Morels here as well. Can't recall the part number, they make several LS versions now that they didn't when I bought mine. Morels are designed to sit lower in the bore due to the smaller base circle...

Steering lines are more accessible through the driver's side wheel well. I always just get the o-rings that Bill mentioned and replace them. They are only a couple of bucks.

Yep, Dorman is crap.

As just one example, put a Dorman rebuilt front driveshaft in my daughter's Jeep. It failed one year and one day later. Dorman was useless. Found a USA made part that was...

Never on the Corvette. There is a lot of thread engagement with the stock setup. With my aftermarket setup, I made sure I had a long thread engagement as well.

Better, IMO. They use a woven material rather than mat so the thickness is consistent. Also, they don't bleed the rubber into the filter area so for a given filter size the actual filter available...

Copper NGK's here as well. I also run the LS7 wires because of the bend at the end that fits better with headers. Had MSD, hated them and went with the GM performance.

I don't think it sounds like lifters, the sound is too "constant" with engine rotation. Is it louder from under the car, like near the clutch and torque tube?

ATI is also fully rebuildable. The hub and balancer parts are separate.
