    Its getting crunch time and im still not done with everything. Turns out, the performer tbi manifold aint exactly spot on (figured it wouldnt be). I gotta find a different bolt for the distributor hold down since the hole on the performer isnt as deep as the stock manifold. Also, there is a hard line inlet on the front of the intake, that is towards the front of the truck about 2" more than the stock intake. I gotta figure out a way to get them to meet.:confused: The intake came with a few different sensors, which are the same, but have vacuum lines on them where mine didnt (cause the previous owner had blocked them somewhere). I need to trace those and figure out whats going on there.

    On top of that, it has rained every day multiple times a day for the last week. Thats hindering my progress since im doing it in my brothers driveway. Anyways, I may be iffy on this trip. Lets hope that tomorrow goes better than the rest of the week has gone or im sol.....:mad:
    BTW- If anyone has pics of the wiring on the stock manifold and where the vacuum lines go...that would greatly help me track them down. Thanks
