Shoulda done your research first Becky, I offered you an F-body pan when I sold you the motor That's what I planned on using for clearance....shouldn't be too hard to come by another one though. Or contact Renegade II and see if he doesn't want it, he bought it along with a bunch of other engine parts I had and my 5.3 mock-up motor.

I think it's dealer only, but they're only $10-12 if I remember right. Or if you've got a decent salvage yard nearby you could probably pull it off a 4.8L or 5.3L 1/2 ton truck for a couple bucks. Not sure which models had oil coolers and which didn't, but my 5.3 was out of a 1999 1/2 ton 2WD and had the blockoff, where the 6.0L you're working with is out of a 2004 H2 4WD and has the cooler.

It isnt a "block off" plate. It is a cap that connects the two ports. 100% of the pressurized oil for the engine passes from one port to the other port, without those two connected the engine will get zero oil. A dealer will have the best part to put on there if that's all you want to do. Wide open design sells a replacement piece that has a couple fittings in it for easy accumulator or sending unit plumbing. It's about $45 if I remember correctly.

Just a note if you do use the f-body pan, it comes with the flow thru cover, so no oil cooler lines are needed.

There's two types, one is easy to tap (has a boss on it), the other style doesn't have much there. Depends which you have. I have the one that has a boss on it thats not drilled, so should be able to tap.

I have heard also of removing the old sending unit, which is on the top-back, cutting the top off, and drilling and tapping the base to thread in the new adapter. I might look into that.

Page 35 has a cool adapter that will allow the factory sender and has a 1/8" hole tapped for a secondary pressure switch/gauge. I made my own to accomplish this but the S&P version is cheaper/easier.

i looked at it yesterday at kevins. there sure is a bunch of little stuff on a 6.0 you need to do, that a 5.3 already has done. the other intake was a different year so there are some vacume lines that are different he has to switch around.does not look like fun!

Have you decided on your fuel system yet? I crapped out another e2000 pump last week and have been searching for an alternative since. The reason I keep losing pumps is because I was pulling it through the Jeep filter/regulator.

I finally discovered this from Novak. http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/f...uel_module.htm

It allows you to use the Jeep TJ or Cherokee pump/sending unit. The pressure is not an issue, without the Jeep filter/regulator it is capable of the 58 psi easily. My only question is volume. Anybody have any input on a non-regulated Jeep TJ/XJ pump volume? A Walbro 255LPH in-tank could be a solution, but if the Jeep pump is enough, why not use it?

It would be nice and quiet too with the in-tank vs. external pump.

Let me guess...

...you suggested using a 5.3L?

from what i have read a tj need's to be a 03 or later to have enough fuel pressure to run the 6.0. they say sometimes the earlier ones will work and sometimes they wont.

03-04 went to I think 45-48 psi.

That is why I went with a different pump, my TJ was like 40 psi. So I went with the corvette goodies..

My research shows it's actually the Jeep regulator/filter that is causing the issue, not the pump. An unrestricted Jeep pump should be more than enough (personally I am using a Walbro 255LPH in tank). Go back a few posts and look at the pics I put up. Novak now sells that kits that replaces the Jeep filter/regulator with a flow through design.

Another option would be to tap the tank with a bulkhead type fitting and drop a pick-up line in the tank with an external in-line pump.

But until you get around the Jeep filter/regulator your fuel is going to be restricted.

Edit: By "unrestricted Jeep pump" I mean no Jeep regulator; you still need a regulator to keep it in the range the engine wants/needs.
