its on the front of the pump. I will allow more rack travel for more fueling. Nice cheap upgrade.

its a 2095 rack plug. they were used on mack trucks that ran the p7100 injection hence the nick name "mack plug". it allows max fuel under max load. if you have a 215 pump with a 5 speed. they are pretty much useless because the rack is already allowed more travel. if not its an ok upgrade but there is some other adjustment that would need to be made to get the most out of it

the foot needs to be done to allow for the extra travel the plug allows for. The washers are to help clear up some smoke. You could also do away with the afc all together.
