Depends how much HP you want to make with the truck. There are basically 3 different types of VP's; HO, SO and Monster/Dragon Flow/Hot Rod, whatever you want to call it.

If you plan to make fairly good HP with your truck, I would check to see if it has an SO pump in it. I haven't heard too much about the Monster Pumps or Dragon Flows as of yet to say they are beneficial or not.

Down side is most HR & HO VP44 and does not accept electronic enhancements as well as the SO pumps...

It all depends on what you planing to do for HP/TQ numbers...

I like my dragon fire vp. It has lots of power with no electronics.

Those Dragon fires sound pretty sick. I bet with the right turbos and some NO2 you could see 10's with a vp truck with a little bit of time and tuning. It would be awesome together on fuel, or even just low 11's. Keep posted on how yours does with electronics and that single charger. What kind of RPM can you get out of it? I'd love to see one with a redline.

Will do.

So far I have one run in(w/o electronics)a ran a 12.83. I am going to Rockingham, NC next Saturday for a NADM event, it will be tapped then. I am hoping for around 11.6-11.7, but we will see.

I tapped it today and drove around the block, it does not feel like there is that much difference between off and 5x5

Something is wrong... Did you check for +12V at the tap point with the key on?

If you use a stealth plate or injection pump plate you never have to guess at it...

I skinned about a 1/2" section of the wire, took a tiny flat head and made a space in between the pump wire so the comp wire could go through it. Like this.

Then wrapped the wires together and soldered and covered the liquid electrical tape.

I just went out and check it with voltmeter. I unplugged the comp box and checked it at the plug and got a 12 volts.
