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 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.

I uploades some pics of the superduty fuel bowl and the BB going into the FPR.

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.
