Regulated fuel return

I bought a 2002 F 250 about six months ago and have done a few mods already.
DYI intake, 4" exhaust, diablo tuner ( I'm going to replace with DP tuner), 2 1/2 inch lift with 35" tires. My question is I'm thinking of getting a regulated fuel return system. Is it worth the money and will it benefit me?

It will, but a lot of it is going to boil down to how far you plan on taking the truck. Mild performance mods, save the money and get a FRx or build a DIY reg return/bowl delete. If your plans are higher HP then I would definitely look into a full reg return.

That is actually what I ment was a FRx and not a full regulated return (Im still learning all of this terminology). Is there any thing else I should do to the fuel system? Im just going mild with this truck.

Not anything else I can think of right off. Might even look into a high pressure oil crossover. It's kinda hit or miss on our trucks, but everything I've seen on it is that it works better with higher mileage motors that have a little weaker hpop.

I've had 2 7.3s with the HPx both were quieter and smoother running. I also have the FRx didn't really do much from what I can tell from sound or idle. Sure it's doing it's job tho.
