    But if it wasn't for junk yards, discontinued parts couldn't be found.

    Oh Yeah gmcTrucks., it's a personal thing I guess. I put mine in 5 years ago and it still takes 5 gts. & a Borch Filter Never a single drop of oil in a leak so far ?

    Not bad you can’t go wrong with that and I can tell you have nothing but the best on your fine looking trucks.

    Hay gmctrucks, I went with jasper because they sell you a fully remanufactured engine. Every bearing, even new crankshaft bolts, even things' like new rods. You just bolt it in, put on your manifold and button it up and your done. Silverado starts like a new engine and there's not a tic or tap or leak. It's been that way four the last 5 years or so. and the 3 yr warranty is very attractive. They ship it to you in a big gray plastic crate, take your new motor out, put the old one in and they have it picked up. Even if you want a "other than stock" a different cam or different heads or otherwise, it's you give them your spec's and they'll build it for you . One and done !
