I build my own. I have a regulated return system with the ITP delete block. I run 1/2" from the tank to the engine. I use a walbro 392 pump that will flow 48gph at 60psi. The filters are frame mounted filters available at any parts store. $600 into the whole system from tank foreword.

Unfortunately I'm probably going to have to buy a complete kit, not something that I can run back and forth to the store on.

So far I'm looking at mid 7's... plus the intake pickup...

Are you going to run a regulated return or keep the dead head system?

At this point in the game I'm not sure.

I'm about to go drive around a bit more with the AE...

Make sure you have a fuel pressure gauge to monitor the pressure at WOT. Anything less than 20psi and you can hurt the injector. Anything under 40psi and you are loosing performance. AE can not monitor fuel pressure, but you already know this I am sure.

Enjoy the power, it gets fun.
