it sounds like an OBS truck, sometimes you have to beat the fire wall in a little to get it to work. I say just be patient wiht her and make sure you dont bust somethin up that didnt need to be. It will take a little finesse

hahaha thanks ya'll it is a 95 f250 we had to beat the mess out of the firewall but it went in. What would ya'll reccomend next to put on it for performance. I use it as an everyday driver i can't afford the big stuff that boggs the fuel mileage.
