5th Gear Poster
So I went through and performed all of the maintenance on my bird, blah blah ya know, got it running in great shape. After that I did the exhaust and fabbed a CAI for it. Now I'm wondering what mod I should do next. Next summer I'm getting a PI engine and rebuilding the tranny wit a J-Mod. I can't decide what mod to do next on the thing. I have a few hundo dollars to work with. I was thinking either a chip or gears. Any insight?

91' Chevy 1500 - Can't wait for the 383 Stroker
You'll be nervous when you get the VB off, but once you get it on a table it's just like the tech articles. Just make sure you have EVERYTHING on the list, and plan for it to take an entire weekend just in case something goes wrong. I did mine in 2 hours with beer, and my buddies in about 1/2 hour with no beer. It's like riding a bike. Do a run with the tranny stock; Then do the J-mod, then do another run. Night and day. Good luck, and enjoy. (if that's what you decide to do)

Now if you lose your nerve or just want to stay on the safe side you can always purchase a kit already done for the level you want. I can set you up with one and all the gaskets, pistons, springs with an easy to follow pictured instructions. This way you will also have your stock VB to fall back on or turn it in for the core charge.
Lonnie I might take you up on that in a couple of months.... if you still have one of those kits lying around.
