Couple questions

I am probably going to put regulated return fuel system in this weekend. What should I set my fuel pressure at? Mods are DIY intake, turbo back exhaust, swamps 160/100 injectors and a TS chip. I have also heard it is highly recommended to get an in cab fuel gauge. Should I hold off until I get the gauge? Next question is I dyno'd the truck over the weekend. She made 370hp/727tq. Which I was pretty happy with. I would like to step up to to different turbo but don't want to go to crazy. I would like to be about 450hp. I have been looking at d66/38r/366. The problem is I have an e99 so the d66 is the only drop in turbo I can get but if the other turbos will be more beneficial I will go that route. Would it be smarter for me to go with irate setup since that will give me more turbo options if I every decide to change but I highly doubt that I would ever want to go bigger. Or should I just try to find all the parts to swap it over to a 99.5-03 setup and go with 38.

Re: Couple questions

a fuel pressure gauge is very very handy to have in the cab but go with an electrical gauge or you run the risk of getting fuel in the cab and all over the engine. i would set it for 65 psi

if it was me i would do the conversion to 99.5-03 but with a t4 mount so you have more options for turbos that way youll be set if you do ever want to go bigger. again if i was in your shoes this is what i would do.

Re: Couple questions

Was definitely going to go with a electric gauge.

Re: Couple questions

I think there is a good deal on an s366 with mounting kit in the classifieds. You'll also need more than a 15 degree hpop to make 450 with 160/100's

Re: Couple questions

If it were my truck I'd get an h2e from Cary (obswiz) with a Carson Stauffer mount. Or buy the mount from him and get a used h2e from a big truck. They can be had for 250-350$ from a wrecking yard. Either way you get one you can have it modded in the future if you go bigger.
