    All,
    I have never had my PS work very well - after very light work in 4x4 it will go away entirely. Once in awhile it will even try to spool to one side or the other all on its own :eek1:

    Here is the setup I will have in a month or so: 37" MTRs on wheels with 3.5" BS (going from 4.25 to 3.5 BS will hurt the situation even more).

    Should I be able to run a pump and box combo that will power this setup or do I need to go to hydro assist?

    I have an AGR box at the moment, probably why I have had so much trouble. How do you think this box would react to the DIY pump mods?

    I already have a cooler installed, did not help.

    Sorry if this is the 5028th time you have seen this topic - please point me to relevant posts :wink1:

    You should be able to pull the fitting out of the back of the pump without removing the pump from the vehicle (unless I am missing something different you are doing).
