Which RR?

I am looking into RR's and am looking at the driven diesel kit for $850 which is the fuel bowl delete/RR and comes with the upgraded banjo kit, post pump filter kit, and all of the necessary adapters. Link: Driven Diesel 7.3L Bowl Delete Regulated Return Kit

The other is Irates kit but I have no idea what it comes with for $465. Link: http://iratedieselperformance.com/

Thanks for any input/suggestions!

I have been running the old Driven Diesel RR for about 4 years and have no complaints. Looks like Dennis has made a few improvements with the options available. I wouldn't hesitate to get his kit again

I have Irate's kit..... on the couch behind me. I can send pics if you want to know exactly what it comes with... but let me say...VERY nice kit!

I went with a slightly cheaper pump... and got the full fuel system from Irate for $1,000. 5/8 Pickup...pre/post pump filters, bracket, and pump, fuel line (5/8 pickup to filter, 3/8 filter to RR) from tank to RR, and 304 stainless SOLID (not braided) RR. Has Fuel lab regulator and liquid filled Marshall gauge, as well as fuel pump relay/wiring.

VERY nice... i can't wait to install it!

Thanks for the responses guys, I appreciate it. I got a crazy idea and wanted to run it by some people that know more than I. Trying to save myself some money what if I did the following. Bought the Irate RR and then got driven diesels post pump kit so that I can still delete the bowl. I think I would be somewhere in the $600 range as opposed to around $900. Or would this even work? Thanks again guys.

You dont have to use some name brand filter kit, just go down to napa and snag up a filter base, get a pfilter of like 2-5 microns and a fuel water sep. If you dont do the in tank mods or a sump the you dont need a pre pump filter, but you can use cheap inline filters for that.

I already have the hutch and harpoon mods done with a pre pump filter.
