Better Alternative to Factory HPFP?

Hey guys I have my truck scheduled to get head studs on September 3rd, I want to update he HPFP while the cab is off because ik they are a common failure point but I can't seem to find any type of updated or aftermarket pump on the market. Is there one out yet or do we just have to deal with the stocker and hope for the best?? Also is there anything else I should have done while its getting studs? Truck is an 08 build date 3/08, has dpf/egr delete, 5in exhaust s&b intake and spartan tuning. I want to be able to run the 310 tune with no issues (built tranny will come later) so what all will I need for fuel system upgrades? Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Duel fuelers will take the load off the stock pump.

You technically don't need any fuel system upgrades to run the 310 tune. I would start with an Air Dog though. That alone will help your HPFP due to better filtration.

Ok, the main reason I'm asking is because the shop I'm getting to do my studs recommended that I put a new HPFP in while he has the truck apart that far. I asked him if there was an update on the pump and all he could tell me is that the part number changed, this is a shop that specializes in powerstrokes but they have done hundreds of 6.0s and only a dozen or so 6.4s. i knew an air dog would be a good idea but I thought I might want larger injector nozzles? would the stock setup handle the 350 tune?

Part number changed from rev A to rev B. I think this was in 2011. Don't remember specific changes.

Stock HPFP isn't going to maintain any bigger nozzles. You will need a dual fueler setup. And there is no since really in running bigger nozzles since air is the limit at the time

Ok, would it still be beneficial to run a dual fueler setup to keep load off if the stock pump like moto2four said? Does anyone know what the changes were to the newer hpfp?... I was also wandering if there were aftermarket rocker arms that would be worth upgrading to while the heads are off?... Sorry for all the questions guys! Haha

Idk if anyone does, I was just wandering if there are any out there that are stronger than the factory rockers.

I would just stick with the OEM rockers. You can get all of them for like $300. I think I remember reading that they updated the design.
