Better fuel filtration

Hey all,

Anyone know what the stock Ford fuel filter is rated at? Also is there an easy way to add a spin on fuel filter to a 2000 7.3??

Thanks!

I put one of ITPs kits on my truck and its much quiter and you also add a filter on the rail

ITP 7.3L Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit

or you can DIY it like Guzzy did
Welcome to guzzle's In-tank Hutch Mod Web Page

My stock fuel lines had a break in them to add a filter i would guess. The break in the line was right under the rear drivers door. you could add one there with out having to do all the other tank stuff.

Yeah I threw a cat filter inline with my truck, I just did not know if there were any quirks to the Ford system, I know you guys have higher pressure from your lift pump.

I wonder if adding an in-line filter would cause problems with the stock fuel pump or other fuel flow issues? Would it cause a premature fuel pump failure?

What is deficient about the stock fuel filter?

Well many of us out there have added a filter before the pump either when doing the intank mods or just adding it, So far I have not read about anyone saying their pump died because of this. I added mine because after reading about the stock pickup and all the air in the system, it sounded like a good idea. Now that its installed, I am VERY happy with it! My truck is much quieter now! Plus I can change the one on the rail for about 10 or 11 bucks and the engine one costs 30 something. The one on the rail also has a water drain incase any water makes its way in the tank. so now I have 2 filters protecting my expensive injectors rather then 1.

Nothing is necessarily wrong with the stock filter but sometimes I just want a little more protection you know? Especially with the cost of HEUI injectors. I rarely hear of PSDs losing lift pumps, they are pretty beast pumps for stock LPs.
