Only problem now is my chip the programs start out: Hi idle, Hwy MPG, and Hot. Well the 'Hot' program is the lowest HP before the next 3 and it swings 40-42 psi of boost. First time I really rolled into it hard I was in my 5th position, which it has been in since I installed the chip, well just barely started to roll into it and got about 1/2 throttle and the needle was passing 43-44psi with gusto!! So needless to say I will be keeping it in my 'hot' setting or maybe going down to a 'Standard' also.

Other than that no complaints, and fuel pressure seems to be healty with the stock SD fuel pump. It might have moved down 1-3psi, but that is on mild programs too.
I don't feeling like typing it all out right now, so see This Thread for the whole story.

Only thing I got from DI was the fuel fittings that go in the head. Other than that, I have Swamps injectors, the H2E can be had from various vendors(I had it already though), and the 3" intakes I got from the Ford dealer. I the pump and filter off my other truck, which had a small fuel system. But all the fuel system components were bought local from various shops, Parker Hydraulic store was the biggest help. I usually have a used SD fuel pump or 2 laying around, and the Fuel pressure regulator I bought from a local mustang shop since I was in there one day for something and they had it on display.
