FASS FUEL Ti sm factory filter

I have a Fass Fuel System in my 6.0.

Do I need to have to still use a small factory filter in the engine bay?

If so does anyone know where I can get these where I don't have to buy both filters?

All depends on what kind of filtration your FASS system has

You have to buy them as a pair as far as i know.

03 7.3l 550, FRx, 6637 mod, 4 inch turbo back, ccv delete, aih delete, HPx, Riffraffs OCR, Turbo-pyro-boost-coolant EV2 gauges, Bullydog GT tuner.

03 X 6.0 175/30 warren sticks, Livewire TS w/ warren tunes, Blue spring mod, atlas 40 ficm, 270amp dc power alt

I would try to get ahold of FASS themselves and see what they say. It might be a good enough system you don't need either factory filter

ff-3003 is a 3 micron filter. I believe that is fine. Should call to double check, but i wouldnt sweat removing the OEM filter.

So I spoke to FASS and they said that the small filter would be needed in order to have the correct fuel pressure. And suggested that I look up fuel bowl deletes. So I am going with a XPD regulated fuel return and fuel bowl delete kit.

I run an Airdog system in my rig and just change out the top fuel filter every 15-20k miles. I thought about doing a regulated return and deleting the fuel bowl, but the reality is the amount of money to do that job will pay for fuels filters until the year 2407. lol! In all seriousness, both the Airdog and FASS systems have such good filtration, you could probably get away with switch the underhood filter out once every couple of years. I completely deleted the OEM pump/filter assembly at the frame rail and removed them, replacing with the Airdog which has individual screw on filters and water separators. Those are good for 30k miles according to Airdog.

I guess you have a point there. Sometimes I have occasionally hard start or taking longer than usual. I was hoping that this will also eliminate that. But I guess I just was tired of only using the small filter and my shelf starting to stack up with the big filters, as I could not locate a company that just sells the small filter.

I bought the BulletProof 7.3 fan upgrade. So I figured I would do this all in one shot.

Fleetguard FF-5320 replaces that one that FASS sells
Fleetguard FS-1001 water separator fuel filter

The Fleetguard fuel filter provides superior fuel filtration(2 micron), than the FASS FF3003 diesel fuel filter

Your local Case-IH CNH Dealer sells these for their equipment

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

What are you using to monitor fuel pressure?
