What Next?

I'm looking to add some more performance/fuel mileage to my truck. Whats something else I could do without having to add head studs yet? I thought about the FASS System. What about injectors? Which one should go first if i go that route of FASS and Injectors? I dont do any pulling of any kind either.

a fass is a fuel/air seperator. I RR simply lets the air pass through the back of the heads and down to the tank again, to make sure that your injectors are only getting fuel and not air mixed in. Kinda the same thing, but totally different installs.

You should see a minor performance gain, maybe some mileage with the RR. It would really help if you go the injector route later on. I would do that versus the Fass personally.

The regulated return can be a DIY install. Mine was done by npccpartsman (hubby) in the driveway in about 4 hours by himself. The ITP system is a very good product and Dennis is a great guy to deal with. The most important thing to do prior to the install is to lay all of your lines out and make yourself familiar with what you have and where they do and it will make the install much easier.

Here's the choices I have to add either a FASS, R/R, Banks Intercooler, ARP Head Studs or EGR Delete. What would you all choose if you had a choice? Is there not a R/R included in the FASS system? I see where you have both in your sig. Which one should be put on first if they both need put on? Thanks for help everyone!!

I already had the RR but it was not enough for my bigger injectors, that is the reason I added the FASS. If I had not needed the FASS for the injectors I would have not added it at this time. That is not to say that somwhere down the road I would not have, but I believe the RR would be a better mod to add if you are not going to be putting bigger injectors than a FASS. That is just my 2 cents. but I would do the EGR delete FIRST! That is the cause of many issues with the 6.0L
