Happy to be a new member !
Initial questions… anyone have the power antenna motor actuate fine when the Delco radio is turned on , however the antenna doesn’t move, and even when ignition is turned off, motor persists until junction wire under hood is dc’d !?
Would like to modify 1) Install a CAI , 2) change to dual exhaust, similar to a ‘ loud mouth axle back ‘ … recommendations? Lastly, for off-the-line torque, is it worthwhile to replace stock rear 3:15, with the optional 3:36, or more?
Thanks for input!
Lawrence

Concerning the gearing, did you look at the responses in your other thread?

On the performance questions you may want to look/join here.

One item on the antenna is the motor / harness is shorting out. Had some of those older OEM from 1968 on and it was a short that wasn't shutting down the motor when retracted, not sure it's your issue but something to review. I just replaced the antenna with a new one as the age of the units didn't make sense to try and repair.

The axel ratio has been responded to. Honestly unless it's going to be a 1/4 mile runner continuously the rest of the drive train will need to be considered at highway speeds.
