The intake is different on the '01, so you'll have to transfer everything over from the blown engine. I'm not sure if everything would match up. It'll be easier to pull the entire engine/intake from a '04-up instead, I would go to car-part.com and start searching.i found an 01 wrecked one that still runs and drive for $700 that one won't work?
My daughter has an 04 and I changed the oil in it today. When I took off the filter on her car, it too came off with no effort. Is there an issue on the Vulcan engines where the oil filters loosen on their own. We just bought the car 2 months ago and this is the first oil change I've done on it, because the oil was clean.I changed out the cam syncro today and it helped out but didn't fix it, so i figured i'd put some oil additive in it and change the oil and when i went to pull off the oil filter i noticed it was loose i didn't even have to use any effort what so ever to spin it off. I went ahead and changed the oil and put in some lucas and it is better now but still making some valvetrain noises. I figure the valvetrain is probably screwed but it's driveable the way it is. Any other suggestions are appreciated.
