Installation of the raptor fuel pump

Alright guys, my raptor kit showed up tonight, so i started reading though the directions and im slightly confused. Now iv hooked up a few fass fuel and air dogs kits before on different trucks, which makes me feel completly stupid for asking this. But as im reading through the directions and looking at the factory pump set-up im following all the lines and looking at the pump there are two lines into and two lines out of the factory pump. Now i know that one is the pressure line and the other one is the return line. And installing the fuel supply line is not an issue, but if i remove the factory pump what happens with the return line. I hope im just missing something?

Here is a link to pump instructions

It appears with that pump, you just keep the factory return line to the tank.

Re: Installation of the raptor fuel pump

you have to link both ends of the return line that went in and went out of the pump together. All i did was cut the ends off and installed a couple fittings and made a braided stainless line that linked the return line back together. Here's the fittings you'll need....Earl s Performance 165056ERL - Earls Performance AN to Tube Adapter Fittings - Overview - SummitRacing.com
. You'll need two of them. I can get pics of how i did mine. My fuel system consists of a low pressure FASS pump system pushing fuel to a fuelab pump where the factory pump was located. I made all of my fuel lines of braided stainless and anodized fittings. Only thing stock about my fuel system is the fuel tank.

Re: Installation of the raptor fuel pump

Thats what i figured but wanted to double check, so i talked to pureflow first thing today, and come to find out there install manual is incorrect, where it says you can remove the the factory line and pump. so that made me fell a little better. Also had 1 line that was in my kit that was wrong. So i have a new line coming from them in the morning,
I also just found a gentleman about 20 mintures away from me that can make the quick disconnect flare on the line, so im going to have him make me a line with the factory style flares on it and just put in place of where the pump wasand still use the factory quick connects.

Here's what it looks like. This pic is where the braided line hooks up to the factory return line going back to the tank. The other end of the braided line is hooked to the factory return line coming from the engine. I just linked both ends of the hard factory return line together with the braided line and fittings where the factory pump was.
