I got rid of the stock fuel pump after replacing three in four years. Installed a Carter lift pump and a Walbro pressure pump along with a pressure regulator. Feels like a new truck now. I do beleive that I could do a burnout with this truck even with the 325 tires. I think it also solved a fuel leak which could help mileage.

I got the rear wheels spinning today. Never done that before. I found the last fuel leak, a compression fitting was not up to the vibration. Truck seems to like steady fuel pressure, go figure.

Do you have part #'s and any pics. I would like to do something like this with my truck. I have given up fixing fuel leaks on the thing.

What did you do with the stock fuel bowl? It's not rated for and will not take the higher pressures needed to run the truck. Stock it's only pressurized to aobut 15psi or so.

From what I've seen, people have put inline Racor filters on the frame rail just downstream from the lift pump, and remove the stock fuel filter/water separator from the top of the engine for just that reason. I just got done reading Tim's fantastic writeup on I/C install and fuel pump replacement at Tims I/C Page example . Highly recommended reading!

Yeah you need to do something about the fuel filter if you upgrade the pump. The lid on the bowl just can't handle that pressure for ever and I've heard of the bowl busting too.

i just installed the cps fuel system from the dieselsite.com and it cures all of your fuel delivery problems. worth the money if you can afford it
