A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

It's stalled too high for the TA49 I am using on the GN. It was on the spare motor/trans I bought. I was thinking tonight, actually - that since I will have to swap the trans in the 87 T yet again - maybe I should put that converter on and swap the factory turbo for the PT51 from the spare motor. 

:hmm
