    Looks great! Were are still here watching- even from the UK!

    Can I ask which lower arms you have and if they are still available?

    It’s very difficult to get any upgrade parts here in England.

    Thanks dude and keep at it

    DJM. Yes that are readily available online from several sellers. I believe I purchased these new off a seller on Ebay.

    Found time to work on the truck some more here latlely.

    Purchased a oem TPS, Dashpot and adjusting screws from the local dealer to go on the BB throttle body that sits in front of the LCE spacer.

    Removed all the emission junk and added block off plates. While I was at it, I upgraded the injectors to the flamethrower Bosh 4 holes. Also decided it was time to re-route some vacuum lines and the vsv's for the AC and fuel regulator. To top it off I replaced the junk LCE fuel guage w/ a Aeromotive unit which actually reads correct.

    All in all, I'm happy with the looks but with all the upgrades (.30 over, RV Head, Valves, Cam, TB, Spacer, Header, and exhaust) it runs really lean so I've ordered a stand alone wideband o2 kit for a simple Air/Fuel tune that should be here Monday or so. I Haven't decided yet if I want to adjust/tune the AFM manually or buy the LCE rich/lean adjuster. I'll figure that out here in a day or two I guess.

    Few more upgrades are around the bend so I'll post progress along the way when I find time.

    Truck looks awesome! I remember when it got hit. I’m trying to find the time to try and finish mine also.
