Got a 7.3? Do you have a fuel bowl delete or want one? I have questions.

OK,

Fuel bowl deletes have been out for awhile and I know some people who have them. Out of those people, only 1 TRULY needs it and the other guys just wanted it. Yes, I've run the bowl delete for a specific reason and I've move back to the filter bowl. My questions:

Have a bowl delete:

What was the reason you removed the filter bowl?
What did you gain from this?
Have you moved back to the filter bowl?
What filtration are you using with the bowl delete?

Don't have, but want to delete the bowl:

Why do you want it?


Please don't answer with a YES or NO. Explain yourself as best as possible. Post pics if you want.

I have been considering alot of things for awhile now and I have got to decide to keep this truck forever before really pulling the trigger on them. I want an electric fuel system and full bypass filtration. I would like to open the valley up more to modify the intake air setup and clean up the general appearance. I also want to change the turbo location and maybe run twins in addition to a biofuel setup and on board air.

Do I need to do any of this? Of course not. I would primarily be doing it from an enthusiast point of view. Just because I can and it interests me.

Why?

So back to his question: Why delete the fuel bowl?

Is it restrictive in some way?

People have been doing this for a long while and I'm trying to understand the reasoning behind it. As far as I know, there is only 1 big oil setup that requires a bowl delete.

my advice is do the return sytem with the bowl. my best friend put his fuel return in at 197,xxx and it did wonders for his truck. he say a little better mileage and when he ran contribution test all cylinders were active where as before number 8 and 3 were being starved.

do the return, keep the bowl

I guess the real answer is there isn't a good reason to do it on a street truck. But, I saw alot of superchargers on street cars in the '70s.

I thought about doing this simply because filters are cheaper and easier to change if you go with a different filter setup. But that is the only reason and I haven't done it yet just because It take to much time and effort and you don't get a big gain out of it.

I don't see any real gain as the stock bowl isn't a restriction. I run filters before the bowl which does a great job. I only have to change out the bowl filter once a year and yes, it does catch crap that the baldwin frame mount setup misses.
