well i want to get this fuel system in place first and get the oilguard and the coolant filters and see where it goes

Is it worth it to go the cheaper route and get the cross over lines or is it better to spend that extra bit and get the ITP Regulated Return Kit??

In my opinion, yes. It's one of those that rather or not you use modified or stock injectors, it is well worth having that kit on there versus the cross over.

Sometime you really have to pay in order to get the job done right. I'm all for saving money at times, but sometimes it just doesn't pay to go cheaper. Combine the RR Kit with a respectable aftermarket air/water seperator fuel pump and you'll have a very powerful and consistant fuel supply to feed those injectors(all of them as to my knowledge the RR kit is the only thing that truly addresses the dead-heading on these engines).

You also might want to add an in-cab fuel psi gauge. There is one that comes with the RR kit, but it mounts to the regulator itself and doesn't do you much good romping on the throttle to make sure that your still maintaining pressure. Even though these aftermarket pumps are good, they do go out on you or it'll let you know if something is blocking fuel(bad filters etc) by showing a reduction in fuel pressure.

One time my FASS blew a fuse and the pump was dead, but I wouldn't have noticed it had it not been for my in-cab gauge as it shot down to zero psi while I was driving(must have had a surge somehow). You can mount the probe in place of the one that is provided in the kit and be able to monitor it there(that's what I did).

Yea i had read i'd need that fuel pres gauge in that cab.

What is the lowest psi you can go before you get the point that you are starving for fuel

Personally I wouldn't want it to go below 45psi, but I think 40 is the lowest, anything below that and be prepared to fork over some money for new injectors.
