No "Blue Streak" equivalent?

Plenty of Chinese-brand solenoids on Amazon or Mexican reboxes for slightly more, or date-coded NOS for stupid money, but nothing else. Pepperidge Farm remembers when replacement parts lasted longer than 18 months.

T-Series is definitely the Standard "economy" line. We offer a few of their T-Series products at our store, which only carry a one year warranty to the traditional Standard offerings that carry a lifetime warranty.

Drove it to my girlfriends and parked it at the top of the driveway. Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be jacking it up to start unbolting the exhaust and manifolds for Kooks install

Yoinked the exhaust manifolds and cats, with luck I’ll be bolting up my Kooks headers and doing an egr delete tomorrow afternoon and fabbing a 2.5” exhaust Sunday.

Better than falling asleep under the car in the middle of a project.
