  1. It's actually $1.79 The one I got is made of some type of concentrated paper, not rubber.
  2. I'd say the 110 is a better looking car. I don't see the purpose to a top speed like that other than braging rights. I'd be much more concerned with the 0-60 time and acceleration of the car. I'd be more likely to get struck by lightening than see the Veyron, but there is a fellow nearby who owns a Gulf Gas station that has an H1 Hummer, Noble M12 and 360 Modena. I've actually seen three seperate 360's all within the same 30 foot area of this major road in town, so I suppose it's a fairly common car, also heavily produced as well. But my god does the 360 sound great. I guess that's what you get from an extremely well performing V8.
  3. I think I found what you're referring to there blue_eldo. Click the link below please... http://www.autozone.com/R,NONAPP22758/stor...oductDetail.htm It can't really be $18 for a piece of rubber though, can it?
  4. Sounds good Mike, Thanks again.
  5. Are they generally the same size all across the board. What I mean is, do you think VIP, Autozone, Pepboys or NAPA would have it?
  6. When I was working on the FPR yesterday I broke this little rubber ring that wraps around the air intake (?) on the engine. It was pretty brittle so i'm not surprised it broke, but I would like to get a new one. What's it called? Here's a picture of what I'm talking about. Thanks
  7. Well guys, here's what I did. I just spent about four hours working on it and I didn't accomplish much. I attribute that to the fact that I'm not too good with cars, but after a while I think that anyone who spent the amount of time I spent working on this particular piece will become an expert on it The screw I'm working on removing is a Torx T30 size screw. I went to Home Depot, Sears and AceHardware and they all have the same hardened steel screwdriver. Those don't bend, FYI, they snap, haha. So after looking at my situation for a few moments I got pretty frustrated and went down to the basement and retrieved my grandfathers old, and I mean OLD drill. It smells like a World War Two ship when it's running, haha. I drilled out that Torx screw so now it's almost not there. Almost is a key word because what is left is being a *smurf* and holding the FPR in...tight. As of now I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Maybe it was a bad idea to drill out that screw because it looks like it hold it in place. I just want to get out that FPR now and get in the new one and take it from there. I'll get the job done tomorrow, more info then!
  8. Mike, he is talking about a 4.9. Yes, I was referring to the FPR (Fuel Pressure Regulator) If someone has a service manual for my Seville/Engine maybe they can tell me the tool they use to remove it, because it must be something special to fit in there. Like I stated, I tried bending a Torx wrench that I knew fit and it shattered after I bent it about 90 degrees. Maybe an angled Torx screw diver would do the job, but they are only slightly angled, not angled in a "U" Shape (300+ degrees) like I would need for this job.
  9. Well, I just spent about two hours working on the darn thing and I'm not better of than if I sat watching TV. The space down there is so small I can hardly get my finger in there, let a lone a screw driver. I took a piece of play dough and managed to press it against the screw to determine it is indeed a Torx screw. I had a Torx screw driver that fit so I was bending it so I could fit it in there when it snapped in two at about 90 degrees. How the heck do the GMC technicians remove the darn screw? I'd hate to have to bring it in to have a screw removed, especially since I know how to do everything else.
  10. Yeah, we were looking to remove the fuel pipes there, but that seemed a bit too excessive to simply remove the FPR. So you just bent it upwards and then unscrewed it?
  11. I've lent out the Blazer to friends a few times who needed to move stuff around. That car's got so many problems now though that I really don't give a darn if they drive it hard because the life left on it is short to none. The Caddy...no. I've let people drive it, but only when I'm in the passanger seat.
  12. Hey Guys, I'm working on replacing my FPR because I think it may have something to do with my poor gas mileage. I've been working on removing the old one from the car but it isn't so simple. There is a double screw (bolt on top and underneath) that holds the FPR in place, and the one underneath is almost impossible to remove without some type of very special tool which I suppose must exist. Can anyone give me some info on how to remove the FPR on a 1993 4.9L Seville? Thanks, Marcus It's the screw located underneath the area inside the red circle
  13. I'm getting into this project tomorrow. I went to my regular yard today and the one Seville with fog lights was smashed and no good, so I'm going to this huge place tomorrow. It's a bit of a drive so I'm going early and giving myself about two hours to do this. I'd like to get this all done in one trip. Here's what I need to know, hopefully someone here has some knowledge of the wiring and bumper for a Seville STS 1. The STS front bumper for a '92-'97 will fit on a SLS from '92-'97, correct? 2. How do I remove the underneath part of the front bumper? 3. As far as the wiring goes, can I remove it from the Seville and install it in mine? 4. The fog light control piece on the dash, how do I remove that and put it in my car? 5. What Should I be looking at spending for the front underneath part of the bumper? Thanks a ton guys!
  14. No, Unfortunately, I don't have the V1, I couldn't afford it, haha. I have a Beltronics Vector 940, an entry level upper class Radar Detector. Jeff, there is a large piece of gray plastic that covers the area that i think you're referring to, right where my shin's are. Do I remove that to find those wire's?
  15. Alright, so I looked at it again today and I'm even more confused. What's the best or easiest way to wire this thing in, because I don't like driving without a Radar Detector.
