    I am getting to the point in my swap where i need to start thinking about the fuel system. I am using a 95 5.9, OBD1 ,keeping the injection. This engine does not have the return line or regulator on the rail. I am planning on buying an EFI tank and pump from Tanks Inc. Would my best bet be finding an earlier fuel rail with the regulator and return or buying one such as the corvette style reg with a return, appreciate your advice.

    I would add an external fuel pressure regulator near the tanks inc tank, then run a short fuel return line back to the tank. with that set up you should not have to mess with the fuel rails.

      I'll be installing full length pressure and return lines to an Aeromotive bypass fuel regulator by the engine in mine. I know how I am and want to have my options open when I decide that the stock Magnum isn't enough.

        I got this info from AndyF. He is installing a fuel injected big block in his white Duster. He made a post about it in the big block Abody section. But Looks like Holley is making a fuel pressure regulator/ fuel filter set up now. I don’t know if it’s something you might be intrested in but might be worth a look?

          I agree with dustermike, I will be ordering parts for this same set up soon and if you are keeping the magnum stock I believe you will want approx 48 psi +/- 2 psi The corvette regulator as far as I can tell is a non adjustable 58 psi. Tanks Inc, sells a adjustable regulator for approx $85.00, it will allow you to reduce to the correct pressure and add a short return line back to the tanks inc tank. You can also get a 20 micron filter from tanks inc too.
