Re: budget beater c10 to k30 swap over build.

yep but this polish also has a whole lot better reputation in the efi world for the kit so far .

talked with 1/2 a dozen guys with it and love it . 1 guy has just 120 miles on it aand already at 12 mpg and its still learning . the same guy also said he should have just skipped fitech and sniper and went straight for the edelbrock pro flo 4 from the start .

my kit cost 100 extra to get the tablet for it as i dont have tablets or smart phones.

Re: budget beater c10 to k30 swap over build.

Twin stick off a 4500/205 eh? I recently pulled the twin sticks off my 4500/205 setup cause I thought I was going with a 4l80 setup. Called ORD, they said take it off, send it back and they would send me a new one for th400/4l80. The new one is a floor mount, which I love because it works with any setup because it doesn't mount directly to the trans/T-case. ORD is awesome!
