DIY Fuel System

Well the truck is in the shop and I've had some time to think. I currently have dual stock pumps which held up just fine with the hybrid injectors. I'm thinking I'll need to retest pressures with these bigger injectors. I'll probably need to increase volume.


Here is what I was thinking.

5/8" pickup tube to 3/8" fuel line forward. There are 2 variances here so that's the first question.

1. 3/8" line to a air/water seperator, 3/8" line to a stock fuel pump, 3/8" line to 2 micron filter, 3/8" line to another stock fuel pump, 3/8" line up to heads.

or option 2.

2. 3/8" line to fuel/water seperator and 2 micron filter. Use dual outlet filter block or my current "T" and then run both stock pumps in parallel on 5/16" lines until they "T" back into one and then run 3/8" from there up to the heads.


After I decide how to configure that with plans of upgrading one of the pumps in the future, I need to decide on which fuel regulator to get.

I had the Aeromotive A11000-6 or the Fuel Lab in mind... but are there other options?


I also plan to get a fuel pressure gauge in the cab so I can see it at all times instead of the contraption I have now that I duct tape to the windshield when I want to test it .


So, 2 questions... which pump/filter configuration should I go with... and why. And which regulator should I go with, and why.

Last question... trying to find out what these injectors flow in GPH from Swamps, and then I was going to see if dual stockers were even up to the challenge. Does anyone have some flow data for the stockers and maybe a few aftermarket pumps like the walbro or fuel lab etc...?

Re: DIY Fuel System

I have future plans that go like this.
-10 pick up and -10 line to water seperator
-10 line to fuel labs pump and -8 from pump to 2 micron filter and -8 from 2 mic filter to ITP bowl delete block. All with AN fittings.

Re: DIY Fuel System

My set-up is still holding up great, supported close to 600hp now. Never seen my fuel pressure gauge fluctuate.

5/8" pick-up to prefilter. 3/8" split to each stock pump. 3/8" lines back into post filter. 3/8" to ITP bowl delete. 3/8" on the return to tank.

Re: DIY Fuel System

My pump is configured at ~50 to 60gph. I do not drop fuel pressure.

And fwiw... you're injectors are 300cc per 1000 shots. Shouldn't take you too long to figure volume flow @ any rpm of your choice. Their injection rate should not encroach on their ability to fully empty within a reasonable rpm limit.

Re: DIY Fuel System

Powersmoker, what kind of splitter are you running? Just something from Summit?
