HPOP or E-Fuel First??

I cant believe i'm even asking this after JUST getting new injectors (baby swamps 150cc) and exhaust (5 inch straight) but you gotta keep plannin for the future! Anyway, what should I start stashing away for first, Electronic fuel or a new HPOP (adrenaline from Dieselsite)? I'm leaning HPOP but look to you guys, 174K on my truck

low fuel pressure can kill your nice new injectors, low oil pressure wont

There's a schrader just off the fpr, if you remove that you have 1/4npt. Rig up a fluid filled pressure gauge with some fuel line and do some runs.

yes i would do e-fuel first... then when you regroup with costs go with HPOP, most of the guys here go with a t500 from terminator, flows the same as adrenaline, or close to it, but cheeper

FRANK THE TANK
DIY INTAKE - HYDRA CHIP - MARTY'S E-FUEL - 250/200s
05 AXLE SWAP 3.73 - 2.5" PURE PERF. LIFT COILS - FOX SHOCKS
BTS TRANS - TYMAR DOWN PIPE - 4" EXHAUST
Waiting To Be Installed... gtx4294r, studs, springs, HPOP?

but go ahead and check your fuel pressure once you install those injectors. if its holding fine you may not need the efuel yet

E-fuel and regulated return FIRST. Not only will it make the HPOP install a ton easier, but it will also help the performance of the engine and make the injectors run a ton better when they have a constant 65 PSI.

I could tell a difference in how my engine ran with stock injectors and the e-fuel.
