Sorry, I have no idea on price of an alloy 5.3.... never chased one or had anyone local mentioned about one to me off hand.  You could look around on ebay a bit for a general idea at least perhaps here.

 

As for engine numbers...iron or alloy should all have the VIN number stamped in them somewhere I would say. (never looked at the 5.3 in my own truck) but they do it from the factory for all new stuff.  Suppose new crate engines would be exempt obviously at least from that.

Hi Jeff
I am going to LA next week and up to Montaray. I am after a Eaton 10 bolt posi unit. Is there a shop that would stock them close to my travels.
Thanks Paul

Can't think of any local place to grab one... I'd just order it online and have it shipped and grab it when you were in the area probably. Be the best price that way too. Check Summit, etc.

<checks pockets>  I don't seem to have a camaro on me at the moment. :D

 

 

 

 

I do have a VU SS ute over here though that's been my daily driver for a few months so far at least ! 

 

 

 

I've got a bit of just this and that to ship this batch around so far at the moment, but still looking around for a couple more things as well.

Just holler if the time comes..

 

Doesn't seem to be a ton of stuff around locally right at the moment actually (been looking for a few trucks) hopefully once all this rain stops and weather gets more back to normal people will start selling stuff again.

hey Jeff , hope your well mate

 

 just wondering what the cost of SENDING a Hatchback TO LA ?

how long would it take and what are the American customs like to deal with ?

 

I would most likely fill up the interior with bits and pieces

 

cheers
