Mod Party a Success!!! Runnin 25 PSI Now Thanks To Dino Fuel Alternatives!!!

Well.....Today was good day. met up at NWSUPRD's house to install my HPX line and Dino Fuel Alternatives Fuel Cross-Connect Kit. I was expecting the smoother/quieter motor, but I got a lot more than what I was lookin for.

We decided to do the fuel stuff first. The kit installs into the rear driver's side port and front passenger side port then runs into the return line. It creates a loop in the system that our motors should have come with from the factory. It went in smoothly and inlcuding the test drive took right at 4 hours. Could probably do it in 3 the next time, but I was goin slow and careful. The smoothness was amazing and the motor was much quiter. picked up about a pound of boost, but much better drivability.

Next I put in the HPX line. Didn't take too long...but...after the first run, the passenger side fitting must have not gotten tightened enough and pushed the o-ring out a bit and was seaping oil. Pulled that side off and replaced the o-ring with one of the factory ones since it was all I had and they were in good shape. Went for another test drive and everything is looking good. Just need all the oil to drain out of the valley so I know for sure I don't have any leaks.

The test drive after the HPX line was the crazy one. We took off down the "local drag strip" and I was cruisin along and Mike says.... "Wow....your at 25 pounds.." Right now my boost gauge is in the ash tray so I hadn't even been lookin..... Sure enough, I'm pushin just past 25psi max now. The truck gets there a lot quicker and much smoother than before. It's still hard to believe that I picked up almost 5-6 pounds of boost for $180!

If you don't have the coin for the regulated return, I would definitely suggest you get ahold of Jason over at Dino Fuel Alternatives and pick up the Fuel Cross-Connect Kit and HPX line. Well worth the money!!!

We also got Mike's new actuator installed....A BIG thanks again to Mike for the help and the shop space!

Umm.. at the risk of sounding like a troll, how did a HPX line pick up 4-5psi? A regulated return kit may pick up a little, but 5-6psi from both?

I was more than a little surprised myself. I know that before the mods, the #8 cylinder was failing the contribution test. If the motor was detuning the other cylinders to balance out with #8, now that #8 is getting fuel and oil, everything else can pick back up. I know the boost guage is working right because I've had it hooked up AE and they match. I know for sure that the truck spools up much quicker than before and runs much smoother. I will know what kind of power gain in a couple weeks when I get back on the drag strip.

I forgot my camera yesterday so no pics of the install, but I'll get some finished install pics later today.

I got my line from Jason over at Dino Fuel Alternatives. He doesn't have any pics of the HPX line on his site, but it is a soft line that ties the two rear oil ports in the heads together. This allows better and more balanced oil flow.

I also picked up the Cross-Connect Kit.... You can order the HPX line seperate or with the Cross-Connect Kit. You can find the CCK here..... Dino Fuel Alternatives: Cross Connect Kit, Modified Fuel Systems

The fuel part would help anyone out. The stock fuel system dead ends. This opens up the fuel system and creates a loop. This allows much better fuel flow and keeps more consistent fuel flow to each cylinder.
