We (my brother and I) just ordered a set this morning too. Got the engine out of his 94 STS this weekend. What have you got and what are you doing randango ?

Anyone on these forums that would "rent" me one of the kits? I need to timesert the N* I'm rebuilding and would rather avoid paying $300 for a kit I could just as soon pay to borrow and pay for the serts myself. I'm happy to pay $75-80 + SH. anyone who would be interested please email me botboy60 at hot mail dot com.
