Thanks! :thumbsup:

I'm glad it all worked good. What rear end ratio did you settle on?

It's miles away from Titanium Shadow trim but I wasn't trying to duplicate shadow trim. This is a lot darker but it still has some of the red undertones. It's closer to a steel gray.


Thanks!...

I left the 3.38 from the auto in when I did my conversion. I might like the 3.07 or 3.15 but I really do like the grunt that the 3.38 gives you when you step on it. At 60 mph I'm right at about 2,300...

Interesting exchange. I know exactly where he pulled the sheriff over too. It's just as you enter Soap Lake from the South going into town. That was amusing.
