    We are in the market for a 92-96 C4 Vert w/Auto and FX3. I came across the vehicle in the photo, but am wondering if these 5 spokes were an option for the 40th, or should it have the sawbalde wheels for correctness? ...just a point I might be able to use to work the deal more in my favor...

    Can't get oil pan back on

    I started my oil pan swap out on the LS4... bought a new pan from Corvette Central. Everything looks identical, but when we try to install the new one... the pan will not clear the oil pump and pickup. It's strange since the old pan came off so easily. Anyone with ideas? Thanks!
