Well if you roll through Salem Oregon hit me up. I should have my conversion started by then. I could even send you to some cool places around here to check out.

1500 miles down, running like a wild animal!
Did run hot for first 30 miles, plugged it in and ran test on fan clutch. Passed test but parameters were set to kick on at 210 deg then off at 200. Too hot!
Dude guessed the password to be able to alter programming! (Ludlow) or (Laidlaw ). Crazy!
Changed it to kick on at 200 off at 190, now she cruises at 70 mph ,2200 rpm!! Ah freedom!!
