Got the Fuel Pressure back up on a stock pump

Recommended Posts

I don't know exactly what did the trick. Went for a test run and pressure is up over 14 on a stock pump. It stays there on wot.All I did was take the top off the stock pump and removed the screen on the inlet side. I know I can junk the screen cause I have a prefilter.Just wanted to let you guys know how it made a difference. I think I can attribute it to that. :hyper:

the screen might have had some debris in it causing a drop. the stock pumps are capable of delivering a decent pressure for a stock truck but you dont know for how long. just another reason to have a fp gague then you can see when it is starting to fail. i personaly would not trust one on my truck even with a gauge.

For those of us that cannot afford an aftermarket pump, I carry an extra pump behind the seat Plus with 1/2'' fuel shut off valves on each side of the pump and filter it's always an easy change out.Eventually I'll go for a Raptor.BTW The screen was perfectly clean... I really believe the screen slows the pressure down some.

times were alot better when i bought alot of the stuff i have so i understand where you are coming from. i ment no disrespect. as i have said before you have to take what you learn here or anywhere and apply it as you see fit because no one can care for your truck as you can. sounds like you have it under your watchful eye.
