You need a regulator, tubing and fittings. Then just put it together.

With the cost to picking everything up, it comes to around the same as buying a kit

Look here for the parts, hose lengths and diagram to build your own.

You might be happier in the long run just buying a kit from Diesel Innovations or ITP. I only built my own because I have an OBS truck.

I think most people leave this disconnected and dial in a static pressure to their liking (~65psi or whatever).

We have mine connected to the intake Y pipe. The base fuel pressure is dialed in at ~45psi and we have a "boost fooler" valve in-line so that the regulator sees no more than about 20 psi of reference. This is an attempt to extend the life of the pump (A-1000), as the fuel pressure stays in the 45-50psi range while cruising, but climbs up (at a rate of 1 to 1 with boost pressure) to ~65psi when I get on the throttle. It seems to work great.

I have to give credit to Matt R., as this was his idea...
