DO the Throttle valve cable adjustment for better takeoff's and more oomph from dead stops too.

ya that's my next thing to do on my list thanks for the help.

And my buddies and i we might try to convert my truck to a 4x4 next year with a custome 4link for the front. We have done it to my buddy with a 90 blazer we did are own custome 4link with a solid axle in front, it loves to flex lol and loves the mud haha

where do you adjust it? i know someone told me to try and use a zip tie because it has about 1 1/2" long of cable wheres the pedal, i did that and didn't notice any gains of throttle response it just brings the padel more up front.

I have a litle situation now, i sold my 01 ram 2wd and picked up a 95 ram reg. cab 8' box. And this truck has a 318 and a 5speed standard tranny and 4X4 and with less millage then my other one. But this truck burns oil pretty bad and i find i dosent have the balls that it should with a 5speed, my other truck had litle more power and it was auto trans. So i'm guessing it might be that gasket under the manifold (that plate) and it smells like its burning oil and it smokes also. So any ideas what it would be? And the motor still runs great just burns way to much oil help me out with some ideas thanks.
