Stroking 7.3 Fuel Mod

Getting ready to do a fuel mod on my truck. It is based on guzzle's fuel mod, and will include the In Tank Screen Delete Mod, Harpoon Mod and Lift Pump Mod. Parts I have so far are a Summit 95 gph 7psi fuel pump, Sinister Diesel in tank mod kit, Bauldwin BF1259 Filter/Separator and Filter Housing. My thoughts on this are to mount the Bauldwin between the Tank and the Lifter Pump. The Bauldwin is supposed to be the the equivalent of a 20-30 micron filter with very little restriction, and I need something before the lifter pump to protect it. I am currently deciding on what 2 micron filter to use between my lift pump and primary pump, but I am putting a 2 micron filter there. I have a piece of aluminum diamond plate to make any mounting brackets that I may need. Thank you Guzzle (Bob) for your input and advise.

Cost so far:
Summit pump $75
Sinister Tank Mod Kit w/o filter $75
Bauldwin Filter Housing $0
Bauldwin BF1259 Filter $0
Diamond Plant $0
Expected cost of 2 micron filter $50

Yes there is a Santa Claus, Bauldwin filter and housing were on my desk when I walked in this morning. Dug the diamond plate out of a scrap pile a couple months ago. Good to have the right friends.
I will be taking pictures has I do my mods. Maybe when I post them it will catch something on camera that some one else did not include in their write up.

Superdutys dont need a lift pump. They have a frame mounted electric pump and thats all the lifting they need.

If Superduty mods were based on needs we would all have stock trucks. Some mods tweek, some make big improvements, some don't change a thing.
Don't know till you try. It's more about doing it and finding out what if any improvements you came up with. Enjoy trying.

Still thinking out that while I am waiting on it to arive.

I'll put up pics of my planned one sometime.
I've got the ITP (Sinister) 5/8th tank pick up. Gonna do that, 5/8th line to the pre filter, split off into TWO stock fuel pumps, then merge back into the post filter, then on to a RR down the road.
My filter brackets are just flat metal, holes drilled for the filter mount. Two holes to mount to the inside of the frame, on opposite corners of the bracket. I found I had to use a spacer to keep the brackets from bending when I tightened them down so I just measured and used some metal pipe. Push lock hose for good, quick connections.

A little more than I am going for at this time, but would love to see pics when you are done. Sounds like something I might do when I can afford to upgrade injectors.

Yea it's a lot. But if you do it now, won't have to later. I'm in the mind set of, do it big, do it now, not a little at a time over a long period of time
