I've been moving at hope speed for the last few months , but i've finally collected pretty much everything I need to finish it off . so I'm gonna try and catch up to the rest of the world . hoping to have it running within the next couple days , and on the road within the next three to four weeks. And as for pep , if my calculations are correct , It should have almost triple the horse power and torque that the old 2.5 had and I can't wait.#yeah

Thanks , and I here ya on the carb thing , offroad carb or not the whole thing makes me a bit nervous . part of me wishes I woulda stuck to the original plan to go with injection , but good god do I ever hate wiring , even the small amount I have on this engine is pissin me off a little:badday .
