    Radiator support definitely was moved in the hit. What is blocking off the secondary air tube in the pic?

    In the underhood pic that your posted -- the coupler between the MAF and the throttle body is kinked and out of place. On the front of the passenger side header (at least it looks like a header) the mount for the secondary air tube is plugged with something. Looks like the system has been removed, which is not a problem, but the hole in the header is generally capped with a block off plate that bolts in place.

    I need a good cheap place for body parts. Any suggestions? Anything within a couple hours of Charlotte, NC? Ive started calling salvage yards, but no luck so far on anyone having what I need.

    Thanks, i'll call them tomorrow. Hawks third gen has everything I need 350 for the nose, 75 for the bumper filler 75 for the support and another 350 for the headlight assembly which is crazy. I found the nose on ebay paint ready WITH the spoiler/ground effect for 400 shipped and the support for 40 shipped.

    Some of the best deals will be on the forums. Check the for sale sections, ppl are parting out all the time for one reason or another...

    Dissregard all the crap I posted. The guy backed out of the deal. We were supposed to trade even. My 2001 volvo s80 t6 twin turbo executive edition in excellent condition for the ws6. Instead I AM trading this weekend for a 1998 standard black trans am with automatic. perfect body, but now I need to invest in a ram air hood and MANY interior pieces. I now need seats, dash pad, power window motors and headliner (t-top).

    look at VFN for what is called a WSQ hood....


    it is by far the most sexiest hood out there IMHO....



    If you get it welcome to the 98' club.....

    My first LS1 was a 98 with 198k miles when I sold it and she still ran like a champ! Smoked em through second gear without a problem

    Now the guy with the ws6 wants to trade all of a sudden. So now, my choice to make is, do I take the 01 ws6 6spd with 63k miles, or this black 98 auto with 125k miles?!?!?!?!? either way, sunday I will have one or the other. my gf says the black one thinking the interior will cost less to replace and can be done over time as opposed to the ws6's body work needing done quickly. posting picks of the 98 now. . . . . .

    '98s do have one year only PCM's and a temp gauge that actually works. '01 will not have an EGR setup, and the temp gauge is an estimator at best.
