Just my 2 cents .. not knowing what all is in "Big Bucks" setup ..... Until you fab up your lines, buy your connectors, make you wiring harness, time to figure it all out ...... Fuel to run around and buy these things ....... you will be close to $200.00 - $250 ...... and the extra is worth just having it shipped to the door ..... but thats just me ... I am LAZY

ve seen those fuel air sep systems for around 685 im assuming it would come with all the fittings etc and just a pump for 285 seems a little much seeing how i just paid 40 bucks for basically a plug for the release valve(race valve they call it rofl) me thinks theres quite a markup for some of these things im not even sure the fittings came with that 285 dollar setup going to investigate a little further i dont have money growing out of my butt and i hate wasting it on overpriced gadgets when something plain and simple will do plus im used to working on broken down earthmoving equip so a little fabricating doesnt scare me too bad smoke on!!

the shim mod is free, and still offers rail protection. What you did was remove all rail protection with a solid plug that offers no pressure protection, an important safety feature.

Post pics of your lift pump install, or at least a DIY components list. Hope it solves your goals.

You had better double check on that NAPA pump cause I bought the same one and it works but I have no fuel mods on my truck and yes I know it is no D-MAX but it is a comman rail. The pump I believe you are refering to is a diaphram pump and not a vane pump like what you are obsoleeting. You can get a Holley black which is a vane pump, shipped to your door with regulators and barbs for right at 100bucks. :Thumbup:
