6.0 upgrade lift pump

Looking to help my fuel pressure on big tunes my pressure drops to 15-20 psi at wot. On my smaller tunes it always stays between 50-60 at wot.

I am wanting to put in a sump and a aeromotive or fuelab pump to feed the stock HFCM but never really seen anyone set something up like that. Seems like aftermarket pumps last a lot better it high flow low psi setups so if I fed my stock pump with plenty of fuel it should keep up and have a reliable setup. Thoughts or advice would be great.

My other option would be to run a ad2 at 10psi and have feed a a1000 to push the 65 psi but would rather not spend that much if not necessary.

Re: 6.0 upgrade lift pump

There are a lot of different setups that seem to be working well now, if you go fuelab or A1000 you can remove the stoc pump completely with those setups. Also might wanna look into a stock 6.7 pump from the new powerstrokes, the maryland guys used it on a test truck they built and If holdi pressure even with 285s. A lot of different ways you can go I would just steer away from the AD2 that's the worst pump you can buy, a lot of different ways to go just depends on how much you wanna spend.

Re: 6.0 upgrade lift pump

I'd go with the A1000 and get rid of the stock pump. Filters are a lot cheaper that way.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust syatem, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Re: 6.0 upgrade lift pump

What you guys use for filters once you ditch the stock pump? I like that I know filtration is good with the stock pump and it's reliable I've heard way to many stories about pumps failing with every brand I've looked at to feel comfortable relying on that alone. Thats why if I could just supply the stock pump with a good flow of fuel I think it would be reliable and hold pressure well but not sure if it works that way or not..

What would you suggest over ad2 fass?

Re: 6.0 upgrade lift pump

If your wanting to keep the stock pump in place just do an air dog 150 lift pump to supply the stock pump. I've never ran that setup so I'm not sure how much or what kinda pressure it'll hold and how big of injectors it'll supply. The lift pumps seem to work fine at low pressures it's the high pressure systems I would be worried about. I've seen a lot of guys using fuelab pumps and Aeromotive, more so now with fuelab it being a brushless motor design I think they are holding up better.

Re: 6.0 upgrade lift pump

How big are your injectors? If you are losing that much pressure on stock injectors, I'd be checking the health of my stock pump.

And why has everyone stopped recommending a 6.4 pusher feeding the stock pump?

No Regulated Return? Mine runs 67 psi on stock tune, can't see that dropping into the danger zone with a hot tune and stock injectors.

Re: 6.0 upgrade lift pump

Stock injectors but getting 155s soon as camping seasons over. I tried a different pump but pressure still dropped. Reg return is on the agenda but I still don't think that's gonna fix my fuel pressure. Need to get it fixed up before I do injectors tho. I think I'm gonna give this setup a shot. Put the same pump on a 3408 that's runs 20 hours a day at our gravel put and it has worked well.

On 65hp I can mash it from 0-80 and never see below 55 psi. Extreme street and srl+ it tanks like crazy
