New HPOP or Regulated Fuel Return?

Well after I get a 38R what do you guys think I should get? A new HPOP or a regulated fuel return line? I'm trying to get the most bang for my buck so I was curious as to which one would make the most difference.

I would do the HPOP, you will notice a bigger difference with it, than you will a regulated return on stock sticks.

I'd get the RR. I'd rather have injectors without air runnin through them than say 75% effective injectors due to low hpo

hpop will make the biggest difference but the regulated return should be done even with stock injectors, should run smoother, modded hpop or adre, you can build your RR for less than a 100 bucks, pm me and i will build one for you

Re: New HPOP or Regulated Fuel Return?

What is the condition of your current HPOP and what one would you be looking at getting as a replacement? What is your fuel pressure doing under WOT conditions? I can not see how it can be known how much improvement one would make over the other with out known these things. Which of the two is in the worst shape that is the one I would upgrade.

On the RR, would this only be the basic RR or more of a fuel system with the elimination of the fuel bowl and added pre and post pump filtering?
