i am 95% complete on my remote turbo install...i seem to be having trouble with getting my fuel setup right...i have a vortech fmu and an external inline fuel pump...i dont think i have plumbed it right cuz when i kick the pump on the engine spits and spudders with too much fuel...

i tied into the line from the gas tank and ran that to the external fuel pump...then from the EFP to the FMU and from the FMU back to the fuel line to the rails...i noticed on powerdynes fuel pump (same as mine) that there seems to be more plumbing...can any1 point me in the right direction

do you still have the link i sent u with the vortech setup? or better yet, pull the fuel off and take a pic. what disk is in the fmu? hooked up to a vac source yet? it kinda sounds like the fuel isnt being regulated, maybe skipping the fmu?

who needs those stinking directions lol...i am slowly figuring it out but i had it totally wrong...

i dont see a vent line on here...it looks like on the dakota and durangos that there is no return line...that it may be built into the fuel pump setup by vortech or powerdyne...i am slowly getting it there lol

i got it! lol i finally found the right picture from the link...it works good...doesnt look like it would but it does...everything is complete now...i do keep popping intake connections off but i think i got them all tight enuff now...had to replace the flimsy TB to air hat gasket with a better hard gasket...i opened it up tonight and got 8 psi and then when i let off i found another weak link in the intake tube connection...guess my bov is slow to open...it sounds wicked!...

its attached less than a foot from the TB tho...i will get pics up on a new thread in the next day or so...thanks all for the help
