fuel regulator noise

Alrite I am on the brink of finishing my fuel system and I am presetting my aftermarket aeromotive regulator. I can hear it making a noise somewhat like a faucet running, is that normal? I have no prior experience with these.

Also is 50psi a good start? and what is the best pressure for a stock SD pump?

BTW I am running a 12 and a 5 micron filter, any comments/suggestions?

if there is still air in the system the regulator will be noisey.

I would run 55 to 60 psi with the stock pump.
I am running 70 with my aeromotive pump

Alrite thanks for the advice. How about the filters? is 5 micron too fine of a filter?

Also can anybody find me a wiring diagram for the fuel pump on a superduty?

There can't be much of a diagram since there are only two wires--key-on hot and ground.
