That sounds like an even better method because it gives you a chance to make sure the gasket hasn’t shifted. Use the cover to mold the gasket down and make it stick and then remove the cover and put...

It all depends on whether it’s worth shifting. That extra 200 RPM may be all you need. I run into a gearing issue with my GT every now and then where it would take more time to shift than it is worth.

You missed a real nice combination for a street driven car. 21/23. It only came on the 1979 GT. The 79 model also had stiffer springs in the front. They drove neutral. No understeer or oversteer.

Mystery codes are often caused by a bad ECU. Borrow a 933 or 946 ECU and see if all the codes suddenly disappear. The 954 and 967 are Turbo ECUs. Not a suitable replacement for your 556.
