    Thanks all, especially you Moistcabbage. I'm sure that your all entailing response will help many more members as well. I mean, every spectrum was covered. Can't be upset about that. Each one teach one... Group hug, no. Group fist bump, yes. Love this site. Best Caddy site I've visited. All entailing by definition. Excellent work gentlemen!!!

    Not all GM parts are created equal. See here.

    thanks for that link eric ... I often will try and make the distinctions listed on that page for people but it's much easier to just point them to the link

    My 2000 is F45 with FE1. A lot of 98-00's I looked at (when compnine was free) had F45/FE1 combinations.
