What mods do you have done to your truck? What are you planning to do?

A good regulated return set up might serve you better IMHO.

You might want to throw a trans and turbo on that list... how big of sticks?

Personally, I would do a RR return kit and prepump mods... you can start with the stock pump and make changes (fuel sump, bigger pump etc) as needed.

I use an airdog 100 as a lift pump feeding the stock pump. Working good for 4 years and counting.
I agree with a RR as well anytime building over 400 hp, along with converter, valve body etc or full built trans. It gets expensive after 400hp.

More importantly, what year 7.3 ? ? Rod identification !

03, 7.3 FX4, CCSB

Yes it does hurt your bank account with these kind of toys.. My over all plans for this truck is to reach about 650-700 hp but as of right now is a dd and a 400 range is good for right now.. And it's a 2000 model

I wouldn't do either! Personally I think both of those pumps are very unreliable. They are also very expensive. I have friends with both setups who have both had major issues with their pumps.

I am going with a dual stock setup. I think it is tough to beat the reliability of that setup. After seeing what my friends went through there is NO way a FASS or an Airdog is going on my truck. Even if it was free!

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..
