    Ok.....minor point here.


    Time to get that steering wheel pulled off and give the spokes a fresh shot of paint. Maybe a quick sanding of the wheel itself and a couple coats of polyurethane???

    Everything else is looking so CHERRY, it's a shame to be staring at a wheel like that each time you drive!! :blush:


    Have a great time tomorrow, I'll be up early sending "good karma" your way......

    Sawwwweeeeeeet!

    I'm with you in spirit man... I'm hoping to fire mine up this weekend too. I thought about you a lot while I was installing my Pro-Flow. I'll be following this post closely!! I've been reading the Edelbrock manual over and over this week trying to get into my head how to work the calibration module and such.

    Congrats. Can't wait to hear that BBC roar to life. :saweet:

    Dude. That Rat just sounds wicked. :cool1:

    It was surging when we first fired it up, and it was hesitating right off idle..
    Once we got it timed and looked into the edelbrock MPFI programmer and started bumping up the % amount of fuel at idle, the surging stopped and it instantly starting running smooth...
    Burt.. you might wanna keep track of all the little things you do with the programmer to tune it and get it to run perfect for you.. I predict others will be going with the pro flo setup in the future as well after you brag about how awsome that thing is running.
    I'm scared for Burt's drivetrain. :grin:

    Like Ryan said, it was surging at first but as soon as they dialed it in it sounded really good! That was one clean engine and install, I can't wait to see that truck in action after hearing it in the garage last night.
