fuel system upgrades

Hey guy had a few questions in regards to fuel supply and or upgrades. I had posted the truck felt like it had lost power. My first thought was fuel pressure was dropping but I didn't have a gauge. Well gauges came in today I got them all hooked up an fired the truckup. At idle around 53 to 55 psi, while driving under normal conditions 45 -50 mph had 48 -50 psi. But when I Get into throttle a little she drops to 20 psi. At wide open throttle droppd to 4 psi. So now I'm looking at what I should do replacement upgrade wise. I'm just running a 58v. Ficm, intake, exhaust, and matts srl tune. No plans of right now for injectors but maybe a set off 190 or so down the road. I guess my question is what would you reccomend For my situation.

Re: fuel system upgrades

New fuel filters and an updated fuel pressure spring...see what that does first. Maybe 6.4 banjos.

Updated spring, 6.4 banjos , and a lift pump to keep pressure at a constant minimum, AirDog II 165gph for example.

Re: fuel system upgrades

You can follow their ^^^ advice and spend 80+ On something that could be useless or when can pass back and forth a few questions and answers and get this figured out.
Where did you install the sensor at? How old or how many miles are on your filters? When you change fuel filters do you change 2 filters? I need you to answer all this.
A "lift pump" is not even worth thinking about. These guys just post up throw parts at it, there's a little more to it than that.

Re: fuel system upgrades

I dont know that the airdog2 is the best choice. I look more into a different solution for reliability and constant pressure. I'm on my 3rd. airdog in 15 month. They just sending me new pumps and we cant find a solution for the problem, not bashing here, just my personel experience. Fuel-lab or Aeromotive is my next step I'm doing.

Aeromotive after the stock pump. I took my stock pump out and Im solely running an a-1000 on my DD lol. holds pressure like a champ I know several people doing this, Jess warren, Brian Jelich, few others. Some say you need the marine grade a1100 to run it without a supplying lift pump. im here to tell you theres no need and the a1000 works fine. make sure you have a water/fuel seperator/filters setup before it as well.
Do you have any pic of your lift pump setup....im working on building mine myself.

Re: fuel system upgrades

i auctually went to jegs and picked up a a1000 aeromotive pump, regulator, and a filter base with fuel filter and water seperator, but when i got to reading though it, it wanted 5/8 fuel line, and said it needed a supply pump. SO i took it back and just ordered the raptor 150hp. Im going to run the filter set up i picked up over a jegs with it.

Is the a big different in the 6.4 banjo vs the 3 hole after market ones for the 6.0. I know the stock 6.0 have the 2 holes at 3mm each and i beleive the aftermarket ones have 3 holes that are 4.5 mm. does any body know the size of the holes on the 6.4 banjos?
