fuel system questions

After that last post I made I got a lot of replies. I like dieselsites kit, itp and swamps but they are pricey. Is there any downfall of running a air dog 2 and a rr? Also with that set up do you delete the factory fuel bowl? WHat are your thoughts on this? The air dog and rr are over 300 dollars cheaper and have cheap filter. Help me make this descion.

Re: fuel system questions

What are your power goals. Sorry could you put a link up to the last thread you referenced. I can think of a few ways to do if without buying $$$ kits.

Re: fuel system questions

I was hoping you would see this Tarm. You and Areisly seem to help out a lot. I am shooting for 550-600

Re: fuel system questions

SO you want he lowest cost you can do but still have the filtering and flow quality but don't want to pay for more than you need or the bling.

Sounds familar.


Do a ITP 5/8 tank mod

5/8 hose

Napa 4770 base with Baldwin BF1212 filter Water Fuel sep

Run 2 3/8 hose out of filter base

Each hose into 1 of 2 super duty fuel pumps

Run each 3/8 hose out

Into another Napa 4770 with a Baldwin BF7633 3 mic nominal 7mic absolute * there are better filters but this will do.

Single 1/2 line up to engine bay

Into a T

One 3/8 line into each head front or rear your choice.

One 3/8 hose out of each head.

Each 3/8 into a Aero or Fuel Lab Hi PSI Regulator

Use your original factory fuel feed line as the return to tank line. Out of the regulator.

Attach a air hose line to T int Map line

Reference 65 psi are max fuel psi at 20 psi boost or higher and 45 to be the min on the regulator. It will create a boost referenced fuel pressure curve.

For exact parts I think Marty has a list he can send you. He posted it before.

Other than the tank kit $50 and regulators $130. The SD pump can be had for under $50 from a salvage yard or $125 IIRC new. The filters and base are about $60-70 total. The rest is hose and fittings. So you have $400 plus the hose and fittings which you can get from Parker Hydraulic store local or net/mail order.

This will support your power goals and give you complete redundancy should a pump ever fail. You would still be able to use it for DD until you get it swapped out.

Re: fuel system questions

My setup:

5/8" fuel tank pickup tube(DIY)
5/8" from the pickup to the Napa 3405 pre pump filter on a napa 4770 base
5/8" from the pre pump filter to the Walbro GLS392 pump
5/8" from the pump to the Napa 3528 post pump filter on a napa 4770 base
1/2" from the post pump filter to the fuel bowl delete block
The ITP block feeds the heads from the front with 3/8" hard line
3/8" return lines from the rear of the heads to an aeromotive fuel pressure regulator.
3/8" adapted to the stock 3/8" fuel return line

Some pics here:

A lot of DIY here and it works great for my setup(500hp goal). I have no pressure fluctuation at WOT. Not sure if it would keep up with a 600hp set of injectors but a different pump could fix that issue. I used the ITP delete block because I first installed a fuel Y block and it looked like crap and I wanted it to be a clean install.

Re: fuel system questions

That is so cheap and easy to do.

Take a look at what I put down above. Start at the first filter base and keep to just one line to your pump and back out. The rest do verbatim.

Let me dig up the actual parts for you that you guys will need.

I want to say this as I have a serious issue with people taking credit for others work. Many of the things I learned about from how much two SD pumps could support in parallel to the actual fittings etc came from researching Marty's work as he worked his way thru designing a great DIY fuel system with a few different variations. He had to deal with the trail by error issues it takes to find what works best. It did take doing many hours of research to dig it all up but the base all came from him.

the great part of the above is you know its been proven to over 600 HP capable, tested, and run hard.

Let me go dig up my parts list. Be back.

Re: fuel system questions

Who is taking credit for who's work? You seem heated about something.
