    It's only.....



























    $400!!!!! :eek1: :eek1: :crazy: :eek1: wait...... :eek1: :haha:

    sheesh, I'd love to finalize the dash, but thats gonna have to be priority #53.... I'm gonna have to down a few shots of Turkey too before I order that...

    Can't do that when I need to come up with 2g's for tires and running gear in a couple months..

    Oh well, maybe I'll hit the mega-millions tonight.... :haha:

    Geez, that seems a little pricey. Have you come to a decision on what your tires/runnin gear will be?

    Autometer pisses me off.. The A/F's come in every series, except Pro Comps.. No 2 5/8's sizing... grrrrrrr..

    running gear, standard stuff..

    4" TC's or BDS up front with a zero rate, some good shackles.. Kert's flip out back, good shackles, 56" springs.... some bilsteins...

    Tires I'm looking at SSR's in 37 x 12.50 x 16 or Irok's in

    36x13.50-16, probably going SSR's...

    I'm gonna try to sneak it thru inspection next month with the wiped mall terrains, then lift it up.. figure I may as well get 2 yrs in with a good sticker before DMV can potentially hassle me..

    hehe, well, do we really need anything? :wink1:

    Nope, nothing other than wanting to keep an eye on it when I start working a tweaked Tbi on a 383... Definitely be nice to aid in tuning.... Tho it will be laptop capable long before I buy that guage..

    I could run a Pyrometer, and am still considering it.. But it's tuning help is not as good as an A/F, tho it is more consistent... and hella cheaper.... :eek1:

    I'm already over-infoed with my dash, it's just one of those things where you think "man, if I was rich, I could just finish off the dash and be done, done with it..." :haha:

    Yes, it would be nice to get into a truck with a dash that looks like a dash that you would see in a NASCAR racing machine :rolleyes:

    It says wideband, does it by chance come with a wideband O2? If it does, that would justify and explain the cost.

    Ryoken, I know you like the autometer gauges, I have the sportcomps myself, but MSD makes a 2 5/8" wideband A/F ratio. It is that new gauge they recently came out with called Lazer. Summit has it. Just thought you might be interested.

    Hmmm, well I'm an idiot, considering..... http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201294&highlight=msd

    I saw they had air/fuel, but didn't even think to see if they where 2 5/8..:doah: :haha: Thanks mang... :D




    hmmm, wonder which would look better with my Pro Comps and ring painted copper..

    [​IMG]

    It is $10 cheaper! :haha:

    Well, I guess when I have $400 just laying around doing nothing, I can decide... :haha:
