If you are going to step up to larger injectors a RR would be a good idea. Plenty of RR kits out there to choose from using site vendors.

If you don't address the fuel supply as well then a RR isn't going to help.

Yeah, if I install one, I'll get one from someone on here. I had surgery yesterday and couldn't sleep so just started looking around. Just hadn't seen that one before. I have an AD2 but not sure if i wanna install it with all the issues that have popped up.

I'd recommend a fuel tank sump, AirDog 150 and a blue spring upgrade first. Then if you need more then get the RR.

I have the blue spring mod done and 6.4 banjos. Just need to get busy on the rest now. Is the sump really necessary if I'm not going for crazy hp or running the tank down real low?

I find it helps feeds the pump better since the pressure pushes fuel out. Just worth it if you get a secondary pump.

Ok. Let me ask you this too then. Will a factory fuel tank skid plate fit and cover the sump? I really hate the idea of that sticking down out of the tank with no protection and personally, I'm not crazy about seeing the sump at all. Figure if the stock one would work, I'd use it, if not, I'll have a buddy make one when I do it. I just like the stock appearance I guess.

I had a buddy mod my skid plate. The sump will add to the bottom 1"+. He fabbed up some spacers and welded them on. He was able to leave about an inch between the skid and sump. It came out just perfect, protects the sump and line coming off. I had the same concerns as you and it's easy to remedy. From looking at his work it seemed to be about 2" added to the skid mount arms.

It doesn't cover up the sump from the side so you can still see it but you got to look at it.

Ok. Thanks for all the input bud. If I go that route, I'll probably have him weld a strip down the length of the plate also and then just have him take it to work and paint it.

Personally I'd even put a sump on a 100% stock truck. I ran low on fuel once where it missed a couple of times as I drove into a gas station with my tank a little under a 1/4 full and within a month I had to replace two injectors. Sumps are cheap insurance for your expensive injectors.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
