Re: Project "You thought yours was bad!" '78 C10 Stepside

Wow, I thought I'd never see this thing. Guess what finally showed up? At least I snagged it during the Holiday Sale (lol it's 2018 now...), along with the Demon throttle linkage adapter and the Holley EFI-to-Holley Distributor plug in adapter (seriously, Holley, you need an adapter for your OWN BRAND?!) Whatever, I'm glad it's here and hopefully everything works. I won't really be able to update until around springtime or when I get another truck out of my garage, as it's on dollies and pinned into the corner right now.





Also, total cost of the build so far. I know that I'll need a governor calibration kit for the 700r4, BUT I think this is about the last of the costs!
