Goodbye Autotragic

On the way to school two days ago, in the 12 degree weather, after not letting the car warm up! My transmission decided to dump her fluid out onto my exhaust and then on the O'Reilys parking lot. After school I decided it was a very good time to install that Getrag 260 I had in my storage unit. Fast forward 48hrs and the Vert is a 5spd car with a 3.73s Diff. I dont know why it took so long for me to do this. I also installed my 19lb injectors since she was off the road for a couple of days. It idled like crap the first 10mins and then smoothed out but I am still having to crank it for a while when its cold to get her to start. Hmm?

I havent decided on a chip yet. I have read the threads here regarding the different chips and I really want a Mark D but I cant afford that at the moment. Any suggestions on a good budget chip?
