Quote from: SixGun on March 23, 2013, 02:33:26 pmI do have the lockup converter. Going down the freeway at 70mph it still pulls 3 grand on the tach. I guess the computer should be shifting into 4th but it isn't there to shift into. When I initially was looking up computers for it, 3spd auto vs 4 spd auto were different PN's. When I pull out from a stop it shifts into 2nd and almost immediately rolls into 3rd. I had adjusted the bands before and I believe it is the same for V6 vs V8. Picks up speed real good but is still a barn door going against the wind. Smooth acceleration. Haven't done any thing crazy yet. At a stop, I just tap it and it jumps.Hey that V6 wasn't a slouch but the V8 sounds good - real good. Duals would be cool but I'm content for now at least. I just went and had the exhaust welded up a little while ago but I still need to fab something for the air tube hole in the exh manifold. Kinda noisy till I get up to about 25-30mph then it mellows out. I put a bolt with washers and a nut to plug it but it still is noisy on that side. Luckily the magnum manifolds only have one side to plug. I picked up small steel freeze plugs at Advance before to plug the V6 but the guy said they don't carry them that small anymore. Hmmm... I checked at few places and same thing. The guy at Oreilly's even checked the Dorman website for me with no luck. It's a 5/8" hole. As far as gas mileage goes, I still need to fix the odometer plastic gears.
