Maybe the aftermarket A/C systems are made in the UK with the factory British cars as no UK cars ever seem to have truly cold air that blasts out the vents. Lol.
Your truck has lots of jewelry I see馃憤. Is that a fuel pressure regulator mounted to the front of your engine?

Yessir, set at 58psi. Return side off the fuel rails of the Eddy EFI. Figured I might as well put it someplace easy to get to.

It runs ok for a mild 360 if you twist its tail. Barks the 35's in 2nd.
I got scared for a second seeing 58psi but then I calmed down after you said it's EFI. Lol. Nice, I can't wait to bark my new 35's. I just got my new yoke today for my driveshaft. Soon I'll be rollin on my new Dana 60 and 70's! 馃憤

Are you running a factory flexplate or something aftermarket like a B&M? I know the B&M is much stronger. Also if the flexplate is springing back towards the block then could you have thicker mounts welded to the torque converter where it bolts to the flexplate?

It's a modified ATI Chevy trans to Mopar engine swap piece. There were no flexplates available when I had this hairbrained idea of putting an 2015 5.7 Hemi 8HP70 8 spd behind an LA small block.

JVX Racing supposedly now has flexplates for LA, Magnum with a tone ring and big block kits. Only a couple years late to the party.
