    I had a bunch of issues to work out with all the changes I did to the coolant. Got stuck with two bad thermostats in a row that made the truck over heat, had a coolant hose slip off while driving and short out the efan one day. After I got all the bugs worked out it’s running fine. Hottest it gets is around 195°.

    Polished Eagle heads, Eagle truck manifold, new headers and Custom built Y pipe, reflashed the converter to 3400, sent the valvebody back twice in the past 3 months to get converter lockup issues fixed. This year has been rough with a ton of stupid issues and breakdowns unfortunately. Right now it’s back to running fairly smooth

    I have an MSD window switch hooked up, but after I got it all together I found out the solenoid on the intake was broken and I never got around to ordering a new one since I was having so many other things breaking on me at the same time. I haven’t been to the track yet, I just got the transmission working right last week

    Couple questions. What did you do to up the fuel pressure. I went through this thread again and you talked about swapping to an 05 pump and walbro 255 or an external regulator, which route did you go? Also with the fuel rail you have feed lines going to both sides of the rail even though they are connected through a center line, what's that purpose? Is it like a "return line" just keeping the fuel cycling?

    I just replaced the 2003 regulator with a 2005 regulator. I added a fuel pressure gauge at the fuel rail and can confirm it has 58 psi of pressure. I haven’t changed out to a better pump yet, haven’t really needed to quite yet. I added the extra hose so it had better flow to the other side of the fuel rail because that crossover was kinda small, I have no idea if it helped or not. I switched back to the normal single attachment with the new intake manifold I’m using
