Very nice turn out on this project.  You did a good job and it looks really cool. I did a carb to TBI swap on my truck a while back and I love how reliable it has been to just let the computer handle it all and I enjoy it.  I hope your enjoying your hard work.

Did you run your own vss from the transfer case? How did you get the wiring to work well without all the inputs from the pcm?
