Here is the deal (2000 Excursion, 7.3, 200K)

A few weeks ago, I installed the Driven Diesel Regulated Return (set to 62 psi when warm). Ran great, smoother engine, a little extra power, etc...

This weekend, I installed the Driven Diesel pre-pump fuel filter kit (the "Hutch" mod + a Baldwin fuel filter and new line to the fuel pump). I cycled the key about 7 or 8 timed to prime the fuel system and started the engine. I ran rough for about 5 seconds and then seemed to smooth out, just like it did when I put on the regulated return. I gave it some more throttle, but then it seemed to "choke up," white smoke out the exhaust, etc... I then took it out for a drive, assuming it would smooth out, but it eventually died about 1/2 mile down the road. Called the tow truck...:(

Today, I partially dropped the tank to see if I pinched the new fuel line. Nope, it is fine.

I then got a fresh 3 gallon can of diesel and put in a temp line before the pre-pump filter. I ran the truck directly from the can, thinking that I incorrectly installed the "Hutch Mod" from Strictly Diesel and was restricting fuel flow. Result; same problem as before.

Next I put the temp line and can in right before the fuel pump, thinking that the new pre-pump filter might be restricting fuel flow. Result, Still am having the same problem.

It seems to idle fine, but starts to bog really bad/white smoke whenever the throttle is applied.

Is my fuel pump toast?

Did this issue ever get resolved?

I am about to begin installing this kit and was researching all potential issues.

I was just curious. I just finished my full Driven Diesel RR w/Pre&Post pump filters and it is working great.

I wanted to know what happened here in case I ran into a similar issue.
