I've got a 1997 OBS and a new Vegistroke system on order, but with the recent owner switch the OBS Vegistroke kit is no longer available. So, I'm covered on the veggie side, but I'm trying to figure out the electric fuel pump conversion on the diesel side. I think I understand that I need to create a deadhead type system for the diesel side. It seems most people recommend getting rid of the stock fuel bowl (although that doesn't seem to be what DFA did in their kit according to the installation instructions).
I'd like to make this an inexpensive conversion while still maintaining reliability. Easy to find replacement parts (filters, pumps, etc) is also a huge plus. I should also mention that I'm not concerned with power upgrades.
My main question is do I need to use a regulated pump (FASS or Raptor) or can I use a less expensive pump (like the 99+ Superduty) with an inline regulator? If so, which regulator would work? I notice when most people (without a wvo system) do this conversion, they do a regulated return with something like an Aeromotive regulator. However, I need to do my pressure regulation on the feed side because I'm going to be using my return ports on the block for WVO with the Vegistroke. Would an Aeromotive still work?
Basically I'm looking at doing it like this guy
(scroll halfway down), but without the regulated return. I've researched quite a bit, but I'm still confused so your help is much appreciated!
