just be careful with the 4-53 have build a ton of them from people turning the rack up for more highway speed and the old things cant take the RPMs self destruct.

detroits rule, just make sure its ok to leak some oil on the ground where you park

and yes gear your truck up big time, the redline on the little 4-53 is like 2800, even tho it sounds like 4k
