No FPR Screen

I went to clean my FPR screen this evening and come to find out, mines not there.

I bet it's been off for quite some time, but there's no way to really tell.

What are the downfalls to not running a screen? Funking up the return line?

The screen is after the filter, but what ever the filter misses the missing screen obviously won't catch either

I'd have to disagree with this. If it is useless, then why do they end up getting caked with crap?

in no way did I say it was useless, I said what ever the filter misses the lack of FPR screen will miss it as well, as in what ever trash was going to get caught by the screen is now going through the rest of your injection system

Ah, thanks. I was reading that first post wrong. My apologies.

I've noticed a lack of power. Could the FPR screen not being there cause this?

What should I check since there isn't a screen?

not sure a lack of screen would kause a loss in power, but a bad injector because of trash going in will have this effect, but mostly have you checked for boost leaks at the manifolds, up pipes, up pipes gaskets, intake y boots?

I haven't yet. I don't have to tools to do that myself. I'm guessing any competent shop could do a boost leak test for me?
I'll inspect the up-pipes tonight for any noticeable visual signs of a leak.

I have a small fuel leak in the valley. I have a complete rebuild kit for it, and I planned on cleaning the IPR while I was in there.

Is there any soot on the firewall or excessive amount any where in the engine bay is one way to check and if u clean the valley really good with degreaser and run the truck you maybe able to pinpoint the fuel leak.

I have a small exhaust leak where the downpipe meets the EBPV. No biggie. I haven't checked the up pipe yet.
