VSS and Fuel Pump

I am trying to do my homework by reading this entire thread, I am up to page 55. I have only succeeded in confusing myself further to this point. I am installing an 06 (what I've discovered to this point) LR4 4.8 to my existing new AX-15 from Novak and my existing 241J Rubicon T-Case. What is the best way to install or have the VSS needed by the 4.8? I am seeing bore out the existing t-Case speed sensor location, install an adapted tail cone to the tcase or even run without it?? What's the best?

As for fuel, my 05 LJ pump makes 60+ psi (proven by a gauge on the fuel rail) but I need to pass emission in Collin County, Texas. Will a GM fuel pump assembly w emissions stuff fit in my LJ tank? I've seen a lot about booster pumps and custom made adapter rings..... What's the best??

Thanks for the help!!

Thanks for the suggestions, I am still considering all of my options. When you say 'We", are you a part of one of the companies you talk about? I sure am not trying to offend anyone here with sharing my thoughts and discoveries.

DuckHunter5.7 little belt info for anyone that is going to use the same ac brackets and r4 compressor as i am. the belt novak calls for is gates p/n k061099 (6pk2793) that belt for some reason was just a little too long. gates p/n k061093 (6pk2774) 109-3/4" is the belt i ended up using, it has my tensioner right on the max of the second line its supposed to be in between. those are the only 2 belts that are close that we could find. the brackets are holley 20-140 and 21-3. this might be posted already but i never could find it.

I didn't even think to check Blue Torch, they make great diff cover kits. I'll check them out. I am keeping the AX-15 which solid mounts to the skid plate so this may be too much flex in conjunction with the solid trans mounting.

j20brett Are you talking about the bypass of the heater core lines instead of plugging them? Are you running a thermostat? What fan? Mine will idle in 100 deg heat at 195 and have the fan kick on and off every 5-10 minutes. Never sees over 200 on the highway. Assuming you plumbed in the steam port right?

It'll run for about 5 seconds then shut off (I assume because of air starvation but i'm really not sure). I have 2 codes for the pedal assembly, P1125 and P2125. The PCM system does see pedal input (verified by OBD2 scan tool), but it does not move the TB (I assume the TB should move with power). The TB does do its startup "check" (it moves a little and clicks).

Where should I start with the troubleshooting?
I had almost the exact same problem, turned out to be a bad throttle body.

Now I just need to solve my extreme overheating issues I'm running the Novak LS swap radiator and it won't come close to keeping the heat in check, granted, its been over 105 degrees lately here in Phoenix. 65 mph down the freeway today it got to 244* before I pulled off. Gilbert Speed Sports added a water pump bypass to the Jeep this morning that they say is necessary as I don't have the Silverado surge tank. Made no difference anywhere but my wallet.
