dino fuel reg return?

I looked through some of the forums, i have read some feedback on the cck kits they offer, but does anyone have anything to say about their full regulated return that dino fuel alternatives offers? its definately the right price!! and also it has a guage port on it already, where and what type of gauge should i get or just wait and spend some big change on some other kit? thanks in advance

Fuel Rail Crossover Kit

I've heard good things about the Dino fuel kit. The only negative I've heard is that you have to cut your stock fuel lines.

The kit that I'm going to go with is the Fuel Rail Crossover kit from Riffraff diesel. It isn't your traditional "regulated" return kit, but it is still regulated by the spring inside your fuel system. I have also talked to Riffraff and they will be offering different springs to allow you to adjust to the pressure you want (although the stock setting is fine from what I remember - something like 65 psi). The nice thing about this system is that it is a true bolt on kit. Not cutting or modifications required. There are also ports on your fuel bowl that you can tie in a gauge as well. Here is the kit I'm talking about:

I believe the only difference is that it doesn't have a manually adjusted regulator. However, it is still regulated by the spring inside your stock fuel bowl. And like I mentioned, Riffraff said they will be offering different rate springs if you want a different fuel pressure. But to answer your question, it is a complete kit, but it just doesn't have an adjustable knob on it to go manually adjust on the fly. But a spring swap (if needed) is a quick change out as well. And there are two ports (if I'm remembering correctly) already on your fuel bows where you can tie in a pressure gauge if desired. I talked to a person at Riffraff, and this is what was described to me. Hope it helps.

so i read more on that one you told me about SJB, but that one uses compression fittings.. Im not so sure i wanna go that route either, i have had problems with those in my kitchen with alot less pressure going through them, not sure i wanna puncture a hole in my fuel line, and hope its a tight enough fit to not leak. Do you have yours installed yet or still in process of ordering?

Yeah, their add says it eliminates the need for compression fittings. I haven't ordered mine yet. I'm saving up for both their FRx and their HPx systems. If you get their system, I would definitely be interested in getting your feedback on it if you get one soon and install it. I'm probably still a few months out before I will be ready. I'm saving for my gauges install first.

i actually just bought both, im curious to find out how hard their HPx line is to install.. I had a hell of a time, and a few choice words, while installing one on my last truck. It was not stainless steel like this one, and kept moving around while i was trying to tighten it as per the instructions, so in the end i said screw the instructions and did it my way and it was much easier..! but ill post up how the install goes and if my truck is noticibly different or not. should be here sometime this week
