Been out of the game a while, fuel system question

Haven't been around in a while, and noticed that the diesel stop is totally dead. Searched around a little and it seems like a few of the old school members form there are posting here now. Anyways, now to my question. I have the itp reg return system and am looking to add some sort of higher flowing fuel pump. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, will this help me get anymore power, or is it just a good supporting mod?

Early 1999 F-250, 4x2, Auto.

Installed: MBRP 4" exhaust (3.5" Hypermax downpipe for H2E), AFE Stage 2, Autometer Gauges (boost,pyro,trans), FTVB, DP 4 position chip, BRV+, ITP reg return, H2E, Mini-Mes

301 HP; on 125 setting on chip (without mini-mes, with TS Chip)
285 Hp; on Fuel 7 (without mini-mes, with TS Chip)

Just a foundation mod, but once you have added the Mini-me's and such you need to make sure your fuel pressure is not dropping. If not you will loose HP, and damage the injectors.

Well I've had the mini mes in for a while now. So I don't need to add a high pressure fuel pump unless the fuel pressure is falling? How do I measure the fuel pressure while driving? I have reg return, but the fuel pressure gauge is under the hood.

Get an electric fuel pressure gauge and install it... 55-60 seems to be the sweet spot for the hybrids.

Sounds good, thanks for the help. I have my regulator under the hood set at 60, i just wonder if my fuel pressure is dropping off any. I sue wish AE could send me a fuel pressure reading!

There is no way for the PCM to read fuel pressure...
