i didn't help that my tune on my MS caused me to go pig rich and have no power whatsoever. (not smart to hook WB and NB to same input)

I was able to pull the second motor today. So as soon as I re-torque my PP bolts I'll be to drop the old one back in. sorry no Pict-chas!


Might take off Friday and get er done and have all weekend to fix everything that fails.
