Fuel Bowl Delete on 2nd Gen 7.3

My 2nd Gen PSD (my X) which is converted to run vegetable oil currently has a blank sitting in the fuel bowl and I use Hydraforce solenoid valves to switch fuels using the oem config. I have a 2 micron WIX that sits on the frame rail to filter #2.

I'm thinking that I might as well go to a fuel bowl delete, which would give me alot more room in the valley to mount the valves and other goodies.

My current install cuts into the inbound line into the bowl and is connected to my fuel selector valve, the return from the bowl is also regulated by solenoids and either looped on veg or sent to the oem return to tank line.

Does anyone know if most fuel bowl deletes also do away with the return line on diesel as well?

What are the pros and cons of putting a pressure regulator on my return lines? Or should I just delete my return lines all together?

I should mention that I use a HPFP FASS 23a set at 75psi for veggie and the oem fuel pump for diesel (which I believe does not have a pressure regulator, except the one in the oem fuel bowl).

What are my options? Who's kits are the nicest and most affordable?

Any advice greatly appreciated.
