    I would say yes, I did get a good deal on it with 50k in the clock because it had a bunch of pidly things going on. It was someone's daily driver that never washed it. It took a while to clear all them up. It is running just over 200 on the temp gage so I'll need a radiator and t-stat in the spring

    Not to bad then. I'm almost at 50k now on my '03 ZO6 and so far all I've had is the brake module and air valve. Hoping for long life, it's my daily driver. Congrats on the 100k

    Brake module?
    I replaced it!
    The one that I took off had a Hollander number on it just like my radio, IPC, radiator, condenser and who knows what else.
    I did install C-6 shocks last year and WOW what a difference!
    The driver's window up switch takes more pressure to activate than normal
    I believe it's time for torque tube couplings also, was hoping for a 3:42 ratio rear end swap at the and time

    Yes but it is running hotter than last year.
    Cleaned out the condenser and radiator fins and checked the lower air dam so far

    Due to the supercharger; I'm running a 160F thermostat. The intercooler blocks air flow to the radiator. So far, the worst I've seen was a bit above 200 in over 100F in traffic.
    Whoosh, and blur
