Since the build....318 is now a 324 cu.in, street cam, 360 heads dual spring, still FI with 1" spacer at throttle, same crank, new bearings all around, header/exhaust package, sounds great, and I might add runs great too. got bored in college and for giggles and to pass the time.... rebuilt it @ 282,000 miles. no problems with engine, no problems with tranny. So couple $$$$ later, my 98 1500 RAM gest down the road at bit quicker. well at least I can keep up with a HEMI to 85 mph and then its HEMI dust I eat.......
And for the winter months reworking my seat and re-doing color scheme, but damn that dash and how they don't last, and very expensive even on EBAY.
Watching and waiting for a good price......Did I mention no tranny (46RE) problems, my buggy has 305,450 miles now and still love driving it.

Awesome news! Good to hear some success stories. They are out there of course, because they have no need to search forums for problems. I ran into a guy with an 02 360 and 230k and it ran quieter than mine. What is your oil of choice? Plugs?

@ HEY YOU, I agree to a point about the spacer, in theory it acts as a venture effect....pressure drop in the middle and the flow speeds up, this also creates vacuum, so cylinders see a bit more air. I did notice a slight different, nothing to write home about did notice throttle response was different.
@ Ramman18..... since build, have hi-volume pump and was running 20-50 race, now synthetic 10-40, plugs platinum 4 with 9mm wires, wrapped headers, compartment getting to hot, so funneling heat out. during the summer run 180f thermostat, winter 195f.
@ ScurvyPete... thanks for the heads up on dash.
Down the road with hair on fire...RAM all the way!
