Fuel pump?

Ok I was just thinking any benefits from getting rid of the mechanical pump for a electric one from a 99-2003 truck?

Just curious

Guys report better starting, better MPG's, smoother idle.

I'd love to do this mod, but even goin as cheap as you can, its still gonna be atleast $400, then at that point, you say "for a few bucks more just get a airdog"

next thing you know your into this fuel setup $500+

its a good supporting mod, but I'd rather spend my money on somthing thatll give me bigger bang for the buck (hpop, water/meth, I/C)

The pump usually doesn't come with the bracket and wiring pigtail. If it does, that's a great deal. Other than that, just build a relay system, nice water seperator (dahl150 or similar), and some fuel lines. I have the frame bracket/wiring harness kicking around somewhere if you need it, Good luck, it's a great upgrade!

OBS and SD fuel systems are completely different. OBS are regulated return with a two-stage mechanical pump. The fuel filter is on the low pressure side of the pump. The SD is dead-headed (no return). The OBS filter bowl cannot handle the high pressure of the SD pump. You will need to get a filter and regulator setup along with all the plumbing. Cheers!

I know I had ended up with a stock pump leak at weep hole so when I did my system I cheated and did a beans system . It is a great system don't have to worry about a failure that is hard to get to . Other great thing was adjustable fpr I have lots on tap now for bigger injectors. Oh and a clean valley you can do a full sd turbo and intercooler swap and there is no bowl to get in the way.

Doing the e-fuel swap (no matter which way you go) is a VERY good modification to do. The electric fuel pump is more reliable, truck starts easier, idles smoother, fuel PSI is constant unlike the mechanical pump, better filtration, cleaner engine, and a couple other reasons.

I got mine done originally for $500. I have since added another $150 to my install by swapping in a Stanadyne FM100 fuel/water separator and Stanadyne 100 watt fuel heater. If you live in an area where the temperature will be below 40* at any time, I would recommend the Stanadyne FM100 and heater. The heater has a built in thermostat that turns the heater on when the fuel temp is at 40* and off at 48*. That keeps the fuel from "gelling" (gelling is the forming wax crystals).
