    This was a few years ago when we drug it out of the barn to start playing with it again. Laying down cardboard boxes and ready to polish the hood and aluminum bumper, radiator, and wheels.

    Didn’t read all the posts so this might have been asked

    But is there still a good profit after the FET and taxes on new to make it worth it?

    Lol first issue is 80 to 85
    Second is if you haven't tuned it that would blow your mind
    Third is it has a TON OF CRAP AFTER THE TURBO AND BEFORE THE TURBO you should do something about or get rid of it

    my 359 has a king cruse unit on it, it was on the truck when i got it, hasn't worked as long as iv had the truck but i really haven't messed with it yet. king cruse is no longer in business but they do still offer some limited support/parts. there is some other units that look like they could be easily adapted, just hasn't really been a priority yet.
