    Ah that's right the Speedhut is a GPS speedo. Fancy

    Dang I'd love to be at only 2500rpm at 65mph, sounds like I'm a little bit higher at around 3k at 65. My W50 has a lower 5th gear ratio than your W58 so that would explain some of it. You have 4.10 gearing too, right?

    I just scrolled back through your build and watched your videos - OMG I literally had to backtrack because I thought I saw myself, like easily could be mistaken as brothers hahaha

    @jetas I mean, did you make the oil pressure and water temp sensor connections, if so what and how? About the gauges, I am wondering which size you went with? 4"? TIA

    I got the 4" gauges and i used the sensors and wiring that Speedhut supplied. A couple of adapter fittings between the sensors and engine and it was done.

    Another update! Finally got the MSD Street Fire ignition box installed over the weekend, bad news is i killed the truck. Had it running for a bit while it warmed up, noticed an occasional misfire but nothing i hadnt noticed before. Took it around the block and it was completely bogging out and missing. I luckily made it into the garage.

    made some changes, tried some things and still nada. I think my issue may be at the distributor since i verified that i have spark going to it. Idk the age of the cap and rotor on it as i got it used, but im guna be ordering some stuff and hopefully il get this sorted out soon
