Overboard probably a little but less weight in the valvetrain is always a good thing right.

Due to a trans failure my winter projects got an early start, I am installing a vacuum pump getting the intake ported that we didn't get done last year due to time constraints and buying a pair of Pro-Systems Dominators. Also gonna work on the weight.

are you going with a belt driven vacuum or a elec. one see alot of elec. one at the track. watch your build this year and you really put out alot work on the truck hope it terns out for you

Belt driven unit, the Morose 3 vane looks like it will get the nod. I think next year I should finally see what this thing is capable of. I got alot of problems fixed that held me back and working on the rest.

those electric smog pumps dont pull much vac at all, like 4-5" max.

moroso 3 vane still going strong on mine after 10 plus years..............

the electric pumps work good to remove moisture from an alky motor but thats about it.

ive been running the same combo for 4 years i running 11.40s to 11.70s would like to run 11.20s to 11.50s. think its doable with a few tweets new tires taller going to have the valves cut back new valve springs remove swaybar on front if that not working ill spray a 25hp hit
