You got a good deal on Amazon. Looks like Hurst is dropping the price to clear the inventory. I wonder if they have a new shifter in the works ready to launch. I could not justify paying $500 when...

Thanks Ted. I read somewhere that the higher stall converters have an effect on torque. Maybe as the converter is slipping but it makes sense that it shouldn't especially when locked.

They came down in price. I think the price is now $300 but my wife won 50% off with a raffle at a car show so $150 was not bad at all.

What do you think? I'm liking the new look. One thing I did different though is that I used 2 small LED strips (total 12 LEDs) inside the plate firing vertical instead of the 2 that came with the...

SSMike, thanks for the photos. Looks like I just need some thread sealer. The can seems of good quality so far. No noises and it did trap little gunk last 3K miles.

Pistons might be ok but you'll know more once they are cleaned up. I would replace every single valve though. Those valve locks might be stressed as well, maybe wouldn't hurt to replace them.

Did you double check to make sure all the rockers were tightened with the lifter on the base circle of the cam? I made 2-3 passes on every rocker when i did mine.

Oh man, sounds like the cam might have been installed couple degrees off. Did you check for piston to valve clearance? Your valve may be bent. Hopefully the piston is ok.
