I just followed the instructions. I didnt run into any issues. Your gonna need a fuel gauge to set the pressure properly. Mine was running 70psi out of the box had to turn it down a little.

That is weird cause I was reading the manual and it said that the pressure was preset to 50 psi...

I have a gauge that is why I relized I needed to do something about my stock pump

Yah I read that too, and then set up the system and checked it with my gloshift gauge, and it read 70...So I thought it was just cause it was a gloshift, so I used a buddys snapon fuel pressure gauge to check and it was 69-71psi. So I turned it down a little.

i didn notice any difference in how the truck ran except in the higher rpms on my race tune when my stock HFCM couldn keep pressures up...

I plan on changing mine once a year.. about 12k miles

so you guys changed the water separator also? I have been reading around online and some people said that they never change the water separator...

I did e-mail airdog the same question... I wanna see what they have to say about this..

And performance wise... I'd guess mine would change... since when I go WOT... my fuel psi drops to around 25psi

quick trick to getting the old fuel line off the tank is use a flathead screw driver and go to the side with the driveshaft and pop it off that way. if you do it from the other side you will be there awhile
