Stock superduty electric fuel pump, wire it in yourself on a 30 amp relay.

Dual filters, water/fuel seperator and a 2 micron.

I can get you the pump with the fittings in it you need or $40, the filter heads from napa are 35 each, filters are 15 and 20, and he pushlok is going to be around 100 bucks. You'll need a regulator... try ebay or I can get them for a couple hundred. You'll need associated fittings 100-150 bucks.

If you're going to do it... do it right the first time and get rid of the POS fuel bowl.

This is a write-up on what he is talking about. Refer to second half (past the Intercooler install is the fuel system mod)

Tims I/C Page example

You can do the superduty pump and eliminate the fuel bowl.

You're looking at probably 500 bucks in parts + install.

What makes you think something is wrong?
Today I got in the SD and I see that I have a 1/4 tank more fuel than yesterday.Tomorrow I'll open the fuel bowel and check the fuil for contaminants.Depending on what I find :it maybe in need of a flush.A good fuel anaylsis would be helpfull.
Does anyone know you can analize fuel?????????????

All Im saying that corrosion of fuel, contaminants,water,fungi,or rust is flushable.

I don't know why my tank is filling up over night.I wish it was diesel.
