I like it. The 2.95 first gear works well with my 3.73's. The trans feels more like an old close ratio toploader or Mucie M-22. If I shift from 1st to second at 4000rpm, it drops to only about...

Sure you have it wired as a 302 HO and not a 302 non-HO? The HO uses a 351W firing order.

The pick-up coil in the dizzy can be bad too.

The Explorer is probably OBD-II where the 95 V8 cars are OBD-I I believe. You would have to rewire under the hood and need something in the block to turn the oil pump as well.

85/86 T-Top cars are more common than most other years. At least they are around here. I know that 88 was the last year for T-Tops.

My T-5 has over 170k miles on it and it has been thru slicks and nitrous and about any other thing I can throw at it.
