has the same basic bones. There is a 2 door Caddy out there that is basically a corvette, but I think it's a lot newer. XLR I think ...

CTS is a 4 door and those 2door ones with the HUGE arse are not corvettes. the XLR is a CaddyVette, but I know CHEVY likes to pull all parts from the same bins, so there may be some crossover pieces from Vette to CTS, but not many.

Good Eye PoBoi, yeah, noticed that too, I believe my lowering block is out of line, off its peg. I noticed it when I took this pic and then measured it. I will reset it on my next day off. The passenger side IS centered. Thanks

She decided to keep going, 2 miles, now so much compression blows through the cooling system, it blew a plastic "T" apart near the resevoir tank. BTW, I have visited Caddy forums recently and compared to INFAMOUS NISSAN, they suck. No place like home, Toto, no place like home, we are not in Kansas anymore.
That's for sure. At least members of IN try to help you...even if some of the answers (like that sci fi guy's) are full of crap, or mostly old-school approaches.

Prior to joining IN, I was on this competing Nissan forum I won't name. I would ask a question and check back the next day. NOTHING. The next week...still nothing. I got the hell out of there and never looked back.

Now you see how you got saddled with me...

damn the image is huge on my screen tf
I broke the tags so the image would not load.

If you want the image smaller, take that last part [owYY28P.jpg] and write it with an 'h' for Huge, like [owYY28Ph.jpg], or an 'l' for Large, like [owYY28Pl.jpg].

Debating if I want to rebuild my dual piston calipers or use them as cores, while I get a clip and other small parts order together.

Not cool to install new park light assemblies into old plastic and have the clips break.

Advance has the calipers new, not remanufactured for cheap. I got mine after discounts for about $65. The core on the new ones were only $7 apiece.
