My other car is a 2011 turbo Regal and I need to replace the vacuum/boost lines that go from the turbo and wastegate to a solenoid. It looks like regular vacuum hose but there is a red core to it. Does anyone know what makes that different and where I could find a source for it, of course I only need a few inches.

It is shown in this picture:

So here is my post from 2014, where I shared pictures of my cross member idea.
See post #70.

And here are pictures from the DSE Facebook post from 2016.

I'm thinking the main part that separates these 2 cross members from all the ohers is that they both relocated the mounting location back a few inches instead of making a huge lever off of the factory location. I know I've seen a few T56 cross members that have double humps for the exhaust so that isn't anything new and they made a more elegant arc, (which they better, mine is ugly) so I'm not going to complain there. But if that is a C channel they used it will collect a bunch of debris!

If they did copy me I'll just take it as a compliment!

As the title says, rear calipers from a 98 and up rear end. Unknown miles and condition but we're working when removed a few years ago. Includes caliper brackets, backing plates also available separately but no pics ready now.

Asking $25 plus shipping for the pair.

C4 valve covers are in ok shape, I started cleaning them but never finished. Hardware is included but the Corvette logo needs to be glued back on.

Asking $100 plus shipping.
