Hmm heat like what a TVS produces? The below graph was prepared by Harrop's and for the Yanks that 197.5 works out to 387 degrees. A TVS kit is $3300 US and yes it carries a warranty. You want to spend your money on it, no problem. The Cobalt M62 is an older generation Eaton and majority you find are going to be used although there were some Dealer Stock units that sold a couple months ago for around $900 US. I recently bought a spare for $250 that had 80k miles on it but sold it as I found another spare with only 30k miles for $250 US, I will be able to sell the pulley case gearbox, the bpv actuator and the throttle body to the Cobalt guys for a couple of hundred dollars.
So Bixby or Scott or whatever you name is, spend your money the way you want and let others decide how much money they want to spend on a car more than 14 years old . . . .

well damn all I did was answer a guys question as to why most tuners don’t like the m62 . Heat and lack of support. I never brought up cost because the tuner wouldn’t care about what you paid for your stuff plus what tuner wants to work with outdated parts . I would think most tuners would want to get the most out of the cars they have there name tided too . Both in Performance and longevity . Now if a car owner is willing to lose a bit of performance in the name of budget that’s fully understandable. To claim it just as good or to say it’s just about the same isn’t true.My engine did not blow, sorry.
