Valve body is all back in and Tom says there's no more hesitation in the shifting and he's happy with it. He still needs to hook up the 4x4 switch and then i'll pick it up tomorrow evening. Troy says if shift points need to be moved just to bring it down or ship him the computer and he'll take care of it. Dale has my winch remote on order and i've talked to a couple people about fixing the front bump stops up to where I need them. Could it be??? Dare I say???? Ready to wheel??????

Haggar....need to check with Troy again about what part # those 02's are. When I looked them up they had square or oblong connectors. Ours are or at least were triangular. He may have changed the harnass to fit them, but i will be double checking and let ya know.

*edit* Yes, Troy changed the connectors on my harnass for the 02 sensors. they used 02's that are for 94-97 LT1 96-97 vortec.delco part number AFS75 not bosch

I'll be taking it for a test ride tomorrow after work, runs so nice, shifts nice too. Probably will take Toms advise and add a shift kit down the road. There is a small exhaust leak which i'm not real happy about and will hunt down this weekend. It is way quieter then I expected, that I like a lot.

So glad to have it home and all together. Damn it was a long crazy project.

And expensive. $5300 after selling what I could.

So what you are saying is if I were to have a harness that needed to be reworked, and ECM reprogrammed Howell>Jim and I get to keep my money in Michigan?
