Cool regulated return

hey guys. i had a couple quick questions about the regulated return kits from sinister. i was wondering what to expect as far as power gains, possibility of better fuel economy, etc and also if i got the fuel bowl delete the pros and cons of that. im not looking to make 900 horse power or anything...just looking to maybe get a little better fuel economy, maybe a little more throttle response and if it would save my injectors thatd be cool too. thanks!

It's more of a supporting mod for bigger injectors. I did the ITP (now Sinister) RR with bowl delete a few years ago, no mileage difference and no noticeable power difference. What I have noticed is the idle smoothed out and I can hear the #8 injector. The HPOP is more accessible, and I don't have to worry about the drain valve leaking. Would I do it again, hell yes. I even have plans on doing my 95 once funding becomes available.

No power gain, No mileage gain... A cleaner appearance and quieter running truck.

I now have filters that are half the cost and filter down to 2 micron...

ok...so this is something that i should probably do if/when the fuel bowl starts to leak? i have no intentions of gaining anymore horsepower unless i find a firesale deal on something. i just want to make sure this thing will run just as it is now for the next couple years. lol

Yes it has a black cap sits right behind the HPOP.

I built my regulated return. I ran two stock fuel pumps, two dip tubes. Built my filter housings on the frame then to a 1/2 feed that teed off to two -6 feeds. To the bypass regulator then to return. Pretty simple and cost me about 500 to do it all. No power gain. No milage gain but definately runs smoother. And setup for big oil and sticks

Also been very interested in installing a RR. Just moved up to Stage 2 160/80% injectors and the Adrenaline and the truck isn't always as smooth at lower rpms as it used to be. Already have a FASS HD system for filtration and also as my fuel pump. Wanting to do the bowl delete also to get rid of some of the restriction. Anyone was some good knowledge think the RR would be good for the next mod?
