dreaded cackle

I got my truck to do the cackle. I ran the tank dry and made it to the gas station, on the way there it started to cackle. When this happened i know the tank was almost empty, so air started to get in the system. So this
gives me proof that having air in the system makes it cackle. I have done the
in tank mods and the air line mods to get rid of the air in the system.

well you have to take out the fuel feed line in the tank and put a straight line that goes to the bottom of the tank. Second you have to take the return line out and put a longer one in away from the feed line. Then you harpoon the tank by taking a knife and cut the plastic tube off. Its at the top back of the tank so when you fill the tank it wont shut off when you are able to put 5 more gallons in. then you replace the fittings on the fuel lines going out of the tank with rubber hoses with clamps.

ITP sells the prepump kit. I have it and it works well.

To totally get rid of the air you need to put a regulated return on there. this will allow air to pass through the fuel rail and head back to the tank rather then getting trapped in the deadheaded fuel rail.
