  1. I had my VG30 engine rebuilt and when I took it in, there were still some pieces attached like the flex plate and some of the brackets. I got it back with those items removed and cleaned along with a box of the bolts. But for the life of me, I can't figure out where this one came from... It's a thumb screw with a heads hex wrench head. And it isn't off from the plenum because that had already been removed. It's got to be off the block or the heads. Anyone have any ideas...?
  2. Thanks for the input guys. I'm just replacing the whole set of injectors so it looks like color choice doesn't matter. I took a close look at the motor mounts and although I don't think they are broken yet, there is lots of cracking on the rubber. Since the engine is already out, seems like a good time to get new mounts in there so I don't have to mess with it in another couple of thousand miles. The cost of the mounts is far less than the labor hours time it take to get them out and back in again later. One other thing I'm trying to track down... What is the easiest way to replace the connector that goes to the oil pressure sensor? The plastic connector and wire on mine broke during disassembly due to age and being soaked with oil. I'm trying to figure out whether there is a replacement connector I can splice in? Or if that is part of one of the wiring harnesses that I could replace? Any info or suggestions?
  3. I'm putting my rebuilt engine back together again and wondered if anyone had opinions on any of the following... I'm replacing the fuel injectors Any experience with the different brands? The Denso's seem to be way more expensive; are they better? If I can get blue dot or black dot (since it's a full replacement) which should I go with? Motor mounts How can you tell if the stock mounts have gone bad? If I'm going to replace, should I go with the solid or the hydraulic? Any particular brand suggestions? Thanks in advance for any advice.
