aftermarket fuel filter setups

Ok, I'm just about at the peak of what I'd ever like to do to this truck performance wise. just your average run of the mill intake/exhaust/edge/ppe boost valve setup.

i had my injectors done by GM under warranty 50,000 miles ago and now ones going out on me again. I took it to GM with 14 days left on my warranty and they said #7 is flowing high but not out of spec ENOUGH to warrant me falling into the warranty replacement category. :censored me right?

I did try a full bottle of fuel cleaner (over the course of a few tanks of course) but it hasn't done anything, guess it was a little bit of false hope left in me. I have a feeling this all is contributed to me running micogard bullshit autozone filters. although having changed them every oil change probably helped, running them in the first place as opposed to the new GM revision filter had to have been the worst thing for my poor new injectors.

So I somehwat lucked out because obviously #7 is on passenger side. gonna buy 4 injectors and get to work on that side as the dealer said driver side still responds well as far as injector readings go. But once i'm done putting in these injectors, which fuel filter do i go with?

kennedy diesel recommends the dual filter setup and they seem extremely knowledgable. however i really like the idea of the bd kit wit hthe single large tractor filter on it due to a larger surface area of filtration. what does everyone here run? as stated in the beginning of my post i have no interest in gobs of power so items like aftermarket lift pumps probably don't pertain to my particular situation.

whats everyone here run for fuel filters/recommend? (i'm looking for something more than oem size filter in stock location can offer)

You should look into FASS & Airdog. There are several reports that state air is the biggest contaminate to diesel sys. I just bought the FASS HD-C10-150G primarily to protect the CP3 Pump & Injectors.

This is what I use Perma-Cool 81794 Perma-Cool Fuel Filter/Water Separator Kits

Great price and filters down to 2 microns, can handle 90 psi too so its good for after lift pumps. I think IdahoRob runs them as well, and they come with the mitusa lift pumps.

i have such a hard time seeing how my truck would need the FASS systems (i've been eyeballing them for awhile), i just think its overkill for my application. could I run the perma-cool water seperator along with the BD remote mount filter and be good to go? or will i start taxing my stock pump pretty bad?

Airdog II is the way to go in my opinion. We sell quite a few of these units and everyone absolutely loves them. Easy install, great pump/filtration, and the best warranty in the business.

Aftermarket filters are nice, and they might make your injectors last a little longer, but they will still fail eventually. Many are running extra filters and still have them fail. I am not discouraging you about getting one. IMO the aftermarket filters are cheaper to replace then the stock one and if they make it "stock" last twice as long it is not a bad thing. I am just saying that extra filters will not keep your injectors from failing.
