"Worth it" depends on what you want. It wasn't developed for everyone looking to do fuel system mods because of the "custom" nature of it. It was developed mostly for my big power guys looking to make room in the valley for HPOP mods, multiple turbos, custom piping, etc. I've had some people do the bowl delete regulated return instead of the standard one because they're tired of all of the problems with leaking bowl o-rings and drain valves, just keep in mind that you'll have to install some kind of post-pump filter elsewhere in your system if you remove the factory bowl.

He better. Or he better have a lot of money to replace the injectors often...LOL....



This is what the bowl delete looks like on my truck. It also makes it easy to show off the dual HPOP's:

on itps website there is a spot where i thought it said they were going to make a filter kit for this if you do the bowl removal. im planning on doing the intank mod and the regulated return. i would like to delete the bowl so i dont have oring issues. but i would like to buy a filter kit before i do. i just dont want to change all of the things and keep the stock fuel bowl

looking to revive this thread... I'm researching installing a FASS from a newer 7.3 on my 95. In doing so I'm looking to remove the stock bowl and basically everything past the FASS system. Just wondering if this is what you guy were talking about. I was reading the directions for the FASS install on a 99-03 and it shows the FASS feeding the stock injection pump, is this just to keep the install easier or is there a reason to keeping the additional injection pump and stock fuel bowl. The FASS pump should be more than powerful enough to feed fuel direct to the heads no? If the delete is done, what gets run from the FASS, just a single line that T's out and goes to the two fuel rails? I just bought my truck and am learning all about how the fuel system works. Sorry if I ignored any obvious stuff about the system, they say there is no such thing as a stupid question unless you already know the answer :-)

Ah, so... I've been researching more and with the Airdog and the stock-moderate FASS system they DON'T replace the factory pump. They only pump @ 10 psi or so and still rely on the factory pump to provide high pressure fuel to the rails. If you want to get rid of the stock bowl and all of that (like I do) you need to get either the Airdog or FASS with a high pressure pump. So, question answered... for now... I think
