I have had to replace the oring twice in 3 years of "heavy" use.

I have looked at the Nova gun, but for a bill, damn that's a little steep, though I do like the white plastic end cap to keep the tip of the gun at the perfect level in the tank for maximum efficency-but $100. Don't get me wrong I love my plus4's, and P5 and pipes but I don't think I can spend $100 on a fuel gun when the p/l works just dandy.
So where can I find these o rings? I know you said a main but where there? Are they for the fuel gun? or something else? then you used the shoe goo to seal all the way around where the plastic meets the aluminum end? thanks for the advice.

Monty, I've never seen a nova gun but this sport is 'only a $100' ing me to death! As was said when I can drive better I'll work on speeding up my pitstops. for now I'm working on fuel mileage... Make less pit stops= faster than fast pit stops!LOL!

High temps = lower air density = rich tune vs. normal air temps.

It has something to do with the pressure line, some say to route it (loop it) around both sides of the fuel tank.
