Finally another update. Still haven't mounted the turbos but have about everything else done. Did a feed the beast mod. Everything is 3/8 from tank to injection pump now. Got these from home Depot.

Drilled out the center for Max flow and used an o-ring where it screws into pump.

Found a larger fuel filter housing and with some fittings from Napa got it plumbed up. And mounted behind the driver headlight. ( Guess I should mention the batteries are in the bed now. Will do a write up on that as well. )

Plan on upgrading the lift pump soon. Has a newish ac delco. I installed a liquid filled 0-15 psi gauge on the IP side of the filter and was surprised to see it is 9.5 - 10 KOEO and 8 and drops to 5 when running and punching it.

Anyone know what the IP can take?

Don't remember the model off hand but it's one of the best mechanical pumps from what I've read.

While I had the intake off I did a gasket match port job on it. .

Pressure washed it with degreaser after to make sure all metal was gone.
You can feel a bit more power now and with it 18:1compression it rolls coal like crazy if I hammer it.

Plumbed the turbos together so I can set the boost. Decided on 12.5 psi and can adjust it with boost controller. Maybe 15psi Max not sure.
