2005 LLY Duramax Suburban Build

I'm in the middle of a swap right now. 2005 suburban with an LLY. This is my first swap and I've probably put more time into reading than I have working on the thing as of right now. I Have a few questions that I don't see much coverage on.

1. Dual tank setup- I would like to retain the rear tank transfer pump into the front tank. Then I want to use an airdog to pick up out of the front tank and deliver to engine. What needs to be done to have it work like this?

2. Fuel Filler Neck- The diesel nozzle is bigger than the gas nozzle and it won't fit into the filler neck. What have the people that have done it changed to make the filler neck compatible with the diesel nozzles

3. I know I saw it on here somewhere, but does anybody have the heights the pucks have to be cut at to do the "reverse rake". I couldn't find it again.

Other than that. I do believe everything else is figured out. Thanks guys

I included pics of the current situation of the build. Figured if I was here why not half-a$$ restore it

I used a Fass pump and mounted it on the rear frame rail. I also used the fass suction kit and mounted it so it would suck from the stock bucket. I junked all of the fuel lines except for the vent system and ran AN lines and fittings...Overkill but I have a 600+horsepower fuel system need be. Id be glad to text you the pics I have of my fuel system.

Do you still run the factory fuel filler neck?
