Thanks. Let's hope its not a train. Guy doing the heads is very busy with engine builds and has back ups on his work. He gets to them when he can and I don't rush him. For the time he takes to explain things and teach me it is worth the wait because I have an excuse to speak with him. Rest of the groceries have been ready for months now. Gives me time to do other things, like angioplasty on the stock headers lol, help spec out the push rods, research cam stuff, get new badges. Shop has had a large Twin Turbo Creations box in their workspace for a while now, so I am thankful for their patience, although it is a high and handy workspace, as you can see the neumatic rotary tool next to the headers.
Lol merely a reference . Yeah time is not on our sides when it comes to these big builds as they are very demanding. But some say that patience is a virtue . Yeah definitely sounds you have gathered most of the parts to complete your build; badges are a necessity. I forgot if you mentioned this but are you going to JetHot your piping or just heatwrap it?

There's probably some flow wiz that could explain how getting all of the animal welds out of the holes actually helps flow significantly, but I dare not go all hypothetical on how much better air will flow out of the heads by eliminating a 1/4 inch of material from some of the more ample excess welds in the flanges. I'd think the crap is disruptive to whatever flows out of the exhaust port, so in my reality I choose to believe 80 hp and 20% better spooling, whoohoooo!
basket is mostly for cooling the pumps so they don't burn up, still draws from the tank.
I understand it is in the gas tank but still I'm thinking the draw out of it with this build may not give the bowl time to fully refill. But then again u haven't seen it in person. Looks like the return feeds back into it. Guess its a math game about two flows in one flow out.

I should have typed, that it is pulling from the tank and not the basket. If it starts popping pumps I'll know its not cooling and not working. Going to have them set up so the other pumps only come on when the psi calls for it. Calvin and "Hobbs", style, lol....Will still probably have to keep a good 1/4 tank on it. As it is now, they bent the fuel level sender arm enough so that when I have a 1/4 tank left it reads as empty. Tricks the owner into making sure that I dont' run it on fumes.
I know you meant I haven't seen it in person meaning u , as the pics are on my desk!
