Stock fuel system questions

Ok guys I'm gathering parts to do my own RR kit. I'm going to mix and match parts from different places to get an entire fuel system. I have one question before I list my parts. Where do the stock fuel line from the pump go to the motor at? I might get heckled for this a bit but oh well.

1. ITP in tank kit minus filter.
2. Dahl 100 fuel/water seperator 2 mic.
3. carter "pusher" pump
4. stock pump
5. Would you guys run another filter here after the pump?
6. Fuel bowl delete
7. homemade regulated return using gates fittings
8. aeromotive regulator
9. some kind of fuel PSI gauge



How does it sound guys? any thing you would change? I want all scrutiny possible so let the bashing begin.

Luke

I am running Napa filter heads with a 2 mic final filter and a 10 mic water seperator pre pump.

Really, just get the ITP bowl delete system and be done. I tried building my own for about two months, its a pain.

the actual return part was a pain? or just the bowl part? I want a since of something accomplished. Plus it is easier for me to buy the parts as I can afford them rather than plopping down 600 for a ITP kit.

I would sping for a Motorcraft pump, or high performance one. I have seen to many carters fail way too soon.

how many psi is the motorcraft? I'm just wanting 5-7 psi as a "pusher" style pump. Check out guzzle's website if you don't understand what I'm talking about...he reported faster starts and slight performance with a carter pusher pump

you mean before the stock pump? Makes sense. I don't like the carter pumps. The Jeep shop I used to work at and the diesel shop that had my truck a while ago has seen to many pumps last between a day to a year. Some will last, but my experiance is go with someone else

well what would you use other than a carter? I got all the fittings I just need to get the vibra lock fitting on a short hose to connect my factory return line to the regulator

and what are thoughts on leaving the factory fuel bowl? that does away with buying another filter head and plumbing it up.

People on here run a walbro. I have a Motorcraft, I recently did a fuel pump. It was under warenty (bad fuel) so I didn't have to buy one. But the people on here that run the walbro have good things to say about them.

There was a post yesterday with a link to a place that sells the walbro pump we need for about $60 cheaper than what I have found the carters to cost.
