So i got my EBAY FMIC that a ton of people gave me shit about. All said and done it took a little under 2 hours between beer and piss breaks. Yes I do know that there is a dent in the top row.....i dont want to talk about it.....It does feel a whole lot different when driving, in a good way. The fit was pretty much like it was supposed to be on the car in the first place, which I know thats what direct replacement means but it was just surprising. I figured I would have to hack a bunch of stuff. Thanks to timmy (chevytech) and ben the tool bitch for helping me put it in.

Can I ask why???
yeah, me too. I took my bumper off and saw how bad the fins on the radiator are. I'm all set. Even though it isnt complete fin protection it is some and i'm ok with that.

thanks sphipps

Yeah a lot of people say that. I figured I would reserve the cocky 4 cyl plate until after the big hair dryer.

I was thinking about painting it black but whats the point everyone can hear me from a mile away so what is there to hide? Plus people stare in their rear view at how shiny it is and they end up drifting into another lane, which works out for me.

mine had a very similar dent on the top, they didn't pack it very well.

whatever you win some you lose some and it seems like I lose a lot with this POS but I have faith to reverse the curse!!!

I want to order one I'm just a little neglectant.
I hear that some of these ebay cores give no gains or even worse than stock. Thats what I hear anyways. I don't want to waste my money until I know it's proven. Thats why I need someone like to jump on the dyno and get some numbers.:thumbsup:

Dude you can come to my house and I will swap the stock one back on then swap for the big one and take you for a ride both ways the thing is a whole new animal. I mean this isnt a 400 HP increase but it is deff. noticeable and well worth ot if you have big plans on a budget like myself

Or you can read through here to see other peoples opinions when I posted it up. I highly recommend it whats the worst that could happen, you have crappy or no gains and you got to wrench on your car and learn some stuff about it? Its only 250 bucks man
