Do you think some of it could be your tune?

Not saying that it is the problem. But a performance tune ( a different timing curve, different rev limits) stuff like that might help

LS engines need 55-60 PSI. 40 PSI is running lean, possibly lean enough to do engine damage, but certainly lean enough to make it run bad.

Thanks for the exhaust pictures, looks great.

No problem, and thanks. He did an awesome job on the custom Y pipe. Ill try to snag a closer pic of it.

Speaking of fuel, I grabbed a "vented" gas cap but I am still building quite a bit of pressure in the tank (a lot of pressure releases when I remove it). It is still starting fine though. Think it will cause any problems? Panda mentioned his friend's engine being damaged from it.

It does. It ran from the charcoal canister to the tank, but since nothing was going to the canister I pulled it and plugged the vent line down by the tank to keep contaminants out. It is a tiny hose, do you think it would be ok to take the plug out and let it vent on its own?

mine was like that since i got it. i never had an issue with it. now i have a fuel cell. and i hooked my breather up wrong and the tank pressurized when it got hot out and drained the entire thing onto the lawn... sucked but it was funny as hell. my jeep hates me so much that it siphoned itself

Mine just goes up to my engine compartment. I'm going to put a little filter on it to keep crap out but I wouldn't plug it

I was thinking the same thing, but just couldnt think if a filter that small. I guess I could be ghetto and use a little piece of cloth and a rubber band

The fuel tanks need to breathe in and breathe out freely or you guys will have more stories to tell to add to the above mentioned ones. The thing with fuel tank vent lines is that if you don't run them though a charcoal canister you will occasionally smell gas when the tank breathes lol. The little filters on the end will keep some dust out depending on your location but won't "filter out" the gas smell.

As stated above, the motors both the "
LS and Hemi's, need every bit of a reliable 59 psi to run correctly. If you run on to low fuel pressure you will burn up your engine. Maybe not immediately but sooner or later it's gonna happen.

Randon did you remove the evap solenoid from the stick 5.3 set up? The evap stuff pulls vapor from the tank back into the intake manifold.... But your tank still needs a vent LOL

Jim, yes I did remove the Evap Purge from the Vortec. It was actually keeping me from closing the hood.

I don't know what kind of power numbers I have. Wayne did say that he messed with the tune power wise but I don't think that he goes all out if you are running a stock tranny. At least he said something like that over on Pirate.

I just know that it squats like hell when I step on it
