Found the best mod ever at lunch today. Robbie mentioned it to me and reminded me again yesterday.

Adjust the throttle cable and kickdown if you haven't yet. Amazing increases in HP, torque, and giggles.

How to fix busted trip odometer:

Take it apart, find the busted part, and glue it. The knife was really cool, the weight of it was enough to keep pressure on the glued joint until it set.

Threw my first code today as well...I felt so proud I guess downshifting and powering out of the turns is not favorable to the ECU.

So how long does it take you to pull your dash now? Or how many would it be to swap a D light?

Funny how this is referencing an 80 series.

Takes about three minutes now. I have 20 D lights that are incandescent and 2 that are LED if you need one. Bring the truck by and I'll supervise the R and R.

Cleared the codes....P0510 or 501.....throttle position sensor caused by me tightening the cable too much. I figured if it didn't affect idle it was ok, I guess the resistance/voltage wasn't neutral so it was mad.

Stopped by Christo's and picked up a new speedometer so that is in now. The odometer worked until I pulled the needle off...don't pull the needles off.

Latest mod showed up yesterday

Front seats, headrests, console, armrests, door panels, and rear seats all included. I'll reverse engineer the shifters and the steering wheel if I can. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.
