This^^^ we'll have to wait until Friday to celebrate. If she's still running good by then, she's fixed. (For now!)

Made the 15-20 minute drive home, with several red lights, and a stop at the liquor store, no problem. She behaved all along the way in the warm 78 degree weather...

Al gauges, including the speedometer and the digital clock (the "Chronometer") now all work!

Yes Sir!

And I've have it up to that mark (there's no peg to stop the needle). It's real easy to do 65-70 in this car before you even realize it. I can see it back in the day, when the speed limit everywhere was 55Mph, this thing was a road car.

I can tell a difference with the new ECU and the rpm curve. It seems to make a lot more sense with the trans' shift points now. It's meant to be driven with some throttle...
