Aside from classifieds, does anyone recommend a place that sells it for a good price?

If you are implying I used armorall on my engine--I didn't. I've never used armorall in my life. I use just degrease, soap, and water.

OLD.....

New......


And the old LS1 since we are talking about engine pictures....I think this completes the sports car, sports sedan, and muscle car.

There's nothing to see here, it's just stock. Although, I did just dust the pollen off.

Cool! My intent for this thread was not at all to "see anything." In fact, I'm more impressed with stock engine bays than those that have add-ons, CF this and that (Unless factory option)

I wanted a look at peoples personalities here. Kind of like attaching a face to a name sort of thing.

The thread is titled "Post your engine pics!" so technically, carcus posting a picture of his Carrera's engine is following the rules more than you posting a picture of your parents' car's engine.
