When I put a fuel pressure gauge on the rail I got between 47 and 50 with the stock pump. 5.3 is rated between 50 and 55 from what I found

It's on the low side of the recommended pressure for LS engines. I've also heard of some having minor issues of fuel starvation with old, tired pumps.

Since you have the RCI with rings for the factory pumps it would probably be easiest to run the late model factory pump rather than modify the cell for another top plate. If you were to switch I would consider assembling a in-tank system with center pickup with either a Walbro or Bosch pump very similar to what Wayne at Alltech builds and an external reg and filter. His drop in dual pump setups for Ultra4s are a bit pricey but I'm going to piece together my own system and try to save a little. I'll do a write up in my thread when I get to working on that.

The only place people talk like that is up on the Iron Range.


No deal on the Cummins. Pretty bad dealership when they wont budge from advertised price or fix a damn gas gauge that doesn't work. Back to looking for a Tundra. I hate vehicle shopping.

As official test driver for Jforse enterprises I assure you that the Dodge Cummins test driven on Monday did meet the Jforse enterprises standards.

Funny. I'm kind of glad that deal didn't happen. I'm thinking that thing needed a steering gear along with the tie rods.

Going to go look at a 2009 chev 3/4 today. Looks like a sweet deal and it's local.
