Thats outstanding and is very similar to my experiences with EFI (Fitech, FAST and Holley). I completely agree with your last statement, the haters are people who have never tried EFI and/or don't understand it. I will never run a carb again if I can help it.

Update:  FiTech working really well.  Starts right up, and the Lunati 703 idles lower and smoother than I thought it could.  The system will find proper idle in gear and with the a/c on, which is totally new and totally appreciated.  I am doubting a lot of what the forums say about the unit only learning when the temp reaches 170F.  My unit seems to have settled in, been driven a few times, and in cool weather, has barely reached 170F, but it certainly seems to have learned the motor while spending most it's run time far well below the 170F mark (so far, but summer in Texas is coming).  It starts without pedaling, holds a high cold idle for too long, and I'll work on that...I think I should probably change the thermostat, but it's just working too well to dive in and fix it so far.  I've only changed the idle and low rpm AFRs, taking targets to 14.1 due to a very slight after-smell, and it seems to like it - plugs look about right.  AFRS run about 13.5ish cold.  432 inches, Stealth heads at about 10:1, and Lunati 703 cam.  Pulls so much stronger and is much more ticklish to the GO foot.  Advice to others - their data leaves much to be desired.  Read all the posted reviews and installs you can - they are getting more and better all the time.  You'll learn more skipping the goofies and the haters and focusing on the problem solvers.  Can't wait for a long summer trip to test the mileage....  If I don't like it, I'll change it while I sit in the a/c.  :biggrin:

Thanks everyone for the sentiments. The appraiser came by Tuesday. I had already made up a list of parts I could tell were damaged, I went thru the AMD website and priced everything in the rear plus anything else I could think of. I came up to 16k in parts alone. I also have my original list of parts I have in it already and that one is about 12k. Hopefully early next week I will hear the final word from Hagerty and can find out about the salvage value.

Yes, the U-joints are good and tight (new) and the diff is also good and tight.

Did you check your U joints when you were working on the trans? In my experience, most of the time you get the rear "clunk" its either U joint related or differential (rear end) connected.

Dirk,

I am not aware of anything that attaches to the door frame other than some plastic clips to keep the cables routed away from the door glass as it is raised and lowered. I just put my Cuda together and i did exactly as I described. Could you perhaps post some pictures of what you are talking about?

Discovered it was a broken band. Replaced and we're back in business, however, I still have the CLUNK when I go into reverse.
Is this an adjustment? Could the spring be out of adjustment at the servo? U-joints are new and tight/ no play. Kickdown and band adjustments are set properly.
I don't want this to be the reason the band broke.
