There isnt a need to change your lift pump untill you put in much larger injectors. The stock pumps are very durable, good performing units. Least IMO

A Factory SD pump will support up to 400-450 hp

A good regulated return to rid your system of air and equalize fuel to both banks

Start with a regulated return system and the in tank modifications that were already posted up. There is really no need for a larger pump until you put in larger injectors. You may want to add a pre pump filter also.

I did the in-tank mods that Arisley is talking about except i ordred my kit from diesel innovations for 25 bucks and i definitely noticed less injector cackle. I would recommend this as your first fuel system mod and then move toward the engine with a regulated return. I have a regulated return coming from dino fuel alternatives as we speak so i will give that a try.

X2 for the in-tank mods though! well worth the time. But i recommend pulling the bed off rather than dropping the fuel tank. its MUCH easier in my opinion

Easier to pull the bed than drop the tank ?? I disagree I reccomend getting the tank as low as you can droping It its not to hard

Well i know that i had to have help to drop the tank down and put it back up in there and that was with an 1/8th tank of fuel but i was able to removed and install the bed myself easily. Thats just my experience. I guess if you dont have access to a lifting device then dropping the tank would be much easier

stay away from fass everyone that i have seen buy one had at least one motor burn up. talk to bill at php about improving your edge..some units can run better tunes, the edge while very cool as far as gauges, can run ho as far as egts and be hard on a tranny...not all of them but bill can tell you 4 sure.

What all these guys said.

Id start with a regulated return on the motor and then the prepump mods and some better filtration down on the frame rail. If youre looking for a larger pump, i havent had any issues with the Fuel Labs, and they move some serious fuel. A tank sump is always a nice touch too for the guys that wanna move the most fuel possible:D

Who would want to do that. :poke:





But if you are going to do a fuelab you will have to have 5/8's line prepump. To do a whole fuel system plan on spending some money but as said earlier it is not needed until you add injectors.

I know i have over $1000 in my whole fuel system including fuel pump and filters.
I've got more like $1600 in mine, BUT it is just the way I want it to be. :D

Last week: :eek:

$50 - 5/8" pick-up

I did fail to mention that I replaced my ENTIRE fuel system, tank and all, so that's why the price was so steep for my build.
