    The later factory ground cable has a fat wire down to the block, a smaller wire that goes to the rad support, and a teeny wire for the ECM ground. Thats the one with the connector that kind of looks...

    If the battery is too low to power the ECM while the engine cranks, it might do this. Try to jump it and see what you get. Crusty connections at the starter relay will cause problems, so will bad...

    Mark 8 wheels have a different bolt pattern. You'd need an adapter to make it go. Forget the metric but its basically 5x4.25 vs 5x4.5.

    gear calc says that 3800 in 2nd with a 3.55 and stock-ish size tires (26.6") would be 58. Would be 34 in first gear. I'm assuming stock ratio AOD at least. Wide ratio would be 55 and 30...

    are you sure the tach is right? If it really is shifting that low, you're probably losing a lot of potential because of it. The HO governor typically goes around 4800, the lopo one is about 4300.

    it does a wide open shift at only 3800? Thats like a thousand too low. Also must be a hell of an aggressive shift kit if it breaks the tires loose at that rpm.

    depends what year and which amp, but the older ones had 3 wires heading to the amp for the front speakers, and more modern stereos need 4, 2 per-speaker. The original premium setup had a common...

    yeah, thats not going to play well with the Kenny. You should be able to get sound out of the rear speakers but possibly its shorting something out because the amp is there. Try unplugging it and...

    see if it changes with the TPS. Throttle position may change a bit and that might be enough to do it.

    otherwise you can lower the TV pressure a smidge, but too low will cause damage.

    thats spendy. I'm curious what someone wanted to pair an SBF with so badly to justify that. SBF 4R70w's exist, so it would have to be a 5+ speed unit. Does anyone make a controller for those?

    Intake to core, core to water pump. Restriction needs to be on the side coming from the intake. If the thread size didn't change, I don't see why that part wouldn't get the job done.
