Well as some of you may have read in my last build there, "The Black Sheep" I sold my truck and purchased another. Im starting a new thread to document its build over time.

The new truck is a 2002 QCSB also. It is Graphite, with the Agate interior, Full leather, dual power heated seats, and an Auto...I know... 87k on the clock and no rust; a super clean truck. It is a non-sport truck as well.

I bought the truck from Washington state, and it is being shipped here, to Maryland, and I should see it by the end of next week.

The list of stuff I have sitting here for it or on order are as follows:
Fuelab Velocity 200GPH lift pump
Fuelab 75mic pre filter with stainless mesh
Liberty module with a Draw Straw 58 (that's right a 58. Its a 5/8 draw straw to match the -10AN (5/8) fitting that the Fuelab pump uses)
Russell -10 fittings and hose
-10 to 12x1.5mm injection pump fitting from Vibrant performance, Part # 16632 (only company that makes one that I am aware of)
DOR Heavy duty Track bar (from the Black Sheep)
Shackle flip
Atlas progressive leaf springs
DOR bent Long arms
Synergy progressive coils
Disk brake SRW Dana 80 LSD
TST PowerMax Competitoin
Smarty S-03 REVO
Speed Hut Gauges
Edge Insight CTS


That's all I can think of that I have for it right now....And I need to get more:
Shocks
Steering components (thinking crossover this time around)
Steering brace
Who knows what else when it gets here to pass inspection. Hopefully very little.

I know the -10 (5/8) fuel line is way over kill, but since the Fuelab pump uses -10 fittings I figured why not just make the only restriction in the fuel system the fitting right at the pump. Ive also purchased all the stuff needed to make my own wiring harness for the pump, since I like wiring my own stuff.

Truck will need to have cab lights installed, an 'old man visor', sport head lights wired my way!, in channel vent visors, Husky floor mats front, rear, and center hump), Single DIN receiver with back up camera input like in the Black Sheep, Motor tweaks...

Stay Tuned...:party018:

Have you used fuel labs before? Interested in the comparison between FASS as far as pressure, reliability, cost etc.

No, but their reputation precedes them. They are a brushless motor wet motor with a board inside that controls draw to keep a very consistent fuel pressure. I talked to the guy at Fuelab, and he told me I should never see a drop in fuel pressure...never. So, we'll see about that. Im skeptical, but I will test that theory as soon as I get the tranny in! Plus they have a third pole on the motor that will double the amperage draw if necessary. Its not something you want to leave on all the time, because from what I understand it puts the motor in to max amperage draw mode and it will get hot. Its something that is for competition use. I may hook up an Aux. switch to it down the road...

I hear about this fuel lab but havent heard any real time info on it. Curious to see how it works out. Never really looked into them.

Well I guess we'll find out soon enough. :) I got it through Vulcan, and they priced matched what XDP would do. XDP has just the pump for 729 and then a 10% discount code. So that comes in at $659.10 The install kit would be around $180 more, but since I have the ability to make my own wiring harness, im using a Vulcan Liberty Module with a DrawStraw 58, and AN fittings and hose, it was really pointless to purchase it.

Interested to see how it works out! Sounds like a nifty little piece of engineering. Not seeing a pressure drop under any circumstances would be a good feeling

Some of my AN fittings showed up toady. I actually took the Fuelab pump out of the box and was looking it over. Im a little peeved....The inlet of the pump is -10, the outlet is -8... The rep at Fuelab told me they were all -10. Im sure they are on the pump alone, but on the Vortex Air separator model, the outlet to the engine is -8. So...now im sitting on $240 worth of -10 fittings and hose, because the guy at Fuelab couldn't keep his sh!t straight...

Instead of returning 90% of the fitting and hose, I guess ill just get a -10 to -8 union.

Pain....The biggest thing that pisses me off is I had a hell of a time tracking down the -10 to 12mm fitting for the VP and had to call the mfg, then a wholesaler, then a retailer, then special order it, then pay extra for shipping...

Just bought a used BorgWarner S300GX 57/65/12 (think BD Super B) from a fellow member, should be here by the end of next week. The HY35 was not going to be conducive to my needs, so it was going to go sooner or later, and I sure as hell wasn't going to throw money at a J-Hook... I couldn't pass up the deal on the S300G. It will probably come out way down the road for something larger, but for now it will stand up to the Smarty/TST combo. Just need to clean up the compressor housing and paint it :)
