I guess I am in a nosy mood this morning and after having read many of your previous posts concerning your BIRD, I feel I need to make some suggestions to possibly save you some money and heartbreak.

That 390/300 is in no way going to power that BIRD down the road like you are expecting. You need to consider an upgrade swap to a 460. Easy HP and torque.

I was young once... ...and wish someone had given me a little heads-up along the way.
