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.

That would be awesome if you wouldn't mind.

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.
