Beans elec fuel

Recommended Posts

Well folks its in. BDP (beansdieselperformance) elec fuel. Ill start driving tomorrow after I get my new ICP sensor :-x I had a little leak on startup, went to tighten it up and when I was done teh ICP was broke, mustve leaned on it or something, so a friend of mine is comin from Kuna tomorrow to bring me one off his spare engine :thumbup: I havent driven this pig in 5-6 weeks, tomorrow the coal..............................will roll :smokin and I gives a damn bout fuel prices $$$ all the money I saved not drivin for 6 weeks :lol:

Its a great system, Id buy it again for another OBS. It is not a newbie mod though, Id say this is the same difficulty as........retro IC? Time consuming and tedious. Route a line, stare at it, reroute it, til its just right that it wont rub.

I must say, had it not been for Jeremiah, Bean wouldve gotten a restraining order against me :lol: Its nice to have people you can call and text for help, I call Jer my text-a-friend, Bean my phone/email-a-friend, and some rednecks answered some late night qs too:thumbup:

Heres the pics http://good-times.webshots.com/album/562935814zYBxEH

Ill post up driving impressions tomorrow.

Overall install took 2 afternoons, if my head was out of my 4th point of contact on day 1 I wouldve probably been done that day. Including takin the old fuel system out, havin a tool bhitc/sidekick, id say its a 6-8hr job, DOE and tools.

Jeremiah thanks for your help, Josh (tuffenuff) thanks for the tow. Its about time its me bein towed instead of you................ohhhhhhhhhburn

hell now, its been sitting for about 5 weeks, in another 5 my diesel might be bad :) Just so everyone knows, this isnt a Beans problem, I just didnt get some of my AN fittings tight enough (ive stripped lots of stuff out and worry about it constantly) Ive been assured you cant really strip out ANs and the NPTs taped.

For us non-Ford guys, what exactly does this setup do?

It also eliminates the managerie in the valley of the engine, to me it simplifies things. Some claim mileage gains, but youll definately have some hp gains. :thumbup:

Well I think Dan knows, some of us work long hours to earn a living, and we don't have much spare time.

I put in about 625hrs in Feb and March.
