    Re: 99 STS Project

    Thank you Joe. I may want to talk to you in a little while regarding distributorship information. I need to fix the shipping issues and nothing- NOTHING will beat the speed of shipping within the same state. The customers and people on these forums who have stuck with me and shown me respect are my first pick for distributor opportunities, I hope I can make a difference in the Caddy world and show respect and gratitude in exchange. Face it, dealerships are not saving these cars from the scrap yard - it's all of the independent guys who have lower overhead and pay attention to detail; who are keeping these cars on the road where they belong. We have to work together. Dealerships help too; but according to book times and $100+/hr, it's just not worth it to many customers.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Major score at pick a part,I got two really nice exhaust cams and 20 nice lifters for $44 out the door. Wife is very very happy. Looked at 2 SLS that said they had bad engines, took left side valve cover off and the lifters were really bad. Came across a really nice 99 Deville, sticker on the side said good engine so i took the left valve cover off and was like score. This Deville had drivers and pass air bags deployed, deer hide in the headlight opening really nice car i would give it a 10 in the sweet ride catogory. Someone really took good care of it. Would have liked to take the whole engine but it is 10 out and i just dont like the idea of laying under a car with welded rims for jack stads and also the time.

    just taking the heads probably would have been enough and been a bit easier on the install side of things too... but either way good score!

    Re: 99 STS Project

    I can seem to find the half case and oil pan TSB if someone could help me out. I have searched all over the site. I am probably just missing something but i cant seem to find it and I think I got it from the search once before.
    Thanks, Joe

    Re: 99 STS Project

    who makes a good motor mount for a 99 STS I need the front and rear mounts, I see about every one has them but I would like some input on witch ones too stay away from if any and what ones have lasted. Should I only use GM mounts??
    Thanks, Joe

    Re: 99 STS Project

    No problem... the front is the one that get's most of the abuse from the engine torque (i think)
