1- Buying a kit(NOT DIY KIT), bought mine from Strictly Diesel along with a post filter kit(cause your removing the fuel bowl and filter).
2- Follow the instructions pretty easy, theres only one difficult part and that is using a dremal tool to remove some of the exhaust housing(only on the early 1999 models tho), theres just alot of putting in the part and removing it to grind little by little away(took 45 minutes of laying on the engine(seemed like 1.5 hours) till it fits just right. And thats on only one fitting too.
3- You need to remove the stock fuel lines, one or two of which have that special fitting, that needs that special tool. I made mine own and worked just fine.
4- Not much to it, takes about 4-5 hours, if your doing the bowl delete, regulated return, post filter, and the extra line or two to mate to the stock lines.
5- Buy the Whole kit from Strictly Diesel, and the extra lines that dont come with the kit, if you call Dennis (the owner) he will walk you through what else to buy. They dont come with the kit because of the vase arrangments of after market fuel systems. If you have a stock fuel system PM me and I will tell you what you need even.
6- And thats it, pretty easy if you follow the instructions, that are VERY well layed out, and even tells you which size of wrenches to use and sockets. (saves time).
7- Enjoy the stickers, cause the kit comes with like 5-7 cool stickers.
1- Quiet Engine!! More quiet anyways, not that drone noise while going down the highway, you can actually talk at a low voice or use the cell phone while driving.
2- Better throttle response!!
3- Increased mileage!!
4- Longer injector life!!
5- Removing of that Problematic fuel bowl system!!
6- Can adjust the fuel presures, and more even fuel presures!!
7- The fuel circulates through the heads not dead ending at the heads!!!!!!!!!!!! BIggest perk, because it saves your injectors and you dont hear that tap tap tap noise by the injectors!!
8- Faster starts!!
9- The engine just runs smoother, something just feels different, like less vibration, less noise, more responsive-ness, and still is my POWERSTROKE!!!!
10- If I had anyother 7.3L I would put one on ASAP!!!!!
