More fuel system upgrades...

while planning my build and gathering parts, I would like to set my self up for a solid fuel system that will support any future upgrades. So this is my idea, please voice your opinions and thoughts....

Beans Diesel sump w/ 1/2"line --> spin on filter base with either a CAT or Deere filter water separator --> 6.7 pump --> spin on CAT or Deere 2 micron final filter --> engine --> RR --> Tank

I see that a lot of guys are picking up on adding the 6.4 or 6.7 pump inline feeding the factory 6.0 pump. However, can a 6.7 pump be used as the Primary pump and eliminate the factory pump? or would this cause some problems?

I would like to eliminate the factory filter base and regulator... what all needs to be done to ensure that this is done properly and that I am distributing fuel correctly to my heads?

I want this to be a clean and well done install. like I mentioned earlier, this should have no problem supporting any future mods I might make. don't hold back, let me know.....and pictures will be very helpful....
Thanks guys

The 6.7 pump hasn't been tested yet on a 6.0. It's only been bench tested. Here is a copy/paste from Dale's thread on the 6.7 pump.

3) I have done testing already on the pump and water separator and I can tell you this it flat out removes water. I took a 5 gallon bucket added 1 qt of water to 5 gallons of diesel fuel and transferred from 1 bucket to another. The end result was very unexpected to say the least!!!!.... none of the water transferred to the bucket instead it was all trapped in the water separator and what it couldn't hold was dumped back into first bucket simulating the tank so yes I had return and suction in one bucket and the same in the other. I hope that makes since as I tried to simulate the fuel system as whole. I did more testing with this than I did with the 6.4l helper pump that has turned out to be very successful indeed. I really should start my own performance shop!!!!

4) I will get all prices for everything and update them here Monday

5) The 6.7l pump is considered a low pressure pump on a 6.7l as it supllies 2 fuel systems on the 6.7l. It supplies the common rail pump and the injectors to keep them wet if the cp-3 fails to it has to move a lot of fuel. it supplies the 6.7l with 3 times the fuel it actually needs. Through 2-1/2 0.50mm lines and the return is actually 0.47 mm not then 1/2 inch.

The pump looks to be a good candidate for deleting the 6.0 HFCM all together, his test showed that it's a good water separator and the 6.7 pump holds a filter like the 6.0, so it looks like you wouldn't need a separate water separator or fuel filters.

It's just been way too cold to do the install and testing yet, we don't have a heated garage to work in.

I have a sump runnin to an A1000>a filter base with water sep and filter from napa. Like 45$ I think. And I still have factory fuel filter under hood.

An A1000 support any injector u can throw in a 6.0L hope this will help u decide on a pump. There reasonably priced also

I know that a lot of guys like the A1000 but I think it would be nice to run a factory ford pump...
