Re: Mongos 81 c30

Top notch job! I also like the fuel pressure gauge tucked up in there.

That pickup turned out super clean!

That's a nice build. Interested in how you routed the fuel lines ?

Re: Mongos 81 c30

Yes that's the area I was interested in . On mine Its a bit tight there with headers and the column shift linkage. How close is the hose to the headers ? what fuel reg are you using ?

Re: Mongos 81 c30

Nice clean swap. I like the valve cover.....cover, is that what you'd call them. Anyway, they do a great job of giving you that clean look. Mike

Re: Mongos 81 c30

A little. I have been focusing on getting the 72 Burb ready for HRPT long haul after taking a couple weeks off to decompress. Plus getting the mowers etc ready to go for this season.....gotta get cracking on it though!

Re: Mongos 81 c30

Cool truck and it looks great! I always wondered how well a 6.0/4L80E combo would work in a 3/4 - 1 ton square body. 16mpg is pretty awesome for a 1t dually!

What year NV4500? Mine is the early version with the external slave hanging off the passenger side of the bellhousing.
