Anyone know what the cost is for the LIM gasket kit? Also, do you usually replace the push rods while you're at it, or just put the old ones back in? (I know you have to keep them in order if you reuse them) Lastly, are our rockers adjustable? I have a little bit of valvetrain noise and I was hoping to tighten the rockers down a quarter turn since I'll have the whole thing apart anyway.

Thanks!

PACE Performance has the parts you need for the LIM change. Just go to their site www.paceparts.com and put in the part number in their search.

I'm pretty sure our rockers are not adjustable. To get rid of the "tick" just re-torque them....if you still have the tick, live with it...it's just ****ty GM design.

I will be doing the same work soon and have done a good amount of research. Ebay also has gaskets sometimes.

[edit] Nice Camaro there.

I think the kit is $75 from the dealer... not with the bolts tho.

What is included with this "kit?" I priced out the LIM w/bolts (long and short) for $69 (and some cents) from PACE. Shipping shouldn't be too much.

When i got the "kit", it came with 4 gaskets. 2 for the upper, 2 for the lower.

I'm actually going to change my LIM gasket on Friday. A dealer near me sells the kit for 48 bucks.

What else do you need besides that kit? Valve cover gaskets, EGR gasket?? And what about a distributor plug o-ring?

Also, any recommendations on new coolant?

I just got mine done by the dealer. Here is the parts list they charged me for:

__QTY_____PART_NUMBER______DESCRIPTION____________ ___LIST_PRICE
.....1................89017279.............GASKET KI 3.270.............................$53.44
.....2................80154775.............GASKET 0.423 R..............................$14.77
.....1................10477565.............SEAL 1.639 R..................................$1.96
.....1................12345328.............COMPOUN D- 8.800...........................$7.02
.....4................12346290.............COOLANT 8.800...............................$3.45

List price is what they sold the stuff to me for. All USD. $105 in parts. Use the above as reference for part numbers and what the price SHOULD be at a GM dealer (give or take if they are not the same across country). I'm not sure what the numbers after the description name is.....
