Sounds like you resolved a couple problems. I notice these are the unplated black barrels. Theses are also mentioned as a possible contributing factor in the spitting issue.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

I just got back from a test drive. The engine started and ran beautifully. I gave it about 10 minuntes to warm up while I secured tools and such. I noticed the difference within seconds. It has never been so smooth. I have never heard it run so queitly.

Acceleration was graceful and robust. Shifts were smooth and decisive. There was no longer any shudder in any gear. Conversations at 55mph werent quite so difficult lol.

All in all, was a worthwile cause, and so far so good!!
