in-line fuel filter pre pump

What fuel filter is a good idea to go before the fuel pump? I am for now, thinking of removing the intank screen via the hutch mod, then running an inline filter. At this point I am leaving the fuel bowl and filter in tact.
Any thoughts? Not looking for an expensive set up. Just something to get the job done.

Inline filter setup on my 2005 F250 Diesel

I had the fuel pump drop pressure due to it picking up trash out of the tank. Didn't find out pump was not putting out correct pressure until I had some issues with the fuel injectors.

When I removed the pump it was full of trash and it had damaged the pump.

Here is a a picture of the inline fuel filter mod I just completed.

If you're doing pre pump, I'd do a water separating filter.

If your leaving the stock fuel bowl and filter then I don't think the large water separater or filter is necessary. You could use a wix Inline filter. I used one from napa for a while before I did a complete RR. I'll scrounge through my old thread to see if I can find the part number.

Wix 33270. Cost like $8 for me. All your doing is replacing the screens from the tank to a replaceable filter so it should be more than enough pre-pump filtration.

i have considered doing the same thing except i thought about doing a sump. it should be better for factory setup and then would be there for full RR down the road. would the tank need to be dropped to do a sump?
