  While getting the pump rebuilt on the pickup, I ran across something 
interesting.  I had a TD pump on the shelf that I decided to try since
I had to send mine BACK over to get the throttle shaft set back 
correctly (it idled at about 4K).
  I couldn't get the shelf pump to prime up so we decided to drag it 
until it started.  After a half mile maybe, I had heat coming out of 
the heater!  Wow, I hardly get warm air that quickly with the 
pickup running!  I thought it interesting.

  When I got the pump back and on, I hardly have as much power 
as my NA rabbit!  :-(  I told them to set it up for power too!  I 
don't think it went over 600F EGT either!  I turned up the fueling 
a little and it helped but it's really anemic while cold.  :-P  On 
the plus side it smells like it's burning much cleaner than before 
the rebuild/re-seal and it does sound really good too.  Just going 
to have to re-tune it for more power.  
  (Because I couldn't afford to spend the $500 more to have Giles 
rebuild it is why)  ;-)
