    Cool - congrats !

    Just got mine running again also, and yeah gotta love that TBI set-up

    How many miles you got on it for break-in? mine in running great also, but the manifold vac is still a little low, I'm thinking the rings are not really seated yet ....

                Thanks man - I was thinking about 300 miles, but 500 does sound a little better - I've only got about 85 miles on mine and it's already running great ....

                Also just realized your running the full Mopar MPI ... I really wanted that, but could not afford ... went with the Howell Kit, but even that kicks butt.

                See your in Suisun - I'm about 5 ish hours north, just below the OR boarder.

                Have fun man - Mark

                Oh and do let us know about the gears, that's my next step ....

                Edit: the T5 has a .86 od, I've got the same set up.

                  The T5 actually has the means for a few different OD gears... .86 is just the strongest because of the gear size. Thats why its popular
