    Thank you! I can't wait until 2:00 today. The day is flying by but these ringing phones go on minute after minute and all I can think of is hearing that car fire up!!!!!!!!

    Fuzion--Thanks man!

    Aaron--I will. I thought of that last night, I will get a video if she runs. There will only be an H-pipe on it though. I don't know if I'll have time to install the catback or not depending on the differences between the 81 body and the 2001 tailpipes.

    Thanks man. It has been a long road.

    None of the oxygen sensors are long enough to plug in, I don't know why......everything is stock. I don't have an air filter on it, and no catback either. I am gonna finish up that tomorrow and also try and get all the jams cut in yellow on my doors, body, and trunk. If she runs smoother tomorrow with all the correct parts, I will post another vid!!

    I have to give you a big :nice: for this one! I don't want to alarm you, but it appears you're going extremely fast after looking at your speedometer. :p

    :D Yeah she was stuck at 150, then 120, I knocked on it and it's back to 150. WTF? The car has a Speed Cal. I hooked it back up exactly how I took it aprart, I think it was only 1 wire. So I don't know what the deal is with that. I will have to drive it and see if it will come back. I can't move it yet....yeah....I spent 240 bucks having this shop make me a new driveshaft. The tube is shorter, by 1/2" and the yoke is shorter by 1" and it is still too long!!:rolleyes: :mad: That really upset me. Now I have to send it back on Monday. And I had them guys come over and take measurements..WTF??? Anyways....more progress to come tomorrow.

    :lol: Thanks 25th!! Now I must decide after paint...5.0 badges? 4.6 badges? No badges? Or I might have my friend make a really sweet question mark to put on each fender.

    She sounded like a big block with a huge cam tonight.:D I can't wait to see what it sounds like with the cat-back. Hopefully all goes well tomorrow and I can get it to idle like the stock 4.6L it is.
