Finally stopped raining. Freeze advisory for tonight. Just a week ago it was 95F.

Anyone ever play Far Cry 5? Since the weather has been shitty I have been playing a bit in the evenings and am hooked.

Started raining today, sucks cuz now getting the roof finished is put off till it stops. I need to get up there and inspect the parts they have done, the top sheet was scratched really bad down to the tin but I don't see it set to the side. Hopefully they just took it back instead of using it like I told them not to.

Congrats. Would have been a shame to do all that work for an M62.

Needle bearings are a bitch to replace btw. Slid hammer did not have enough mass to bust mine loose. Had to rig up a power-screw to pull my old casings out. Of course installing the new bearings was also nerve-racking.

Royce- I wish you lots of luck on selling the car. Mine is black and about the same as everything else as yours and I am "hoping" to get $7,000 for it. Maybe if you get close to asking I can feel more positive about asking more for mine at some point.
Note- this is not a feeler or actual for sale post. Don't want to get in trouble again. Simply a comment.

HGT, don't know where you decided to inject but ZZP makes a 1/2" spacer plate that has 2 nozzle ports for injecting directly below the rotors. I think you have phenolic spacer as well so I would also recommend ZZP's adjustable tensioner pulley setup to give you more flexibility with belts. From https://www.cobaltss.net/forums/2-0l...rs-lsj-318187/ this comes in handy as well.
All are 6 rib double side belts with a 20mm width.

Ac Delco #12585151-71.25in(1809.75mm) stock
Ac Delco #12597993-69.56in(1767mm) stage 2. Those are best answers to length we found

Dayco #6060792- 70.19in(1782.82mm). Stock replacement

Gates DK060472- 48.5in(1233mm)
Gates DK060519- 53in(1348mm)
Gates DK060650- 66.125in(1680mm)
Gates DK060674- 68.5in(1741mm) closet to stg 2
Gates DK060702- 71.25in(1811mm) stock replacement
Gates DK060718- 73in(1853mm)
Gates DK060725- 73.75(1872mm)
Gates DK060729- 74.25(1885mm)
Gates DK060791- 80.375(2043mm)
Gates DK060867- 87.875(2232mm)
Gates DK060956- 95.75(2432mm)
Gates DK060973- 98.625(2504mm)

Are you going to try that with stock redline or you going to do BS delete and head work?

Honestly probably wont even replace the car with another toy. Trying to focus on my education and career now. Graduate school keeps me busy enough, no time for toys now. The market is so inflated with beat up destroyed LNFs that sell for 5-7g that everyone thinks the clean low mile ones are worth that.

I know the car is very low miles but I think you would be better to keep looking for another option. I know the car needed some work to get it back to factory. But it might be better to look for an LNF

Don't sell that low, I know the market makes it hard but its worth more than that. I mean yours is stupid clean, nicely modded, and pretty low mileage. All of these part outs and junk sales will go away and then all that will be left is the clean cars.
