    Thanks, it was great news for sure. Looks like that stuff was never inside the engine anyway, and I changed the oil, so no worries.

    Thanks for the suggestions Daniel, but it all may be moot. Wanted to update on this, the first thing was that once I removed the chunks I found in the oil and let the oil drain off of them for a...

    I never said it was an '88 Corvette. The gages in it are all analog. It's just easiest to think of this as an OBD-1 LT4 engine with TPI, because the car is a hybrid of so many things that I don't...

    Best fluid for '99 T56?

    I had my tranny rebuilt, but now it has this annoying whine in 1-3 from 2k rpm+. I don't know what the shop filled it with, but is this something that the right fluid can fix, or does it need more...

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. Rebuild components are common as they're shared with all the LT motors.
