Haven't tried to start it yet. Right now I'm just trying not to blow myself or the engine up

any GM distributor that came on an EFI engine won't work because it will have no advance mechanism at all. Best bet is one of the GMPP HEIs. They're usable out of the box and last forever. Just leave all the GM electronic components in place. No 80,000V coils or multi-whatever modules.

ok, ordered the HEI and some new wires. Have to head out on business for a couple weeks so I may not get to try all these goodies until I get back. Entry to the house is starting to look like the back of a UPS truck. I'm running out of excuses for why there are so many boxes coming for the "piece of junk" in the garage

And I thought I was the only that had a piece of junk in the garage. I asked my wife for birthday gift ideas for her, "Get the POS out of the garage." Well, that gift is officially off of the list now.

Anyone have a suggested part number for the oil pan? I just put the oil cooler eliminator on and it reminded me that I need to get a more streamlined oil pan for the lowered truck.
