Fuel bowl delete

I'm looking to put a return regulated fuel system and delete my fuel bowl, what kits is everybody using? What pre and post filters?

Driven Diesel 7.3L Bowl Delete Regulated Return Kit is very nice but a little expensive by the time you buy their pre filter posts filter tank mods and additional hardware needed for installation you're looking at close to $1000.

I managed to put together the tank mods and filtration post and pre filter for a lot cheaper but their bowl delete might be the way to go. I was hoping riffraff would put together a kit.

The filter mounts are napa #4770. Pre pump is a 15 micron and post pump is 2 micron. You can DIY this set up for under a $100.

Ssmith622, I was hoping riffraff would also! But I was looking at driven diesels kit and liked it, I assume it comes with everything minus pre an post filters. That I can solve myself with the napa filters, thanks beanhead6D5!!

I put together a complete fuel system from the intank mods to the cylinder heads for > $500. I purchased a used ITP Diesel Fuel Bowl Delete Block, with the hard feed lines, an Aeromotive FPR & gauge with ORB fittings, and a spin-on prepump filter with bracket. I purchased new the nylon braided 250 psi rated synthetic race hose, JIC fittings, adaptors & Otiker clamps, Walbro GSL392 fuel pump, post pump filter & mount, and the intank mod kit (purchased several yrs back). I am running 3/8" ID hose (covered with plastic wire loom) from tank pickup to the heads and regulator. I am also using the stock return line and adapted it my regulator with the same 3/8" hose. Although some of the big ticket items were purchased used, I still would have save few hundred over a kits needed to complete my system. It did take quite a bit of time to put all this together and, with that in mind, you have to factor what that's worth to you.

I used barb fitting!The housing is threaded for 3/8" NPT. Going to switch those out for male and female 3/8" JIC to NPT and push lock fittings. This way if I ever have to remove any thing it will come apart very easy.

I also used 3/8" diesel rated hoses,from tank to engine.

Roland and I have been bench building our systems together for some time.If you have any more question,just ask.

You can buy a system and save a lot of time or do some research and take some time and build your own.

I still have a few things to clean up before I will call it finished.

I used JIC connections on all the supply and pressure lines. I even put a 3/8" compression-JIC male adaptor fitting on the suction line at the top of the fuel sender assembly. I retained the stock return line and quick disconnects. I just added an adaptor on the bowl end of the line to connect a hose to the regulator. I purchased an inline male-female JIC adaptor with 1/8" NPT port for adding a fuel pressure sender. I don't have the sender yet, but can be easily installed later with this adaptor.
When your ready to do this project, let me know and I'll give you a materials and supplier list. I didn't take any pics of this project, but would be glad to if anyone is interested.

i used the diesel innovation regulated return. instructions were easy to follow and all parts included and fit good. i bought the square drive socket to get the fuel plugs out of the head. looking at the fitting size that threads into the heads i dont see any advantage to using -6 jic fittings for the hoses. some one with more experience can maybe tell you pros and cons but i would think you could use -4 jic and strato flex hose to make your lines. good luck and if you decide to sell your fuel bowl keep me in mind.

What was the model number of the FPR you used. I've seen several and would like to get the right one the first time. Thanks.
