ITP regulated return

Well I've had my regulated return sitting in a box for the past 5 or so months and I decided to start the install today. Only got about 3-4 hours into the job but I'm pretty excited about it. Not looking for any speed gains, I like it when things run silky smooth. Man there's some tight spots you have to get into with this mod though. Next mod... probably the airdog.

Re: ITP regulated return

Be very easy on the fuel ports. I think I may have cracked my rears. I will be checking tomorrow with a mirror. Better to put them in loose a turn or so and tighten them littel by littel to get rid of leaks. I thought i was gentle on them but turns out I may have gone too far. Good luck

Re: ITP regulated return

You mean the ports where the check valves used to be?

Re: ITP regulated return

he's talking about the old test ports (square plugs), but be careful with all of them as the holes aren't counterbored and will crack.

I did the same thing, I had mine sitting around for about 2 months then one friday night I just said the hell with it and started putting it in. Then my friend crashed my truck on the test drive but that's another story.

Its a great kit and Dennis is a wonderful person to deal with if you have any issues. I asked a ton of questions about which liquid pipe thread to use (ended up with white rectorseal TPlus2 fuel rated) and about tightening the fittings. The general consensus was about 1-1.5 turns from finger tight (i called finger tight not being able to turn the bare socket any more) but i used a stubby 1/4 drive ratched and got them all right the first try (lucky me) so no leaks or nothing.

Enjoy the quietness with the kit, I'm very pleased with mine

Re: ITP regulated return

I recieved mine on Friday along with the Airdog.. Just have to go round up some fittings for the bowl delete and get a post pump filter setup. I hope to install mine next weekend. Let me know how yours goes!

Re: ITP regulated return

OK, I've read this many time here, but WHY would one need a post AirDog fuel filter if the AirDog already comes with a 3 micron filter right out of the box?

I know the factory fuel filter has a 2 micron rating, but how clean is clean enough?

Yea, I thought about that too, but how many guys have had a pump self destruct to the point of filling the filter bowl with schrapnel?

I am also thinking, since this setup was origianlly used as an upgrade for the Do*g* trucks fuel lift pump, is there less of a chance of their injection pumps self destrucing and contaminating the injectors than ours? Since they have no other filtering other that the AirDog (if installed).

Re: ITP regulated return

The next time I clean the fuel oil purifier on my tug (#2 diesel) I will take a picture of all the cake and sludge that is in #2 diesel. Just a peek of this crap will make you want to put filter before every component in the fuel system
