Ripped the truck apart yesterday and did a EGR cooler delete, coolant filter install, turbo cleaning, 4" exhaust install and installed a regulated return fuel system I made. Here are a few pics, let me know what you think.....

Nice job. Would you mind releasing about how much it cost ya to make your fuel system? I'm thinking about piecing together one for myself this summer.

Thanks for the pictures! Would you mind explaining the home made regulated fuel system? Looks awesome! Thanks!
No....its a secret, lol. j/k. Basically just kept the stock feed line going to the filter housing then went from the 2 side ports on the filter housing to the front of the heads with bigger line. Then I came out of the back of the heads to the 2 side ports of the new Aeromotive regulator. Then I came out the bottom port on the Aeromotive regulator and hooked it up to the factory return line. Then just cap off the return port on the filter housing. Nothing special, just like everyone elses fuel system. I think it all costs me around $400 but I think my stuff looks way better than the $600 kits, so I'm happy.

why does it look like there is a thick washer on one of your turbo bolts in the first pic?

then again...maybe it's not your turbo...hard for me to tell/figure out.

That bolt/sleeve is built like the to allow expansion and contraction without breaking the bolts off.

Looks real good, I was tempted to build a fuel system myself also but wussed out. Almost wish I had now since I can't get one of the crappy fittings to seal.
