    it is kind of dodges fault for making it confusing. as long as your learning that is all that matters. thanks. RamCharger are pretty fun. i got the slight advantage over your buddies since i got a 93 which came with the 318 magnum which is suppose have 230hp from the factory:naughty:. if you want to replace the hood ornament they still make them. they are about $50 and made of plastic. not exact same as original but they look the same.

    Ah, nice, his is an old DNR truck so it has the big spot light on it, that thing is blinding as hell, but none of us care about the power it puts down, we just go out for cruises out in the country. We live literally out in the middle of nowhere, it's pretty nice, although we aren't too far out, ~30 minutes away from a moderate sized city that we can get everything we need. Wish there were car meets out here though, not too big of car culture here to be honest, most of them are wannabe redneck. I could go on a huge rant about that but I'd assume none of you'd like to read that haha, let's just say rich parents give little Timmy everything he wants when he wants it.

    just the multi port fuel injection like my 93 or your 96 has is so much nicer than throttle body injection or carbed engines. now i do love the sound of a carbed engine but i love the power the fuel injected engine puts down.

    Oh same here, if I could post videos I'd post a video of my truck when I was just running through the throttle, I love it. And any idea what it'd cost to get a Carb re-jetted? Or how hard it would be, I know my neighbor has a '70 LS7 Chevelle and I'm like 90% sure it's Carbed, but I don't know if he'd be able to help me. He's never home, but he built that Chevelle from the ground up and it's amazing, I've got some pictures of it too, that I can post if you all'd like.

    well it is hard to say if it need to be re-jetted, cleaned or just tuned. sometimes carbs just need a good cleaning and tuning and they should be fine as long as they got the stock parts in the carb still. also depending on what type of carb it is effects what parts you would need to to re-jet it and effect the cost.

    I called my mechanic that I literally use every time I need anything at all, he said to bring it up to him if I get the chance, problem is. No plates.

    I drove my recent purchased truck over a hundred miles home with "Farm Use" plates from Walmart. Drove by one Trooper monitoring traffic and had one behind me for a short distance. Didn't even get a glance. Goes to show what the truck looks like....lol
