You might enjoy the low prices of the after market parts, but if you knew the performance difference you would enjoy knowing that you didn't get a cheap job but one that did help to improve it!
it's things like belts, hoses, tstat, rubber boots, buttons, water pump, fan bearing, ect

sorry but I'm not paying $45 for a Tstat that I can get a brand name Gates for $10
