ELIMINATOR Live monitoring can save u lots of trouble I agree

DPD06 I regret not going with the in dash fuel pressure gauge. Probably do one later on, you did it right the first time. I have one on the fuel rail but with DBW really takes two to rev and see what the pressure does. And even then it doesn't really measure under load. I'd much rather have live monitoring.

ELIMINATOR Yes they are a bit on the high side but these meters will get your attention long before anything gets damaged.. They pay for them-self. Trust me. You can diagnose a problem very quickly with these gauges. For an example, I needed constant 60 psi of fuel pressure, but when I put the hammer down, fuel pressure would drop causing the fuel gauge to flash. That right there told me my pump wasn't up for the job. Awesome gauges!!! Try you tube for Autometer elite series gauges

jherrington Holy hell those gauges are expensive!

DPD06 Yes, they're saying that the only restriction in my exhaust side now are the headers. They're saying the sandersons are good for a standard 5.3 but with the 6.0 cammed and ported they recommend 1.75 primaries and 3" collectors at a minimum. I'm running a 3" y exhaust set up to a single exit so with you having true duals you may not have the same restriction. Here's the exhaust they ran for mine, very clean and all stainless. 3" all the way from the collectors. For state inspection we have visual and sniffer so I had to use a hi flow cat and used a magnaflow muffler. Attachment 758209

Debating on whether or not I should pick up a set of stock rears for a more accurate number. I've read some threads where some tuners recommend stock tires on the dyno.
ill be using 37's when i go for the re-tune !!!!

Since you're already where I want to be I don't see the need for the header change.

Are you still running your original gear/tire combo?

Fattire what's your gear/tire?

Mine is geared at 4.88 and I'm running 35" MT's...wondering if I'll want to regear later.

yeah same gear set up.37in and 4.56's
Are they recommending you to swap out your sanderson shortys that are 1.75 ?

I'm just wondering where the difference is coming from or if you have more top end and perhaps I get more earlier and less up top.

Nice build BTW!
i have true dual set up, no cats, ill get video and /or pics soon as i make it back to the beach. I am in the gulf as of now
