    Over time I have made a few upgrades to the truck .

    first was a new exhaust. And a set of headman headers . Full 3" single pipe and a straight through muffler.

    I put put on a wideband O2 sender and a AFR gauge.
    the jeting was perfectly set but after the headers it was lean and needed some tuning.

    I had the trans rebuild . In stock form it had a lazy early shift. And would not down shift well . Now it shifts fast . It will down shift and rev to 5000 rpm and bang the next gear. I had it built to handle more power.

    i up graded the radiator to a aluminum high performance unit.

    the eddy 600 cfm 1405 seemed to small .
    I picked up a new Holley 3310 750cfm vacuum secondary.

    I picked it up for a song from a guy with a carb and chevy parts hord .

    base line jetting for the 3310 750 Holley is really close . Wot is perfect 12.5:1 afr. Performance is excellent.
