E-Fuel Parts list, questions

Well my stock system sprung another leak so I think I'm ready to scrap it and build an e-fuel system. I'd like to keep the whole thing between 500-600 bucks. I want a quality system, not some rigged up crap, but I don't want to spend a ton of money either. Here is the parts list I have so far:

Regulator - Aeromotive 13109 - ~$150 on Amazon
Pump - Airtex E2236 - ~$100 on Amazon
Pump mounting clamps - something from the hardware store
Fuel/Water Separator ***'y - Stanadyne 33640 - ~$70 on dieselstore.com
Final filter - Wix 24770 base & CAT 1R-0750 - ~$26 on Amazon & ~$18 on eBay
7/8" Freeze plug - $1 at the parts store
Liquid filled gauge - ~$20 from Driven Diesel
Oil pressure switch - ~$14 from Driven Diesel
Wiring/relay/etc - TBD, looking for some input on this
Fittings - TBD, looking for input on this as well

Total so far - ~$400

I'm looking for some input on where I could cut back on cost as well as a few additional parts I'm not sure which route I want to go yet.

Does anybody know where I could source a stock SD pump bracket? I'm leaning towards not getting a junk yard pump because I'd like to put all new parts on it, but it's not out of the question.

For the routing on top of the motor, I'm thinking I will use either a 2 way block, or get one of THESE y-blocks from summit. Then I will cut the banjo fitting off the stock lines and reuse the stock lines, run fuel injection hose between the feed line, y-block, and stock lines. Unless someone has a good way to reuse the factory banjo fitting.

As for wiring, do yall think it is worth it to buy the $120 harness from Driven Diesel with the pump controller? Or I could make my own harness and I'm thinking run a wire to the GPR to have the pump run when the glow plugs are running, as well as using the oil pressure switch from Driven Diesel. If I make my own wiring harness, what is the relay that most people use? I don't think I'm going to fool with running the wiring into the factory fuse box, at least not for now.

Is the Stanadyne FM100 series fuel/water separator worth the cost, or should I buy a different setup for pre-pump filtration?

I don't like the idea of having my junk hanging down below the truck with no protection, so I want to fab up some kind of skid plate that bolts on for easy removal at servicing time.

Open to thoughts, comments, criticisms, etc.

Thanks

Am I correct in saying the inlet on the regulator is -6AN and the factory return lines from the front of the head are -4AN into the regulator? Does someone make a -6AN to -4AN 90* elbow?

Can someone point me in the direction of a -6ORB to 3/8" barb to go into the regulator output?

Been looking around on jegs and haven't seen either of these.

Thanks

Yeah that's the one I saw. Just wondering if it's worth spending the money to buy that harness rather than making up my own harness

Looks like a cool fitting for the Banjo....I paid about 25.00 dollars at a hydralic shop for a fitting that the banjo bolt screwed into and then threaded the inside of the fitting for 1/2 pipe and put the size barb fitting in it with gascola on the threads....Done!!

I like the pump harness cause when you turn the key on it will run for only 20 seconds then shut the pump off unless you start the motor and get oil pressure....Kinda nice setup in my opinion!!!t

Yeah I definitely like the harness and the controller, just not sure if I want to spend the extra money on it.

As for the banjo bolt, I like the idea, 75 bucks just seems like a lot. I guess that'd be about the same as the money I'd spend fabbing up a y-block with fitting/lines and all that. Did you have to get them to make up that fitting you got for 25 or is it just a common fitting they had on hand?

I am probably going to get one of these blocks...I have the hydraulic shop fittings, and they are heavy, and seep a bit.

this aluminum block looks like the best thing since sliced bread to me.....
