I'll give them a call. They have good info on their site.

This is the shaft I was looking at. They have 100% feedback. *shrugs*

I looked at that company, too, but Russia seemed too far away if there was a problem. On the flipside, it is a place where people still fix stuff rather than just throw it away. I picked the guy from California and it just spiraled into a mess. Finally got the longer spline front driveshaft from Cobra and all was well (except for being without the car for an extra 6 weeks...). I rebuilt my TC while I was waiting. New chain & new seals. The internally splines looked ok, so I took a little chance with not replacing the output spline.

Just checking in...

I sent my only key (grey valet) and EWS box out to United Auto Security to have some duplicate master Keys made. I used their service on my M3 and was very happy...Plus they have awesome customer service. Looking forward to finding out if the keyless system works in the car....

I've got about 130 miles on it since the rebuild now. I noticed while driving it, that occasionally there will be a shudder in the drivetrain while driving 5-10mph up a slight to medium incline. Almost like the transmission is not downshifting when it should and is bogging down. Anyone have any insight on that?

Additionally, and maybe the most disconcerting... On my last outing I was pulling up to a red light and noticed that while I was stopped, the engine started to misfire, drop in rpm, and almost stalled- the situation lasting maybe 10 seconds. It didn't die, and after the light turned green it continued ahead just fine for the rest of my 10 minute trip. This is worrisome, as I'm restoring the truck to be reliable. I plan on taking this truck on road trips and pulling many trailers so I need to go through it to make sure it doesn't leave me or my wife stranded. I'm chalking the stumble up to the fact that I still haven't resolved the #34 camshaft trouble code. Thoughts?

I got keys on ebay & found a guy on CL that came to my house & coded the two keys, a key for my Mazda 6 & a key for my Honda CR-V for 100.00. (I know it's too late for you, sorry)

Thats a really good deal. I figure I did alright to get two new OEM master remote keys cut and coded for $190.

Yes! I got the new keys. Since I sent them the ews module, They started the car right out of the box, and after 5 minutes of programming them to the car they operated the factory security system too. Sure beats the dealer....

Try switching the camshaft position sensors, maybe this might work. Also, try to see if there are any leaks in the vacuum system and replace the MAF.
