Two blocks on an incline

I'm having issues figuring out the acceleration of the 2kg block down the incline in the attached problem. When I apply Newton's 2nd law to the x-component in the direction of the acceleration, I end up with two unknowns (T and a). Could someone give me a push in the right direction to solve this?

Secondly, would someone be able to verify I calculated my friction forces correctly? Thanks everyone.
