    Well i installed the gm 6.5L Lift Pump and micron filter setup today. I uses all 1/2 inch fittings and hose also i fabbed up a custom braket. I will post some pictures later. The Rail Pressure holds at 21,000 @ 2900us, I would say that is good enough for me. That tune sends the tires to smoke when it shifts into 2nd.:twisted:

    Looks good. Does it go: Tank -> Lift Pump -> Filter or am I backwards? Also were you having trouble keeping the CP3 fed or is it more for insurance?

    It comes from the tank to the pump , filter, then to the line that feeds the engine. I was losing rail pressure on bigger tunes and the filter is just an insurance policy.

    What was the cost on the lift pump and where did you get it?

    Huh it looks like a good idea! If you just wanted more fuel pressure why did you add the filter?

    Good idea though! Its definatly cheaper than doing twins. IIRC the inline pump was like $100?

    I bought the pump for 140.00 but the pump can be had at your local auto parts for 50.00. I bought the pump from Kennedy because i wanted the 1/2 inch fittings that came with it.
