How many of you are running the Hpx line from strictly diesel and what are your thoughts on it was it beneficial for 70 bucks it seems worth it

I didn't see a power gain or anything, its more like insurance that both banks of cylinders are running as evenly as possible.

For about $25, you can have a flex hose one made at your local hydraulic shop.

Just an FYI.

To answer your question, I didn't notice a single change. Maybe a slight better idle. Most likely not. Just insurance that each bank is as equal as possible.

Yep, I have a Riff Raff one that is brand new as well. Never used.

I bought it but also bought a T4 style turbo and couldn't use it.

If anyone is interested, I'd sell if for a good price as well.
