Fuel pump

I have a 2000 f250 7.3 diesel and i heard that it is better to get more fuel pressure with a different fuel pump, do they go through more fuel or not. Also on a stock fuel pump how do you turn it up to get more fuel.

you have a high pressure oil pump that drives your injectors...

you get a chip for more fuel.

You can also do the FPR Shim for more fuel pressure

you can shim your fuel pressure regulator, there is a write up for it in the forums, which will boost your fuel pressure a little bit.

as far as "turning things up manually," thats it.

FPR Mod pictures from friends & fun photos on webshots

This is where the BB goes in the fuel pressure regulator(FPR)

you cant turn up the fuel pump. Just the pressure going into the injectors.
