Noticeably more torque on the bottom end, hesitation is gone, idle is back to normal, and braking is MUCH better. Still trying to sort out the GM ECU that doesn't want to connect to diagnostic software, but I guess that can wait for another day (and more $$).

In any case, I feel MUCH better about taking it to Moab, and with any used car (especially one with a swap) it was probably a good idea to get it to the mechanic to sort out the things I'd miss or just didn't know about. I still have a bit of a list to do myself, but now its MUCH more manageable.
Can't wait to compare notes. Mine is running great too.
