reg. return question

What is the difference between a reg return system (ITP)and a crossconnect kit and HPX line from dino fuel alternatives performance wise? Is the difference in price worth it for someone who is not in upper RPMs alot?

Re: reg. return question

IF everything is perfect, they do the same thing. However, with the DFA kit, you will NOT be able to easily adjust your fuel pressure or know what it is without a gauge. The ITP kit will be a nice professional setup that will allow you to adjust your fuel pressure the way you want it to be adjusted. The best you can do with the DFA kit is to shim the flakey regulator and hope that is the pressure you want. IOW you can adjust it but no fine tuning. Also, I would get the HPX kit from ITP. Why? Because it is a hard line instead of a rubber hose. http://www.itpdiesel.com/store.php?c...on=show_detail

Would I get the HPX line myself? Probably not. Why? Because I knew I was destined for Big Oil. If you are not sure, get it and when you are done, sell it.

Dig a little deeper, and send FN74(jason) at DFA an email about his full replacement fuel system. It is $699, and has all the hoses and fittings for a fuel bowl delete, the pressure is regulated by an orifice in the return line, has a guage test port, and comes with a FASS High Pressure Fuel Pump.

I have been running this kit for about 10K miles now and I love it. I am not sure if it is up on their site yet, but an email will be answered.

Coming from a person who installs these kits daily........

Don't waste your time anywhere else, order it up from ITP and don't look back.

Re: reg. return question

How the hell can fuel pressure be regulated properly by an orifice in the return line?

































































That was a rhetorical question. Answer: IT CAN'T.
