Which fuel pump? Not an AD2...

I am in the process of upgrading my fuel system. I really don't want an AirDogII because I am planning on upgrading my fuel lines. I am going to run -6AN from the bowl to the heads (eliminating the banjos), -6AN lines from the back of the heads to an aeromotive regulator as the regulated return. now I just want a fuel pump to piggyback the stock pump and maintain 60-65 psi. No point in paying for the AD2 when it really isn't needed. Plus, this way will give me a backup pump to get me buy should one pump fail.

I know everyone is promoting the AD or the FASS. I just think it will be more beneficial to upgrade all the lines to allow more volume to reach the injectors first. I may just do that with the stock pump and see what it will push. The AD is just too expensive for a pump and i can't justify dropping that kind of dough on it and sleep well.

Is anyone running a Fuelab pump? Any other pumps out there other than Fass or AD?

You can buy a generic pump from jegs or summit.

It will be interesting. I am figuring a m12 to -6 AN adapter at the head. Then run 3/8" line with AN fittings. Going to try a 90. If not, they have AN to banjo fittings which should flow more fuel than the 6.4 banjos. A friend of mine will be bringing his truck to my garage for some cab off work. I will mock it all up on his truck, we will make two sets of everything, put one on his and the other for mine.

Cab off is the way to go if you are working on these.. I built my garage behind my house specifically for lifting the cab. 14' ceiling height and I installed a Bendpak 2-post lift. I just don't know how I ever managed without it...

He has been working hard on that intercooler install.. he is out in hampton today picking up the turbo compressor clamp. he should have it all installed minus the piping (we have to do some cutting/welding.). Then he can put his front end back together.

We did find that his vacuum pump was shot. He was telling me that his brakes were touchy. I was going to order him a booster but when he raised his hood, the vac pump pulley was tilted and it chewed 2 ribs off his belt by slingin them off the powersteering pump and the power steering pulley cut them off.. Pulled that vac pump and it was completely toast. Couldn't even move it by hand. Guess that was his squeaking problem...

Next is ball joints.. When we swapped the D60 in there, i didn't think about replacing the ball joints... Well, whoever bought the F350 with the IFS has some new ball joints...hehehe... After that, I will have my garage back. Have some work to do on the Edge (rear view camera) and i need to get my truck in there to do the Insight, CCV, figure out the clunk in the front (swaybar or trackbar bushings or shock mounts), and rewire my train horns. Dang kids need to hurry up..

I'm not in any hurry...especially with this weather we're having. I'm waiting for about 3K miles more then flush the coolant and pick up a few more items....then I'll be ready....probably later part of Feb or mid March...depending on how much driving I get done.

You can fit a 90* in there. But there is alot going on the drivers side. Routing the line coming off the 90* is the fun part, but since you have the cab off, it shouldnt be that bad. I would snap a pic, but my truck is also in the shop
