We’ve all been there before, you go into a parts house and you ask the pimply-faced kid behind the counter for a part. You might as well tell him you need a muffler bearing, because he doesn’t know what that is either. When you tell him you need a MAP Sensor for your 1995 Chevrolet Camaro, he tries to tell you that they didn’t have a navigation system on that car. You shake your head and walk out, because you wish you could just get behind the counter and look up your own parts.
Well, your wish is coming true, because the guys at Pace Performance now have an interactive parts catalog that allows you to look up your own parts for your car. They have both an OE catalog interface for many GM vehicles, or an aftermarket catalog for dozens of manufacturers.
The catalog allows you to get many OE part numbers for both sheet metal and mechanical, and to check stock on many aftermarket parts and brands as well. Once you get your part numbers, you can order your parts directly from Pace Performance and they can ship them out to you within a couple of days.
Where something like this really comes in handy for many of us, is that you can find out the cost of some parts right from home, which helps you to plan on which parts you can order now, and which will have to wait until payday. There’s nothing more frustrating than waiting in line at a parts store only to have someone try to tell you that there’s no such thing as a ’65 Buick Wildcat, especially when you have one parked outside. Take a look at their web site, and log into the catalog – the username and password are right there for you.
