hey whats up fellas...saw the pics ...looks like ya runnin some top notch shit..here is what i would do differently first i would run the batteries along the back ..as far back and as high as you can ...then i would lay the pump down in other words you have it front to back i would lay it down side ways so that the check valve shoots straight out to the front of the car...basically the idea is to not have any 45 or 90 degree angles..let the fluid get to the cylinders without any bends ..you would have to redo the rack and maybe make the front pump mount up n down so that the pump lays side ways ...and then spin the tank around so the fill screw still sits on top....alot of guys just stand up the pump ..but that just eventually shoots oil into your motor...oh ya and then out of the check instead of runnin a tee run a 1/2 y block with the top hole in the center for the slow down then the dump...and the end of the y is where ya want to run two#8 hoses from the trunk to the hood to your front cylinders...dont y it up front all ya get is speed but no power ...pressure but not enough volume...i use hi n low cylinders but any one of the bigger rammed cylinders will do...i'm not sure what springs ya got or how tall they are but looks like they arent to small ...got it bangin very nicely...but runnin this way ..will get ya up faster...i know it seems like like alot to do when you already have the rack in there...but you need the batteries in the back to use the counter wieght to help ya reach the pivot faster...oh ya and i also run a 6 inch ram in my 8 inch cylinder case ..this allows 2 inches of fluid to sit in the cylinder at all times ...makes for a faster hit.....hope to help...got any ? mail me..would be glad to help..

( and the reason i feel i need a nother dump for my other pump is for the 3/4 15 gpm check i will be adding..that would make two ..for one adex..im not wanting a funnel effect on my return ...i think it would affect response time...not to sure still got to guinne pig it...have any ideas bout this..let me know...?)

well srroy to inform you but your wrong, its like this you bleed the air from your system, so there is oil already at the top of your cylinder, there for it will react exactly the same as if you have a 6 inch ram in a 8inch case,


now about the "other dump"

if oyur building a setup for hopping you only want ONE dump weather your running single gate or double gate ;)

thnx 4 the advice.. the reason my batts are like that was because i wasn't going to buld a hopper. i had them that way in my last caddy
[across the back and my pump was sideways] I also had my dump up front under the hood witch realy does help it creates a cycle instead of the fluid going back and forth + keep it a little cooler..


I just wanted to see what everyone else was doing...


ohh yea I'm doing a full frame right now. because I can't stay away from hopping+ alot of chrome..
