Default vortech install pics

well i finnally got some batteries. install is almost done im just stuck at the fuel pump. tune is on its way, and probably a couple hours worth of little stuff to get finished. im also stuck on the belt, the tensioner wont budge so i might need a new one. or maybe i just aint using it right.

the puller is going to have to work, you have to close it, push in and push the fuel line in hard. looks like you have some rust so its gonna take a little force to get it off

Looks familar, other than the aftercooler.

BTW, the fuel things, I had to disconnect it at the filter, and what I did was slide the disconnector on the line and then used a adjustable pliers to butt up next to it (the jaws were over but NOT clamped onto the line). Then, I pushed toward the filter to disconnect the line. I had to wobble it back and forth a bit to make it work.

i was pissed i couldnt use the powerpipe that i got with it, and i had to use the connector from the power pipe to get the intake setup right. the intake is a pain in the ***. its not even mounted the way they instructed me because it is impossible. i wonder if there is a difference in fenderwells between 96-04. ill figure it out eventually but for now it is tight and solid so ill let it slide.

Soak the inside of those fuel couplers with PB blaster, move and rotate them, keep blowing in Blaster, then try pushing the two lines together, they should move in a 1/32nd if they are free. After you have freed the coupler, insert the tool, push the tool and line together that 1/32", and pull apart quickly. Those fittings tend to corrode with age, I've seen some nasty fuel filter couplers when i lived in New England, same deal.

I was just going to say I've run into some ugly ones like that at work. PB blast, a few minutes and then more wiggling usually does the trick.
