I run the breather open and the pcv through a catch can to the blower inlet. You're going to need a catch can, PD blowers make a LOT of crankcase pressure. Good luck with it. You way ahead of the curve by never bothering with the optimizer. Somebody's been listening!
That truck is going to be an animal out of the hole, as if the 5.9 ZJs aren't already.
Thanks man, just the info I needed! I was a little worried about it, something didn't seem right so I am glad I asked. I am thinking about maybe using the air compressor filter as a simple catch can... Cheap and I don't have to wait for it to show up, can pick it up in the hardware store. One of the guys on my forum is running that setup.
As far as optimizer goes, that thing would've been a pain to wire up, I got tired of reading about how to wire it, much less actually doing it. SO bigger injectors and SCT made more sense, especially since I already had the sct tuner.
Goal of my build is to lower my 0-60 times as much as possible. I am not much of a track guy, I will take a freeway onramp over that anyday.
So after SC is done and properly tuned, she is getting 4.10 gears and 27" tires. My shop is also building forged 408 for me, so hopefully that will be done sometimes soon.
You think my KB will be a lil too small for it??? It is only 1.5 I do believe.
great setup man looking great does it run at all yet fuel pump and all installed yet etc?
I haven't had a chance to throw in fuel pump yet, the walbro I bought was shipped with a wrong install kit, so I had to wait. Right install kit just came in today, so Thursday she is getting a new pump and injectors. Hopefully by the time that is done my 2 bar map and my drive belt will show up.
Had to use a shorter belt, the one that came with it from Dodge Ram was too long. I need one 106" long, so ordered Gates 7rib K071056
. Also had to order carbon fiber hood with 3" cowl to clear the SC outlet and the air hat. Should be sometimes next week. I will post some pics once it shows up.

Thanks man, yeah I agree about the optimizer, I just didn't trust that thing enough, SCT is definitely the way to go.
BTW my kit came with 2 cammed idler pulleys... One goes on the snout bracket, all good there, where does the second one go???? I have the diagram from KB, but I am not clear about where to mount the damn thing....
Also the SC pulleys that came with it? One is big one is small, are they supposed to be like 6# and 10# or am I way off? I thought I saw the formula somewhere here to calculate the boost based on the crank pulley size, but I can't find it for the life of me...
