        well. i just drove it to the gas station!!!!! fuck yea. runnin rough of course, dont think the alternater is working anymore, adn i think im a lil low on tranny fluid, its not shifting very well. also may need to run a better vaccuum line. anyways, the flash stall is at 2600 rpms and it gives a nice tug! oh yea! im so fuckin happy!

        edit: and yes, it burns both 275s when launching.

            Awesome man. For the record, my car will burn both 255 with stock everything. And mine are way taller.

                  well, i drove the merc to work today. noticed a few issues. its not shifting properly.... if i nail it off the line, it shifts at about 3200rpms (and actually chirps the tires at the low rpm shifts too). BUT i dont have the kick down connected... that may control the amount of time it holds the gears, and not just for downshifting. other issue is that if i launch easier, sometimes it doesnt wanna shift at all. and i have to let off and tap the gas a couple times. i think that may be a vacuum issue. had to buy a new battery today, need to replace that vac line, do an oil change and tune up, and it should be good to go. im happy though.

                      How are you working the kickdown, a cable setup run off the throttle body?

                              I wouldn't drive it much without the kickdown attatched.
