I had my hood custom made by a body shop. It turned out pretty good, not as nice looking as the tech 2 but it works.
My motor is completely stock, but it pull really good. I might just keep like this for a long while.
Did you get the tach working, with the dakota box? Mine works, but its really off with the actual rpms.
