Regulated return worth it?

If im running stock injectors/ stock turbo is a regulated return really worth it? Would I even see a performance increase just from that or would I need bigger injectors to go with it?

A regulated return IMO wouldn't be worth it for stock injectors. Have you monitored your fuel pressure at all?

Re: Regulated return worth it?

It's a good upgrade if your planning on injectors later you will not see a performance increase but it is better than the blue spring band-aid. Also it will feed constant pressure to the back of the heads that are usually starved for fuel. If you do purchase a RR I suggest trashing the banjos that come with it and doing the 6.4 banjo upgrade... They don't have check valves in them and the washers are rubber coated less leak prone than the copper ones that come with the kit. The advantage to this kit is being able to adjust your fuel pressure, I believe the stock spring puts out about 54psi... The injectors are happier at around 62psi hope this helps... Oh yeah you can do the ad150 pushing your stock pump and it will keep 190/30's happy the ad150 is much more reliable then the adII 's the difference between the ad150 and the adII is the fuel pressure regulator... Make sense?

Re: Regulated return worth it?

So basically if I want to run bigger injectors I will need the regulated return and the air dog pump which replaces the stock pump on the frame rail?

Stay far away from the airdog 2, the airdog 100/150 are fine but the airdog 2 craps out constantly, ask me how I know

Airdog 2 has a built in regulator but it's junk
Airdog 1 does not have a a regulator but it's a good pump
It does not replace your stock pump it pushes fluid into it and removed air water etc. since the ad1 does not have a regulator that's where the RR comes in. The RR also feeds fuel faster with larger lines but the bottom line is your injectors are only going to drop what the are sized for.

Alright makes sense so if I want bigger injectors I'm looking at probably over 3g's all said and done if I install it myself?

Ad150 and sump $715
6.4 banjos and washers $20
RR kit $649
Warren injectors rebuilt 175/30 about 70 rwhp
$1750 with the new solenoid that will stop stiction issues all together
This would be a great towing fuel setup for $3134.00
