I drove the Wag last night! I took it around the block and back into the garage only to find puddles of coolant forming under the driver's side. I crawled underneath and, to my horror, saw coolant seeping out of the ARP head studs. Apparently, I failed at thread sealing the damn things. After doing a little reading, I'm going to try a different thread sealer by pulling one stud at a time, adding sealer and re-torquing. Hopefully, I don't bone the head gaskets...
On the fuel front, I added a 100 micron filter between the tank and pump, and the pump immediately sounds better. I still need to get a 10 micron filter to put between the pump and engine, but I think this quality filter setup will help with my issues. I guess I'll see...
