So, I'm the FNG. New to the W-Body platform, but a life-long GM owner. I recently purchased 03 Monte SS that is knocking. I have 2 general questions, and if both questions have been covered, I sincerely apologize, but I've noticed that W-body members seem to be pretty friendly folk
1) Should I pull the engine/ transmission topside, or drop the cradle?
2) With the new motor, what would be the "must change" items on my "new" used 3.8 (w/189k on it) beyond the intake manifold gaskets?
Thank you for any/ all support, and I can't wait to get her on the road!-Blake
