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?

How do you like custom tunes vs banks? I see you got your name changed.

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.
