    Looks good underneath with the exhaust.  Is that 2 1/2 or 3?

    What gears are you going with in the 8.2?

    Looks like a 4L60 trans.? So you don't have to have 4.56 gears.

    The pipe is 2 1/2". The rear axle is an 8.5" and I went with 3.42:1 gears. The trans is a 4L60E only because I wanted the low 1st gear. One car with 4.56 gears is enough. This one is hopefully nice to drive down the road at 60 MPH not revving 3500 RPM.

    I got my air intake tube made, computer flashed and running. I learned you have to leave the EGR Enabled in HP tuners so my wideband can give information to my ECM on the EGR position wire. I also learned you can put a 2002 truck operating system in a 093854896 ECM. Everyone is always bent on having a 12200411 ECM but I have a bunch of the 1999 and 2000 computers. I even put in a DBW vehicle and went in and shut it off and it still worked fine. I am going to finish the tail pipes tomorrow. The hood will close the way it is but will not if I put the engine cover on. I might make something out of aluminum if I get a chance.
