Got Low fuel Pressure? Upgrading the Factory LP

Seems like everyone is having problems with there fuel pressure here lately. We i just got my fuel pressure gauge in the mail yesterday. I put it on and started the truck. @ idle when first installed it was 2lbs of pressure. Then i started driving it and it went from 2-10psi and then up and down to 3-4psi. I recently just changed the fuel filter. So i am guessing my lift pump is going out.

My question is why hasen't anyone done a write up on a aftermarket pusher pump install.

Here is my plans for my truck
Vulcan Big Line Kit for 98-02 Part No:VULCAN_VPPS9802_KIT
Purchase Here: http://www.genosgarage.com/prodinfo....N_VPPS9802_KIT
Holley Blue Pump with Reg. Part No:HLY-12-802-1
Purchase Here: http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

I will get the other part numbers as i do this. I plan on running some custom filter bases with fleetguard filters. I am going to start gather parts this weekend. And i will keep this thread updated as i do it along with some photos.

I've thought about doing one, the only problem is, mine is a FASS, which comes with pretty good instructions, and all my friends went with the FASS too. So I haven't had my camera out and around for a holley or other aftermarket lift pump install. Its usually a kit.

My buddy did a FASS pump. But i am thinking that will be overkill for me right now. Then he got all the filters and filter bases for cheap. Then a few misc hose end's

I will get some part numbers together and piece together my own fuel filtration setup. My buddy already did his. I will try and get some pictures.

That is what causes a lot of people to spend money twice. Think about the future and whatever you think will work now, buy the next step or so up. You will be glad you did. :Thumbup:

well i just called Geno's Garage and ordered my Vulcan Big Line Fuel Kit $136.00. I found a Holley Blue at a local speed shop for $95.00
So far i will have 231.xx into this pusher pump setup.

Next i am going to be looking into a fuel filter setup. What have others done for your fuel filter setup with the LP relocation kits?

Got my answer to the filter bases and filters from another forum. For those interested in doing this setup also.

I dumped the entire factory assembly since I don't need heat here.

Dude, I can't stress how good of a system the FASS is. I just put on on and just for piece of mind alone it's worth it. If you spent 135 for the big line kit alone, for another 3-400 you could get the FASS and it INCLUDES the lines.

I know it's alot of money, but it's worth every cent.

Makes you start to wonder if it doesn't have something to do with the new fuel huh?

I started adding 1 oz of 2 stroke to every gallon of diesel at fill up and it's bee working out really well. I'm no longer worried about wether my fuel is lubricated enough or not, and since I KNOW the 2 stroke is designed to burn, I'm not worried about coating my walls.

WIN WIN !!

Thanks for the info about the 2 cycle oil. I have heard people talk about it but everyone talks about how much per tank they put in. I am going to buy some today and add some with a fill up.
