Great job man! Welcome to the F-body family! I like the v-6 just as much as v-8 nice choice, nice car. upload some pics on ur profile at some point so i can see your awesome new ride!
And about your temp guage fluctuating, It could have a 160 degree thermo put in it and when you start driving air goes underneath the car hits that long black thing (as you would describe it) and goes up into the engine and cools it back down. At idle (Unless the fans are on) The temperature will go up 10-20 degree's thats normal. Happens to me everyday.
I dont have a favorite parts store but i bought my windshield wipers at o reillys. I belive i spent 25.00 for both NEW. So that wasnt to bad in my opinion. I just bought them a few weeks ago too. Strange how windshield wipers are a pain to get off and on lol
And not all cars show your oil psi. These do. So i would imagine that when you hit the gas your oil pressure goes up, and when you let off your oil pressure goes back down. that's normal. (As long as it doesnt get in that red) And im sure when you cold start it that your oil pressure is very high, that's okay as well. If you want to make sure its accurate grab an oil psi guage and check it out, or just leave it alone.
And about the cam, cold air intake and exhaust part, I agree 100% with steveo, you will like that car alot more with a few mods. Seveo know's his stuff.
And feel free to throw any questions you have on here. Im 105% sure any body will be very happy to assist you in any way they can.
