    Just read your most recent threads. What was the reason you removed the A/C system? Doesn't it get hot in NY during the summer? o_O Sure did when I lived there. Just curious.

    It was removed to clear "future" Stage-1 Aluminum Heads, and the rest of the system was just dead weight. This is part of my original plan.

    I really appreciate your view of this "saga." Have a great weekend.

    Good Night, ALL.

    This is an idea that popped in my head a few minutes ... regarding a YouTube Subscriber's comment about my Mechanical Fuel Pressure Regulator.

    Hey, Joe Jackson. Your comment got me to thinking ... and I did a bit of research. I feel that both my Mechanical Fuel Pressure Gauges give the low 3-PSI of Fuel Reading, is because the Regulator and Gauge "before" the Regulator are @ 3 inches over the Intake Manifold ... having the heat affect them.

    Also, my Mechanical Fuel Pressure Gauge "before" the Regulator reads a max of 15-PSI of Fuel ... while the Carter "P4601-HP" Electric Fuel Pump has a FLOW OUTPUT of 14-16-PSI of Fuel ... with 50-GPH.
    Now ... when I factor in my TA Performance "Street/Strip" Mechanical Fuel Pump on the motor ... "imagining" a Fuel FLOW OUTPUT between 6-8 PSI of Fuel ... and with @ (guessing blindly, Joe) 14-GPH (Supports combinations up to 500 HP) ... I imagine my TRUE Fuel Pressure being somewhere @ 22-PSI "before" my Holley Fuel Pressure Regulator.

    The Mechanical TA Pump is on 100% of the time the 455 is running, whereas the Carter Electric Fuel Pump is called to duty via when needed/Toggle Switch ... ergo; @ 22-PSI of Fuel.

    With that, Joe ... I feel that my "Aeromotive15632" Mechanical Fuel Pressure Gauge's (liquid-filled) rated reading LIMIT of 15-PSI ... just is "sufficient" enough to actually read/record that capacity of Fuel Pressure.

    I'm going to continue researching this SAGA of mine, Joe. Have a great week ahead.

    Liquid filled gauges are only accurate for till they get hot then they will read very low
