    Hey looky, it works. I drove around the lot for a few laps datalogging then decided to do a little burnout. It was almost out of fuel so didn't drive it a long time but I did get some good data. Converter *might* be ok, it is a little loose but not obnoxiously so.

    Yes, very gingerly at first because I have no idea if the tune is anywhere near what it should be. Hence the need for the laptop to log my parking lot loops.

    If the hottest thing in the stable right now is the turbo 302 Mustang, this thing is going to scare you. Do you remember how to drive a high powered vehicle?

    I drove it further. 20 feet forward and 20 feet back. Might make some parking lot laps today if I remember to bring my laptop to the shop.

    I did shut the hood for the first time in forever though. Haha.
    I hear shop burn outs are the new rage! Joking

    Diff is swapped and driveshaft is partially installed. The 4.30 open diff is out and the spooled 2.75 diff is in. Those things are heavy.

    Fan works as planned. Still need to swap diff and install the driveshaft.

    I have not taken much time to work on the truck lately. I have been doing all kinds of stuff. Moving, dirt bikes, dirt bike trailer, home projects, raising SRT Jeep back up, installing a hitch on it and trying to get ready for Rocky Mountain Race Week.
