Cool Heres where we are at......

Since the build....318 is now a 324, 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.

RAM RULE......

Throttle body spacer is a waste of money. it does nothing for a port fuel injected motor.

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?

I don't know if you've seen it yet, but LMC has the dash for $239

@ 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!
