redcliffe dyno says 1 holley blue with 1/2 line doesn't work, you think it does?
I would like to run 1/2 for later on, but not if it means I need 2 blues to make it work!
I havn't got the money for a cell or anything, this is just something I have come upon because of AF ratio on dyno. I am trying to get this doen cheap! i mean...
You can't do anything cheap. Just do it right the 1st time. Cost me about $800 to have 1/2" line, electric pump and presure regulator installed inc the pickup modified
Unscrew the pickup from the top of the tank (remove the plate in boot to get to it and remove the lines first) and take it to someone who like a radiator repair shop who can run another tube in to the fitting 4 u. You can either replace the existing one with a larger one or add another one and then join these two smaller pipes together with a T fitting for your 1/2" line.
There have been plenty of threads on this topic with lots of pics so do a search and you will see what others have done. Not much room to mount the pump on an XD/E. They put mine in the left side bootwell. Best place for regulator is forward of the carby so fuel is being pulled by gravity when accelerating. Also, don't mount the regulator on the engine where it heat transfers the temp into the fuel - colder the fuel stays the better. I put some of that reflective shield stuff that slips over the pipe where the line travels above the headers - see pic
I mounted my reg on the back of the D/S shock tower where it is out of the way and almost parallel with the carb. I can still adjust the reg without fouling the brake master cyl
