NOS is easily removed as in most states its a HUGE ticket..

the 2600 stall converter is going to sound great around town.. but its going to wipe out any kind of MPG you will get..  it does not say how much compression it has.. but you should plan on running 91 or 92 octane fuel..  and plan on 8 miles per gallon and a LOT of fun driving it.. mpg kinda depends on actual carb tuning. see if it has an oxygen sensor installed and an air fuel ratio display.. there are idle feed restrictions that might need a little swapping to get the part throttle air fuel ratio correct.. this can help fuel economy.. .. it sounds like a LOT of fun..

dashboard is easily taken care of.   there are companies who can recover yours or possibly even new ones available i have not checked for the 72 model. .
