build a fuel system or buy

I got injectors on the way and i want to build a fuel system, but price is starting to get up there. I have a aeromotive A1000 fuel pump and one inline filter from my mustang stuff. What I would like to do is sump the tank feed line to the pump then to a Y feed the back of the fuel rails come out the front of the heads into another Y then a regulator and return to tank. Is their a better way to save a few fittings also if y'all like this setup what can I use to screw into the heads other than banjo fittings I have a 4 inch down pipe so clearence is a issue. I use the search all the time but just asking will save a lot of time.
thanks.

Eliminate the Y on the return side just use a regulator with dual inputs. Something like the Fast 307040.

I think it's better to return off the back of the heads thru low profile banjos and smaller lines because you don't need as large lines as your supply. Lot more room up front to play with large supply lines.

Thats a good idea but what about regulator location, that would be a lot of lines to route to get regulator were you can adjust it. On gas stuff a large return helps fuel cool down does diesel have any problem with fuel getting to hot? I know early stuff had fuel heaters but just wondering.

Most guys attach it to the alternator mount then straight over to tie into the OEM return line. Keep in mind that the fuel is going thru hot heads so the more that returns to the tank the hotter the tank will be and diesel has a high affinity for air as it is so you don't want to add to the problem by heating it up. The OEM fuel pump has a fuel heater in it. I don't have my OEM pump nor filters and for winter fuel heat I run my return thru the outer part of a custom double walled setup I made because one time I mistakenly was given summer diesel in -35C weather....... not a fun time.

If you could provide a little more info we could better answer the question. Especially current mods and planned mods. Horsepower goals, injector size, turbo, etc... Also what are the specs on the filter and pump you already have.

Edit: Reread and Just saw the A1000 listed, what is the specs on the filter.

I think the considerable amount more of fuel that are hauled in a diesel would aid in dissipating the heat and adding a larger return won't hurt but may not be necessary.

My truck has a Swamps FICM, 5 inch Diamond eye straight pipe, it is studded. Also a Gillette regulator spring,tuner is SCT with custome tunes. I have a set of 175-30 warren injectors coming and i plan on doing something with the turbo like a MTW hybrid. I may put nitrous on it later.
Who is good at tuning a truck with said mods I have already run innovative and vivan?
Where can I get low profile banjo fittings?

I fabbed a bracket to mount my FPR in the corner by the brake Master cylinder and return from there via a -6, 3/8 hose to the old fuel feed hard line on the tank. You don't want the pump to have to work returning the fuel through too small a line. Easier to regulate the pressure and your fuel pump will thank you.
