Why is this the second strange thread I've seen like this lately?

Your fuel bowl is what supplies fuel to the injectors.. why the hell do you want to delete it

I saw a article in diesel power and they used a kit from diesel site and they compared the fuel bowl delete kit the stage 1's they said it had a crisper throttle response and felt more like it ran stronger and the idle was also much improved and did not have the lope after start up.

The regulated return systems are a great mod and get rid of the dead head fuel rail problems with the 7.3.

I would have a hard time justifying deleting the fuel bowl since it is the last line of defense when your fuel pump grenades and throws tiny pieces of brass at your injectors. It's hardly worth the cost of 8 new injectors.

With stock injectors, the fuel bowl is no restriction at all. With modified injectors, the fuel rail fittings pose more restriction than the bowl.

What most people ignore with the stock fuel system is the crummy fuel pressure relief valve and its Buna-N seat. It will begin to deteriorate and leak fuel back to the tank. This causes the fuel bowl to not allow full pressure to the injectors when needing power. A bad seat does not affect the way the truck starts, idles or runs. Without an in-cab fuel pressure guage most will not know that there is any problem other than the truck does not have the power that they think it should.

Why do your replies always make me
The "fuel bowl" isnt what supplies the injectors. I believe theres a different name for that...something like fuel pump??

Most people delete it when installing a RR kit and pressure regulator. Dirk started a thread over the fuel bowl delete, go read, ill put my money where his mouth is not yours
