Default More work on the Pirate Monster, and more advice please.

Hi guys, If you've read my previous threads, you'll know my truck had a broken back diff and broken front cvd shaft. Well, they're both fixed (the cvd shaft was tricky, man are those parts are small!) The planetary gears in the diff were chewed, but its now swimming in 7000wt silicon diff oil and in an aluminium housing.

I've ordered a new tuned pipe and some fuel line. I've read on this forum about the benefits of a longer fuel line (greater run time when truck is upside down 'cos newbie driver aint that good yet!!) But I've also seen something about the line that goes from the exhaust to the fuel tank. How long should that be, and what advantages/disadvantages are there for different lengths?

Once again I request your comments (thank the Lord for this forum!)
