Regulated Return

I have searched/read 30+ post and can not believe that a regulator, hoses, 2 filters/housing's cost $1,000?! Im looking to upgrade prior to ordering my stage 1's for now. Was looking at Riff Raff FRx but the regulated return is obv better. I did find one build for $400 but the hoses they used from JEGS says on JEGS webpage do not use with oil based products. Does anyone know a reasonable build with link that im missing?

That $1,000 also included a pre-pump/ intank kit filter kit on my setup. You pay to play I guess.

Where were you looking for RR's? There's quite a few DIY setups.

the bigger question is, why do you want an RR for only stage 1's??? Just do an hpx/frx and call it a day.

For stage 1's you dont need no RR setup. If you want, do an frx/hpx and call it a day. $60 in parts right there, not $1,000

No denying that the RR is nice though... I did mine because of the plans I'm saving for.

You can build a full hard-line stainless steel regulated return for around $250-300.. majority (if not all) can be found on jegs.

Like previously said, a FRx and HPOx will be good for where you are now.. but if you have bigger plans for the truck, then a DIY RR system would be great.

RR

RR is great if you can't get ride of you air. You will need more fuel pump to keep up with the retur flow. With out the air to start with you can do away with the return line and just pressurize the rails. I use a Walbre marine pump that will run at 150psi all day so it never works to hard.

The Ex -box. Total RSD system. See what happens when you let attorneys run your Country!!!! There's nothing wrong with a Democratic society, we just need to get rid of Democrats. 2001 Excursion. 2003 Cobra Terminator all pumped up. Now this is fuuuuuun.
