    Default Plumbing Help

    I am re plumbing the TX with all stainless and trying to overall clean everything up. Can you guys post some pics of your plumbing. I plan on running a ball valve for temperature control. Do I need a pressure relief valve? If so should the ball valve be placed after the relief valve assuming the relief valve is mounted directly to the pump. I am open to any suggestions. I just want the setup to be as clean as possible. I plan to run a remote mount oil filter. Good idea, bad idea? Are there problems with these, is it a waste of money?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, Cody

    I like a gate valve coming off the pump to a T and then to the engine. -8 or -10 is a good hose to use. I ran -8 for my headers and -10 for my dump line. I don't have any pics sorry.

    U can check out my build thread for pics, but I ran -10 from the pump to a dead head watts brand house water psi regulator, in thru the water pump inlets and an exit hose which is also -10. No cooling issues, honestly its hard to get temp up. When I had ur boat I had -8 to a bypass,regulator like the one hi tech sells. -8 bypass overboard, inlets at the water pump, and open -8 line exiting. I run dry headers so I never need a valve to make psi to the injector lines. Nothing wrong with a remote oil filter mount. Just make sure u use at least a -10 line.

    Josh is right 10 line, 8 came on my boat and didn't work changed to 10 and no problems. I got a ball valve and the pressure valve on mine works just fine.
