Either way, I'm writing off my post sender repair "issues" as placebo and unrealistic expectations. I'm going to stick some goo up by the seemingly broken muffler heat shield, install the the fuel pump mounts whenever they arrive, and send this thing to MI! Can't wait.
I can see how going from 300 hp to a 240 would make you think something's wrong.

As my fiancee puts it, they're unsafely slow. She doesn't know about the kickdown cable though.

Keep your DVOM on hand & send it!
