Feul system?

Hello guys i have a few questions on what fuel setup will be best for me.

Truck is an 04 getting 155cc injectors and egr delete right now. Other than that stock exhaust is straight piped and i have the blue spring installed. I don't have any tunes on it for the moment more looking into making the truck reliable first. Reason for injectors is i had 4 that went bad.

I have read about the fuel system options and it seems like there is a lot of routes i can go. I have read some say you need a RR and some say you don't. I have also seen fass or airdog supplying the stock pump. And the ones that are completely aftermarket.

Now future plans for the truck include studs, coolant filter, feul system, ecm and ficm tuning and possibly a mtw stage 1 turbo. Probably wouldn't go bigger on injectors any time soon.

I want the truck to be reliable and not trash my injectors. I would really like to do away with the stock filters. But i also don't want to spend a whole lot of money. Would i be able to do a low pressure setup like fass or airdog and the rest stock and be fine? And if i have that and leave the rest stock can i delete the stock filters somehow? Im not a big fan of the stock setup. And with that would i have to run a sump or larger draw straw?

Also i was trying to look for a good writeup on a diy system but couldn't find anything that was real detailed. I think i want to do diy cause of the failures i have been hearing about fass and airdog motors. Also those things are expensive lol

Just trying to figure out whats all out there and what i need. Thanks

Re: Feul system?

The kit that we carry is the cleanest kit out there in my opinion. It is the Driven Diesel's Regulated Return. You can check it out HERE if you are interested.

Shoot me an e-mail or PM if you have any questions or are looking for more.

Re: Feul system?

I would do RR for sure.
If you do an afternarket pump, do a sump kit too. Seems to me that the pumps have less issues on trucks with a sump, easier to pull fuel.

Fass and Airdog will get rid of the lower filter by replacing the pump there. I'm sure you can get rid of the fuel bowl up top too, just gotta figure out how to connect to the RR kit from whatever pump you run.

Dozers Diesel has a full kit with sump, aeromotive a1000 pump, fuel/water seperator, fuel lines, and RR for about $1k. You could call them and see about removing the upper fuel bowl.

Re: Feul system?

Is it completely necisary to do a RR? I really don't feel like droppin a grand right off the bat. Can i get away with just a pump then later do a the RR? I would like to do it in steps. Hoping someone posts up some of the diy setups. thanks.

No it's not necessary. You can always add it later. It is a good mod for longevity of new injectors though. You can run all stock with 155's and be fine. If it was me I would do the RR before a pump if I had to choose between the 2.

Re: Feul system?

If you're planning on deleting the fuel bowl then the strictly return isn't gonna work for you, although I agree it's the best looking kit out there. If you do decide you wanna do it all at once and not have to worry about the thinking part of it then just call Jake at Irate Diesel. He can fix you up with everything you need.

If you decide you want to do it yourself then I would just get a sump with your stock pump, or an AD150 sumped feeding your stock pump, and then you could make your own rr return and get rid of the fuel bowl. Remember though if you delete the fuel bowl you should add a 2 micron filter somewhere to replace it. That will feed your 155s just fine. There's tons of options though, and everybody will have different opinions on each one. It all depends on your price range and creativity.
