Fuel

so i got a ? i was thinking bout doing a fuel filter delete and a regulated return and then take the stock electric fuel pump out of the system and putting a 150GPH air dog in its place and then adding a 2 micron filter after the airdog would this provide sufficient fuel to the injectors

Re: Fuel

depends on what injectors and your gonna want a post pump filter also(fuel/water seperator).

Re: Fuel

Not sure about the new airdog but, they were not intended as a stand alone pump, but more like a lift pump to supply another high pressure pump. But other will correct me if I am wrong.

Re: Fuel

the walbro can be had for a lot cheaper and does just as good.

Re: Fuel

My walbro lasted 8 months fueling 238's. And went through 2 factory pumps before that. So after all the money spent on pumps that "should be fine", I could have built a complete fuel system. My vote goes for the Fuel Lab pump, and build the rest of your system. Do a search for DIY fuel systems, lots of great info!

Not to hijack, but I'm going through this right now. Got my RR in -- holding about 75-80 psi at idle, but something is making a hell of a noise under the truck. When yours went out, did it start making noises or just fail? Here's what mine's sounding like right now:

Re: Fuel

WOW..........that pretty crazy. No mine did not sound anything like that, the factory ones got louder until they just quit, and the walbro never changed pitch but would not maintain pressure under load.

And 75-80 at idle is to high, should be around 65psi.

Re: Fuel

Yeah, I need to adjust the regulator. I was at 65 before the RR, and never touched the FPR.
