Fass and regulated return

I'm starting to piece together and order parts for a reg return. I have a fass hpfp 95 on the truck now. All the custom reg returns I've read about have walbro or aeromotive pumps. Is this a good pump or no? Should I still run it online with my stock pump or ditch stock? Thanks for the help

Re: Fass and regulated return

Ditch the stocker.

You may find that the system will run better without the FASS too.

Make sure you put a fuel press gauge on it, and if you're gettin much of a drop, swap the FASS for a fleetguard filter/seperator set up or something similar.

Re: Fass and regulated return

It doesn't have the filter and seperator setup. It's just the pump

Re: Fass and regulated return

Oh, you have the FASS pump + your stocker on it now?

The walboro will outflow both. You might actually run into issues tryin to run 'em together.

Re: Fass and regulated return

Here's a tip....
The Fass I had, had a pre set regulator of some sort in it's system built in. Then when you run a RR system with a conventional fuel regulator the two fight one another or create a imbalance. You have to swap out a springs to bump the Fass pressure to a higher pressure to get it to run-up against the RR system regulator as it's last in the fuel circuit .

However you do it make sure you have only one source of fuel pressure regulation.

2001 F350 7.3 SD EC LB 4X4 Handshaker, Water/Meth Injection, GQSSB W/Carson Stauffer mount, Swamps 250/200 injectors, TE Duals, Fuelab/Sump, Spearco, FS 2500, Fluid Dampner, ARP head/Main studs, Sinister R/R, Detroit locker out back, etc.

Re: Fass and regulated return

Has anyone had a Walbro make it 18 months on a diesel specifically? Most all of them so far as I have read on here die around a the one year mark. I woudl love to run one actually two as fault tolerance as the price is right but will be going with dual SDs as I do not trust them when HP needs surpass these I will see what the market has to offer . Right now it would likely be a single Fuelab with the SD looped in as back up to get me home should the FL fail. Where I run no tow truck would ever go and it would be a very very long walk and PITA top fix on sight. But 2 SDs will cover you to 600HP and would cost you less than $60 to pick up a used second one to wire and plumb in. I would never run a walbro with out a back up that for sure. Too many failure stories.

Re: Fass and regulated return

Correct. I have the fass + stocker line. So should I ditch the fass and go with fuel lab or aeromotive or something? I need something that's proven not to take a dump on me in the middle of the interstate of something.
