Default Starter alternative

Are you having starter issues and just can't find a good starter for cheap nearby? Do you have a bad 6th glow plug and decided to not change it until the end of the summer? is your engine worn and the stock starter is not enough for you? Do you just want a starter that spins the engine above the redline when trying to start it in -200kelvin?

Look no futher! Use a starter from a second gen straight five LT(maybe even straight4) i've got mine off of a siezed engine and its works okay. It is a direct bolt on even though the starter is upside down but that isn't a problem.

I had hard time starting the engine when it was cold but not cold enough to use the glowplugs,Which meant get out of the car unplug the sensor, then i had glowplugs for the full20seconds.(low compression causes no start)

With the new starter it starts like a dream when cold(20degrees)with only 5 glow plugs though it is kind of rough for the first couple of seconds while the 6th gets warmed up, and its starts almost instantly when hot or warmish as well.
