    Well, at least for today.:D I blew a hole in the flourolastomer section of the factory hose, course it came from the salvage yard.

    Made my own fuel lines today out of steel brake hose, worked great. So far that is. Everytime I think I've killed the Gremlins the little bastages come back somewhere else. Took it out CO 52 down I-25 and back on Hwy 66. It ran very well, skit eating grin all the way. We'll see if the good times last tomorrow. I know this thing already runs better stock than my old carbed, cammed, and Edelbrockified 350. It isn't even broke in yet and it pulls like crazy. The biggest difference I notice between carb and TBI is the pedal action. You need very little throttle in comparison to acheive the same acceleration results. I love every minute of driving this thing now.

    Highway cruising is far better as well. Smooth as silk.

    :D
