Are you worried about fuel volume at all with 3/8" vs the typical 1/2" line or is the image you for the brand? Looking on Amazon they do make a 10an to 2x 8an. Has me thinking about re-plumbing my fuel supply and returns now....... I know the inlet on the pump is obviously smaller than that but I'm wondering if the fuel volume directly at the inlet may help.
Not really, being a street truck still I didn’t want a bunch of lines running all over. If it was a competition only truck I would have done it different.

Also had to replace my radiator because of a leak. I ended up buying a all aluminum from G-Plus. It looks identical to Mishimoto. Quality seems good, I guess we will see. It was under $200.

Glad to get you fixed up on those arms! I'm curious to see how that radiator does, never heard of them before.

did you check for electrolysis? my truck had a decent amount till i found my ground issue with my sub amp.

curious how it holds up too. Ron Davis was telling me how much the mishimotos were flexing in the trucks, causing them to crack. Which is interesting because thats why my ron davis cracked lol. he atleast added more structure to stop it though on the new one.

No I didn’t, I think old radiator failed because of the heat and pressure when the water pump failed. The seal was leaking between plastic end tank and aluminum core.

I have a mishimoto radiator sitting in the scrap pile because it started leaking. We replaced it with a stock radiator from GM.

Interestingly enough, my stock radiator made it 15 years and it was replaced just for more additional cooling. Never did check electrolysis on it. The Ron Davis I did and was showing 2v through the damn thing while running. Found the amp ground was crap and the body to frame ground was undersized for the rest of the aftermarket crap I put in. Changed those and dropped to .1v while running.

The two weren’t related to my failure but figured it’s worth looking at on all aluminum rads
