Just at a glance I don't see anything that looks concerning. You take very good pictures by the way. Oftentimes the issues that will need to be addressed are lurking in the depths, and finding them involves regular oil analysis, possibly a coolant sample to be analyzed. You should definitely do an oil analysis anyways to get a deeper health check of your engine. You know what you'll lose by doing so? Just a little time out of your day to pull some oil and send it off, maybe a little money. but whatever.
Everything seems put together well, and looks pretty clean. I could hve missed something though, I haven't had my coffee yet.
It's securedIs that feul PSI regulator just laying there or is it attached to a bracket?
AirDog is where it should be and thank you for taking the time to check out the picsDidn`t see the lift pump. But if you are double checking to confirm the parts are as he described, looks good so far.
Looks good, I don't see anything I would be concerned about. Your coolant reservoir is overfilled.
You should be able to remove that fuel regulator port fitting without spilling a bunch of fuel. Putting a gauge on it would be a good idea. I wouldn't be surprised if the previous owner already had a fuel gauge setup though. Maybe he removed it when he sold it to you. It would be a good idea to monitor fuel pressure by installing a gauge that is accessible while driving. Most people recommend 60psi of fuel pressure.
I installed a pressure gauge yesterday and pressure at idle is just under 50psi so I'm going to adjust it to 65psi. The AirDog lift pump on the truck has a screw on it to adjust pressure as well so not sure if I should adjust the lift pump or the Fuelab regulator?
And to test pressure under load I'm going to put it into 4x4 and accelerate while pressing the brake and I also have a magnetic GoPro with light I can setup under hood to video the gauge while driving WOT. I do have a GlowShift fuel gauge with everything needed to set it up, but I'm not good with the electrical stuff and I don't want to add any more wiring till I clean up the current mess lol.
You have the "J" pipe on your "Egr Cooler." leave the valve plugged in.
You could see the J pipe in one of the pictures i posted? And will leave the valve as is thanks.
Adjust your fuel pressure at the regulator, not the pump.
Yes, your truck does have it.

Right before these pictures were taken I had installed the coolant bypass filter so I had to drain the system and refill with new stuff so the level in degas bottle is most likely differs as it got sucked back into the engine. Engine has been run since and coolant is now at lower end of updated fill level sticker. Bottle has a new 16psi cap on it and from what I've been told there only needs to be an inch to inch and a half of fluid in there, but it's something I keep an eye on of courseThe picture that I looked at sure didn't seem to indicate an overfill on the degas bottle.
Negative on that.Do you have the blue spring fuel pressure regulator update
