I fitted the kit over the winter, and have put about 2-3K miles on since then, no issues at all so far. The really nice thing is that everything else stays stock, no wiring or hose mods.

Crusing through the mountains at 80ish and suddenly the motor dies. "Shit! Out of gas", was my first thought, then quickly figured that that was unlikely. Could it be the fuel pump? Surely not, it...
