I like that he did it himself, but that distribution Y piece above the intake just looks tacky to me.

Yeah I would have done a distribution block in the valley, put the secondary filter post pump and done the prepump mods but it gives you the idea.

That's where mine is. I like that it was a clean installation.

What are the benefits of this setup over a Riff Raff RFX setup?

More flow, better filtration and some argue a better regulator.

That being said I will probably go with the fxr and prep pump cause the prepump will help with filtration and I won't run injectors or tuning aggressive for it to matter IMHO.

I have no experience with the FRX but after having a RR, I wouldn't want to mess with the FRX. Acceleration is so much smoother and my truck doesn't fall on its face in the 120 race setting on my chip. It has more than enough fuel through the power band. Idle is smoother and it sounds a bit quieter, although quietness doesn't matter to me, it's a diesel... Along with the RR, I did the bowl delete. No more paying for stock fuel filters that are overpriced!!!

Is this what you mean by Prep pump?
Welcome to guzzle's Helper/Lift pump Web Page

I am not planing to get to aggressive with tuning either but if I could put together a DIY full RR for what I would have into the frx and Pre pump I may go that way.

Here is easy diagram for regulated return. The filter bases and pump is pretty self explanatory. If you have any questions, just let me know.
