What's the optimum fuel pressure for a 6.0?

I have Elite's regulated fuel return system on my 6.0.

But I really don't know what the best fuel pressure is to run.

What is the FP on a stock 6.0 to begin with?

and then with the Elite system, what would be the best performance setting and the safest? Thanks.

I want to say that Elite said around 60 to 65 was safe. I have it at 50psi right now.

Oh yeah, my tuner is a SCT tuned by Tadd.

Do either of you have an incab gauge or are you just going by the gauge on the regulator?

I have a gauge on order from ITP for the regulator, and I also have a Di Pricol EFPG that will soon be installed in the cab.

Tunes are awesome, tranny shifts like a Formula 1 race car (quick and smooth)

There is no comparison between the 6gun and the SCT.

Wished I'd known about SCT's before I bought the 6gun.

As far as the user name, I started with BamaSixGun at the other forums before I registered here at the org.

I just wanted a different name for here, so I signed up under BamaF350.

To change at the primary forum I visit and help moderate would loose some people, they all know me as BamaSixGun, so I have kept it.

I kinda like, it sounds cool.
