excellent how are you running your e fuel setup? why do you feel you needed a fuel cooler?

I used a Hayes 30 row cooler for both and I read the cooler your fuel temps are the better the atomization and e fuel flows more fuel than stock sticks can use so it picks up heat passing through the fuel rails and heats up the relatively cooler fuel in your tanks after it goes through the return line not near a good computer sorry for the wait on pics

That's the same trans cooler I run and I rarely hit 150* in the summer. That's all stock though.

Yeah i think they are well made and do a good job and i only paid 70 bucks for each comes with every thing needed for install but i got some extra hose just to replace both lines i guess you could compare this to the 6.0 or V10 tranny cooler they always say those are 30 rows tall

my trans cooler is like twice that size, and i never seen it above 150 as well, but when i ran that edge programmer on it i seen it get to 180, but im confused on the fuel cooler part, these trucks have a fuel heater built into the bowl so wtf?

That fuel heater isn't worth 2 cents from what I read if it's that cold you should be running a fuel additive to prevent gelling and I don't have the stock housing anymore because I switched to e fuel my filters and pump are in my bed and all I have in the valley now is a Y fitting and 2 3/8" SS lines going to the fuel heads and an aeromotive FPR from there it goes to the cooler and back to the stock return line.

I live in south eastern Va and I've never had a problem with gelling in my fuel and if it was 0* or below I would be putting that red bottle of diesel 911 in the tank and pray lol but other wise it's just hot as balls here and I remember how hot the old fuel bowl would get so I'll see if this pump pushes more fuel it will just keep it cooler idk
