Remove the heater hose on the passenger side. Now the manual is starting to get kind of sketchy or I was getting tired.



For one thing the part that I think is correct for the passenger side heater is shown in the manual as black, my part is shiny. Is this the correct part?

This is my final post for the night. I've only really worked on it for a couple hours and everything is going pretty well so it seemed like a good stopping point for the day.

On the drivers side heater hose the only way I could get to the bolt to remove the nipple was remove the big hose, which I did. The manual says nothing about removing the radiator hose to gain access to the bolt.

IMPORTANT!!! When you remove the hose that connection that goes to the water pump, there is an oring inside that might fall to the ground or on the cross-member. Make sure there is an oring inside before reattaching the quick connect.




This is the Whipple supplied shorter heater hose nipple installed on the drivers side.

Here I need some help. The manual says to split apart where the arrow points. Its point as shown below. What do they mean by split? It may be self be explained later in the manual, so for now I removed the entire hose.

Carefully use a knife to cut the shiny plastic (the check valve is barbed and you will not be ablt to pull it off or heat it up and pull it off - I tried)

You don't want to cut the barbs or the check valve

Got back on it a this morning. Spit the booster hose and removed it after the check value per Tx-Ripper's instructions above. Used a single edge razor blade and carefully cut the hose. I had the hose removed from the truck at the brake booster so this was much easier to do on a work bench.




Reinstalled the driver side overflow & heater hose on to the shorter nipple supplied by Whipple on the drivers side. Also reinstalled the big hose and all connections that needed to be removed to have access to the bolt.

Removed the fuel line on the drivers side & the fuel pressure sensor. I only had a few drops of fuel drip out of the lines to the pressure release at the start of the tread did its job.




Removed the fuel line on the passenger side using the blue 3/8" tool that Whipple supplied with the kit.

Take the time to removed the fuel pressure sensor now before the fuel rail is pulled.

Remove the four bolts that hold on the fuel rail. Sorry the picture only shows the front.




Disconnect the connector to all 8 port injectors. I'll only show you one picture.

Too late for me...Haha...

EDIT: As a side note, this must be the lowest point in the fuel rails, because a lot of gas drained out when you remove the fuel pressure sensor, so have a rag ready to catch the fuel.
