Lucas Oil, I've heard a lot of stories about it. I was going to put some in my old '98 200cc dirt bike, but something in the trans blew so yeah haven't got the opportunity to try lol But like is it good? Like would it be good just to put some in my impala, just for the sake of it?

Anyone know where I can find one of those rubber trunk mats that say impala on them or have the impala logo on them?? I'm kinda tired of the crappy stock carpet trunk mat.

Its just really thick, not a good thing, but it does tend to make things sound quieter...

My `91 caprice 350 motor Idles at 2000 rpm. Someone told me this is normal for a motor this size, i don't believe him though. I think this is a problem and too high. Thought it should be 600-800.

Does anybody actually know what my rpms should be?

is it true that addin an exhaust to your car adds HP to your car or is that an old wives tale?

Around 1000 is ok for idle in park or neutral, you are supposed to set the idle in drive though, should be about 600 or so.
