FYI.............................

As of this evening she's fully tuned. Final idle speed is now set at 800 RPM (TQ Management controlled the engine w\ these Hot Rod cams much better when set at 800 RPM vs 750 RPM........engine under full HVAC load will now take off easily in 1st gear w\o any APP input just as it did running the Lunati's on the same steep grade hill incline sections I use in all my drive cycle\datalog runs thus good A\B testing).

A little tweaking in the right places can go a long way...............................

Here's the exhaust note cadence at 800 RPM........................

Mine are barking thru a full Pypes Super Bomb Mid Muffler catback exhaust w\ 4" x 14" chrome resonator tips. I almost went w\ a Borla Stinger setup myself until I saw this Pypes setup............reminded me of all the 30" glasspacks w\ 4" x 14" stove pipe chrome tipped exhaust I ran back in my younger E\Tex years on both my cars & truck................was too sentimental to pass it up.

Been great ever since.

Very nice.

Does that fan resistor differ from the stock one in any way other than just having an extra ground?

I guess it would depend on what year your is, it does have heavier wiring. Mine was the old style resistor that looked like an old ceramic coil.
But I did some assembling while I was at it. :)

Drove it to work, got gas on the way home, got 12.4 mpg over the last tank which included the dyno runs and a bunch of spirited driving
