Gearvendors, anyone buy one recently?

I think this company is in serious trouble. New transmissions have taken away their business model. It's just us older truck owners who might possibly be interested. You agree?

Left the Echlin in for the past few days, no chokes installed yet. Noticed several times how much better motor sounds and feels. Went through rain with zero issues. Will install chokes anyway.

My numbers are: #8 3.4 to 4, #3 .7 to 1.5 in 1.5 minutes.

#3 is 1.3 and #8 is 3.8
Passes Injector and CCT.

Looks like I bought M14010.

Did that, Banks did not offer a 3.5 downpipe.
I researched on this site and because I don't tow heavy, it seems the best for me.
Running low rpm at highway speeds = drone.

Where to get 3.5 SS downpipe?

Running Banks Monster exhaust and what my bottom end back. I've been searching for just a downpipe for my truck with no luck.
Any help appreciated.

Centramatics are great, but will only correct minor imbalance issues. So every good balance job turns out to be a very good balance job. So smoother ride, longer time between re-balances.
