Also, it looks like you have a TINY inline fuel filter.
The C5 regulator has a filter built-in. You can skip the tiny restrictive inline filter.

Yeah I just looked at the pics. Your feed/return connections are backwards on the regulator.

95% chance that you have the feed/return backwards on the C5 regulator. The return is the one in the middle, the feed goes on the outside.

Why do people never call manufacturers and ask them? Do they think random people on the internet will know more than they do?

5w-30 is perfectly fine for a fresh rebuild.
For your average turbocharged 150-200k mile engine, the benefits of 15w-40 or 20w-50 aren't really about lubrication.

Same engine I believe in both articles. 475 horsepower with the stock gen 3 truck intake and 502 horsepower with the FAST intake. Damn good numbers for an extremely mild 5.3

The Edelbrock seems to be exactly what you were after. If you rev high enough, then your RPM after every shift will still be in an area where the Edelbrock makes more power than the TBSS intake. ...

800 at the wheels or flywheel?

Stock crank and heads will do either.

You can try them, but when I tested 200k mile springs against replacement stock springs, there was a significant decrease in seat pressure and spring rate.
Worst case, you just have trouble making...

This is one reason that I won't run a pan with a bypass in it. The oil was a little thick for the bearing clearances, but not enough to do this.

New LS6 springs are only like $60.

Springs soften up over time. If the stock springs are high mileage, its not worth messing with them.

The Edelbrock Pro-Flo is my personal favorite cathedral intake for the time being.
Almost identical power/torque to the Hi-ram. 1 piece design, slightly better hood clearance, can be found cheaper.

Yeah, autocorrect.

Most of them block some access, yeah. The ICT plate allows you to keep the flywheel/flexplate on the engine while its bolted to the stand.

The only test I've seen on the BTR intake was against an LS6 intake. They only revved it out to like 6400, but the LS6 had the BTR intake beat everywhere.
They all become circumstantial anyway....

I have a similar sized cam in a 4.8. With a decent converter it will be fine. Mine makes power way up over 7k. I'd expect your 6800-7200 shift point to be about right.

Hobbs switch is fine.
You can feed from the stock oil pressure sensor behind the intake manifold, or from the fitting above the oil filter. Either works.
