    Found out my alternator was giving up, ran it about a week doing the pulsing thing and then my alternator dropped voltage altogether and also when it was doing the pulse thing I lost a headlight, I guess it was just the headlights time.. Thank god my alternator has a lifetime warranty.. I just got a new one and got it in on yesterday. Running good. Hope to make it to the track within a couple months. I need to get some nitto's or some good traction tires now with that 3400 stall, My tires break loose even when I'm going idle-40MPH sometimes even higher.. It really has alot of torque now, even with 273gears.

    You did the cam install by yourself? Or did you have a buddy help ya? I am hoping to be able to tackle that install myself this spring. Congrats on the Install and new feel of the car.

    Yep, Did all by myself, had a friend help with putting my transmission in tho, just to get it bolted up.. The cam is the easiest part of the swap, the springs were a problem for me at first, I probably spent 6 hours just on springs(2 hours just on the back pass side springs.. But I also had the spring compressor I bought the clip that held it together broke so I always had it falling apart (1hour) but then on the back pass springs I had to remove my hoses on my heater and it was easy.

    did you install your TC also, if so did you use a write up and where did you find the write up. I am hoping to do these installs in the spring or summer.

    To simple for a write-up in fact I've had my tranny out 2 times and put back in, the converter is just as easy to put in as any other converter, just take everything connected to the tranny out of the way and drop her down, be sure to have a good 2 ft worth of extrensions to get some of the top bolts that bolt the tranny to the motor, those were about the hardest part of the removal, and also I took my tranny out and put it in by myself.

    Just ordered what I wanted off their site and everything came in pretty fast, you know since Oklahoma and Texas are close and all.. But the gaskets kit was on backorder so it came in like the following week, Which I ended up pulley my crank back off to replace the seal and gaskets, because I could tell they were starting to leak.
