Secondary filter delete

I know some of you have deleted the secondary filter on either your 7.3 or 6.0 For big fuel flow. The 6.0 and 6.0 filters are exactly the same i think and I want to delete mine. Is there a delete kit on the market for this?

I have a modified fuel system with a vegistroke setup. Part of the mods involved moving (or in this case adding) the secondary fuel bowl to the frame rail. Long story but basically this is to avoid lifting the cab for the install. So the other filter bowl under the hood isn't needed and is simply just there serving no function and can be bypassed which will reduce purge volume with diesel when I park it.
That maybe a little confusing unless your familiar with the vegistroke operation on a common rail.

IF you delete the factory filter, how much gain are you looking at?

About 20%
that's not the real issue though. When purging, the diesel could (and is to some degree) bypassing the wvo in the bowl resulting in an incomplete purge. The bowl has to go.

The only way to eliminate the fuel bowl at this stage in the game is to dish out the $2000 for the Elite Stage II low pressure fuel system. The Air Dog II pumps from the tank to the fuel bowl....which I like on my current setup because of the extra filtration I get. I don't know of anyone else out there that has eliminated the fuel bowl with a system than Elite. I'd be interested in a fuel bowl delete down the road for sure.

Looks like all i can do is have a short hose made with the propper fittings to accept the fittings on the hard lines that connect to the bowl and just bypass it.
