  1. I just recently ordered this Racetronix (in tank) fuel pump upgrade kit from TSP. I've been having some issues with stumbling at low idles and I want to swap out the fuel pump to rule that out. Would I have to buy the new sending unit to replace the fuel pressure regulator or is there a way to replace it while I have the sending unit out? Also, are there any write-ups on here that anyone know of with instructions? I'm not sure if I'll have to grind the inside of the sending unit where the pump goes so that there will be enough clearance to attach the filter sock. TIA! https://www.texas-speed.com/Chevrolet-Silverado1500-2005_p-250-racetronix-in-tank-fuel-pump-upgrade-kit.aspx
  2. I'm starting to lean towards a Yank SS series 3600. Says its rated for 650 rwhp.
  3. Did you put the cam in before you did a bigger intake and head work?
  4. What about this one? https://www.texas-speed.com/p-1147-texas-speed-224228-581588-camshaft.aspx
  5. I plan on switching to LT's in the near future as well. What about a 224/228 .575/.588 112 lsa?
  6. I'm about to throw on a Circle D 278mm 3200 stall torque converter on my truck pretty soon then I want to do a cam swap. I'm wanting a good street/strip cam that would work well with the TC and current mods. I'm just wanting to get in the low to mid 13's and might swap the intake in the future. If you guys have a good idea for a cam for this setup, feel free to share. Just trying to get my build all planned out. Thanks..

    That really sucks because a lot of the how-to threads are missing pictures.
  8. Do you know where I can find these plugs? I've always wondered about that. It looks like you could just run the right bolt with a nut on the back side that would keep it from leaking.
  9. What happened? Did the rotors warp or do you just mean the pads wore out?
  10. I've done some searching on this with no luck. I plan on painting my calipers soon and I was wondering if I used a couple hose clamp pliers to squeeze the brake line above the caliper, would I be ok to undo the brake line from the caliper without getting air in the lines? I really don't want to paint them while they're still on the rotor.
  11. Any of you guys ever run these brakes? I've heard pretty good things out of this set for the money. I'm needing to change my pads so I figured I might as well change the rotors too. $300 for all 4 rotors and all the pads is pretty hard to beat. While I'm in there, I think I'll paint the calipers too. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005FKXXNG/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1405501484&sr=8-1
  12. I didn't realize they were molded plastic. If that's the case I could just try to strip the black paint.
  13. The previous owner of my truck painted the ducts black and did a bad job so it's chipping. I'm thinking about returning them back to their original color. Anyone know the name of the silver GM used?
  14. Not sure about the quality of this one but it looks the same. $61.83 witth free shipping is pretty hard to beat. http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?nav=item.view&id=351030470809&alt=web
  15. Does anyone have a pic of one of these mounted? I wonder what it would cost to get it painted?
