Last time I was out with Andy, he only had a LS back there. Unless the Powertrax got done during the V8 upgrade as well.

But real glad to hear that's its done. If we actually have a meet sometime, we'll have to see how it sounds.

You gonna try and get it out to the Ice party?

Are you going to reinstall the A/C or leave it out? Looks like there's a bunch of wiring that needs to be cleaned up but otherwise it looks good.

Yeah its nice and torqy and quick.(i also had the 3.0 before but yeah haha), With the shift kit in It shifts perty hard, but i have to use it more in daily driving to figure out if its gonna be ok or if i should drop down a spring. The chirp into second is sweet though hah

Overall it should be a solid drivetrain with the 5.0L, 4R70W, 4406 T-case, and the custom d-shafts. weak points will be the front axle shafts(CV's) etc. but i hope to get past that with an SAS in a year or so

"drop down a spring". Means going to a weaker spring for the shifts in the valve body on the trans. Going from a, for example, 5lb spring to a 4lb spring.

yeah, as it sits now i have the medium kit in, and there is hard, and extreme, and also stock performance and low. so i'm gona ride the medium for a while and see how i like it. not gona hurt anything just will have to get used to the non-lag shifts.

Still at the damn exhaust shop, They told me it was gona get in this week but apperently nothing goes right with my project. so i hope those *****es get it done friday or saturday. Damn people getting lazy with thanksgiving on a thursday

Ahh, I've never had any bad experiences with where I usually take my exhaust.. they tell me to bring it in the night before, they work on it the next morning, and I get it in the evening after work the same day. Damn good work doing it that way =)
