Haven't done that yet. I was in the hospital for 4 days with pancreatitis,
another week to recover
enough to do much of anything, then been back to work for the last 2 days. Too
much to do, too
little time, and the Vette's about a 90 mile round trip away. If it goes to
someone else I'm not
going to be too disappointed, but if it's still there next week when I'm on
vacation and the
weather's good I'll probably try to go look at it.
I sold my 99. 3 lift pumps and two vp44 injection pumps in 46k miles.
(about $1300 a pop for the vp installing myself) I had a fuel pressure
gauge and kept a close eye on it too . glad i kept my old p-pumped 12
valve 95 it's twice the truck.Just turn the key and go like mad, never
any issues. if it has the vp system i'd run away.....but that's just
me.(I'm a old fart that hates computer controlled vehicles) old 95
gets better fuel mileage with a 0 fuel plate,100 hp injectors and
super b turbo AND has twice the power. only issues with the 94-98's is
the auto trans is barely up to the task of a stock motor when the
trans is stock. good trans and billet converter (about 4k) and the
truck will last forever. Newer auto tranny's are no better they need
Engines on the 94-98 is all mechanical control, fuel mileage is
controlled by the skinny pedal. I get 19 round town and have gotten as
high as 26 on road trips.
I am definitely biased when it comes to a twelve valve but if i
were gonna spend that much money on another truck I just couldnt see
buyin one with a fuel system even Cummins admitted was a stop gap.
