    Thanks! I've always heard good things about Timken, so that's what I was assuming would be a good budget-friendly option.

    Interesting, I'm not showing that. Mine is only giving me Timken fronts for $66/ and rears for $78/. Unless I'm reading it wrong, and they're sold in pairs?

    Also, for me being an idiot. For some reason, Fel-Pro doesn't make a 'whole engine gasket kit' for these, so, I'm taking HST9957PT2 and adding some more things to it, instead of the one I posted earlier. It's even $101 (instead of $153) on wholesaler closeout! And, of course, the headbolts as well (Fel-Pro ES72892). It looks like I'll need to throw in an oil pan gasket, timing cover gasket (and seal?), and crankshaft/rear main seal, to get all the same seals (there's a few pictures on the Mahle kit that I can't figure out what they are, but, hopefully if it's something we need, the local parts store will have it close & reasonably priced). That gets me the better Fel-Pro gaskets, with at least most everything else we should need, for not much more money than the Mahle set itself. I'm also going to do a 160 degree thermostat (and seal), new radiator hoses, the dummy distributor cap o-ring, and a transmission fluid filter/pan gasket, to get that side of things fresh too. I'm sure

    As always, many thanks to Daniel and a whole slew of supporting-members for making working on this car exponentially easier and, therefore, removing just a little bit of stress from my life.

    Hey all,

    Quick question: We are looking at getting our gauge setup together, and wondering what we might be able to pull out of the OBD2 port on the '96. I am just assuming not much, but, if the information is there, would probably be easier/cleaner to try to run a screen or something from there, instead of individual gauges for everything. We are looking at Temps for Coolant, Oil, and Trans Fluid, as well as Oil Pressure and Voltage. I have a setup that does that in my Trailblazer, which I'm going to try to remember to grab (it's at my sister's house), but, I am assuming it won't work, as I believe the TB (2004) is a CAN-bus system.

    If you have a mid grade OBD2 scanner, you can look in it and see what information is available. I have a TopDon Elite, and it lets me view the available sources, coolant temp, STFT, LTFT, O2 Status, etc. If you can view it there, you should be able to put together a cluster of some sort.

    ODB2 has a lot of info you can pull. Mine is just the odb1 which doesn't have much info and even when the car isn't running right hasn't even triggered an error. With ODB2 you should be able to get an old tablet of some kind and connect it to the odb2 port. There are a number of apps that will let use the tablet as a custom gauge cluster where you can put whatever gauges you want. Either use it to replace the existing one or as a supplemental one.
