Try plugging or pinching off the return line and see if the pressure comes up. this will allow you to confirm it's not the filter. Make SURE you don't have a leak/stuck injector etc that's bleeding off the pressure. Confirm you've got 12+ volts at the pump.

I'm running a tank setup from Rock Valley, the fuel pump only has an inlet and outlet. I was having a fuel pressure bleeding off issue with the TPI also. I'm starting to think that it's the pump. I found out that since I bought a pump for a TPI originally that it only has 47 psi not the 58 that an LS needs. So either way, I need a new pump.

I get so fed up with this car, if its not one thing, it's another. Even after the fuel issue is sorted out, I still need exhaust, a new swaybar, alignment, interior. A long list of expensive stuff. I just want to drive it!

I know how you feel. I get that way sometimes.
Good luck with the rest of your build.

I don't think putting the gas can in the nova will do it, you need to pour the gas into the tank too.



(sorry Mike, couldn't resist)


Intake looks good. Hoping you get this sorted out soon.

Sure you could. I give you $100 for it, and I'll come get it out of your hair. Tommorow. I'm serious.

Iv'e never been as far into a build as you have and I'm sure it's frustrating as hell.
But I'm just as sure that all will come out well in the end.
Best of luck wicked ride by the way it will be worth the trouble you're going through i'm sure.
