Fuel System on OBS

Hey guys I have a 97 f250. Everything on the truck is pretty much stock except 5 in exhaust. I want to eventually do injector work, air intake, HPOP, chip (which I already have but just have not installed yet) and most of all fuel system. My stock lift pump has a terrible leak and I am searching around for fuel systems. I would love the idea of saving money and making a customized fuel system but I don't have the time or the patience to find everything I need. I really want a complete system that I can install myself with not much headache and instructions. Can anyone tell me the best fuel system to buy. Thanks.

I have a Beans system. Works well but quite pricey.

I already had 160/100's before the install. With the bigger injectors I did see a performance improvement But you may not notice anything with stock injectors till above 3000 RPM on a long pull. The stock fuel system on a stock motor works pretty well. Best fuel mileage jump I got was from a new HPOP and good tunes. Average 18 now.

I wouldn't mess with it but the factory system is leaking and this just makes me wanna do the efuel in prep for future mods. Did you do the install yourself?

Yes, the install is pretty straight forward and not hard. Great supporting mod. The instructions where good with poor pictures but didn't really need them. The kit is complete. I have the kit before this one and it used a lower quality fuel pump, Walboro, that only lasted a year. This new kit uses a better pump and is more compact. The hardest thing was drilling into the frame on your back. The frames steel is pretty tough and holding your arms up for very long makes you tired. PM me your email address and I'll send you the install directions. Let you know what you are in for.

I got them thanks a lot seems like a pretty straight forward install but one more question, what happens with the fpr sensor and the stock fuel filter light sensor and water in fuel sensor. Don't they have connections with the stock fuel bowl???
