Could you get brake calipers for a decent price? I can't remember how much autozone or advance wanted, but I remember it being a lot more than I was willing to spend I only need the rears though, I have the special frozen edition 93 calipers.

Also, how about Corvette ZR1 oil filters? My local places don't seem to carry the ZR1 filter. You'd probably have to have a disclaimer on your site though, making sure people know that the part isn't made specifically for Probes and to use it at your own risk and what not.

sup matt, my buddy bought that valve cover gasket kit you sell. but after a month later, both valve cover gaskets are leaking a lot. ever have this problem before? they were installed by a qualified technician(not me) so i was wondering that it could have been bad quality products. what do you think?

Sorry to hear that,I actually never had any bad complaints, this is a first. The tech might not have looked up the correct torque settings for each bolt. This would cause unequal pressure and a possible small path for it to leak. Also if they are tightened too much he could crack the valve cover which you could use JB weld to fix. Have your friend contact me for a discounted price if he’s interested in trying out another set. I have them in stock.

suggestions....
looks like you carry mostly maintenance products which is great, especially when it's higher quality oem replacement parts. I would try to get some aftermarket stuff too though, like CAI's, headers, etc. I know there's plenty of other sites that carry this stuff and you would have to be fighting to get that end of business, but it's a big area of the probe community that you're missing out on.
I would also do more updating on the website. You have no header banner, logo or anything. Other than that, the page works great, just needs some aesthetic upgrades.

thanks for the tips. I do plan on bringing in the greddy SP2 exhaust, and possibly cold air intakes in the future. I am waiting for AEMs new dry flo filter which I will include with my CAIs.

stocking hard to find items would be sweet... like the timing belt tensioner and things of that nature... perhaps some mx6 specific parts as well... maybe some gauges... radiator hoses (silicon if u can get em) ... thats all i can think of right now

I guess I'm the only one that will address this, where are all of the I4 parts?

I saw alot of items for the V6's but only like two items for the 2.0. I would like to see some specialty items like, powder coat, I mean the raw material.

Also maybe some aftermarket items like CAI, Relocation kits. Some custom fabrications might also help make you a popular site, like mandral bent piping sections for turbo/supercharger setups.
I think what most people on this forum are looking for is a place that they can buy the pieces to the puzzle and then put it together for them selves.

Like I plan on building a supercharger setup for my 95 2.0 in the future, it sure would be nice if I had a place to go where I could pick up all the pieces instead of spending hours and hours of time trying to find the lowest cost all over the internet.

I appreciate all your input, it is very helpful on any changes I may want to do with the future. If I had the funds, I would go forward with all of your suggestions right now.

Put together a timing belt set with all tensioners, seals and a belt. You carry a few of the items already seperately. You will need to sell the water pump seperate due to various sizing.
