I put an induction solutions plate on my truck and did a head change since then.  I can't wait to go back!  

When you find the street races please let me know, I'd like to get in on some of that action!

We will have to do that, I wanted to hit up these no prep races as well and hopefully have a traction advantage.

We don't run any gauges in our car but do have an oil pressure dummy light wired in.  Too much going on during a mid 4 sec pass to worry about gauges. LOL

I'll be in touch when I can figure out exactly what I need and how in-depth I want to go on the wiring. Do you sell ignition boxes? What else do you sell?

We sell everything.  I'm trying to get a web store built but that easier said than done when working two full time jobs currently.  I'll have more time when my teaching contract is up in June.  Send an email for anything and I'll shoot back a price.  Thanks

I have sent you a email with a list of items I know I will need to purchase eventually.

With trying to catch up because of snow days and delayed shipments I haven't even checked my email today. I'll check it tonight and get prices together tomorrow to you. Thanks

I don't have enough money for the dash. Had some unexpected expenses come up when I went to pick-up my engine.

I have a 4" autometer tach, oil pressure gauge & water temp gauge from and old build I'll use.
