Yes, injector replacement is stunningly expensive from what I hear.
I believe on my year Duramax (LB7 engine) the heads have to come off to replace the injectors, resulting in over $3,000 for the job. On the 04 and newer LLY engine I think not.

That's about what Harry told me he paid to replace the injectors on his '02.

Yep do some googling and you would be amazed at some of the things they have tried back in the 20's and 30's...

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Owsley Stanley's truck found.



"......this Studebaker 2R15 allegedly gained its notoriety when the Grateful Dead’s financial backer, landlord, sound man, and supplier of LSD, Owsley Stanley, bought the machine to haul his custom-made sound gear back and forth to the band’s gigs."

From HERE....

First thing I would have done?

Look for anything left under the seat.

I've always liked the look of those pickups. I bought one new in '91 and only had it 6 months. Should've known better than to get the 2.5L 4-banger. Are those T/A GTA rims? Looks sweet- Like ADK curious what's under the hood- cool truck.
