Nice, I thought about driving out there as well but ended up just having a local place get one and install it for me.

I was going to be going in Dec so not quite as nice as now. It is much better than the stock one. Feels like it will handle anything I can throw at it unlike the stock one where I was always wondering when it would go.

I got mine installed June 8th, loving it so far. Tunes have a lot to do with the tranny as well. Did you stay with Adrian & Kathy? Everyone there is great. Tell Tina I said hi, lol.

What torque converter (stall) did Brian put in your trannies? Brian said he typically matches what's in there or is usually around 1900/2000 stall iirc. I always thought we wanted a lower stall unless we were racing. It's much more efficient which makes it seem like a lower stall though.

My shifts are nice and quick but very smooth. Money well spent in my book. Truck seems like it scoots a bit quicker as well.

Kyleh, sorry you had to come to Arkansas on the hottest day in 45 years.
It was 110 at my house at 3 PM. Little Rock was 105. Be safe going home.
Doug

I stayed with Adrian and Kathy. They run the lakeside resort in Diamond City. Its the last place on the right just before you run into Bull Shoals lake.

I imagine by now you found a place, being its almost midnight there. or you can camp out at the lake.
