I hope to have in my hands very soon a fuel filter with built in fuel pump, water sensor and heater. This will be great for those guys with the Mega or anyine that wants better filteration with a fuel pump. Only problem is its a little pricy. Will run about $325. Available in 2, 10, or 30 micron.

No pics yet nor replacement element cost. I think I would mount it on the frame myself just because it would make it so much easier.

Yes it is a Racor and I think it will mount on the bracket I already have. This would also be a great setup for the 6.5TD folks. It comes in three sizes and what i posted is the biggest at 50gpm. They have a 30 and 40 gpm as well.

Greg, Any ideas what the pressures would run without a bypass ? This sounds like a nice product.

10 psi is the max pressure it will run. Has a built in bypass so when you get to pressure it wil open and recirculate the fuel. I ordered up a sample today so I don't figure it will show up for 2 or 3 weeks. Racor is butt slow.

Boy Hoot you must have some hound dog in you. Yes thats it, but the one you have here is the small one. The large on is 11" long.

With a post OEM Mega, which of the above would you recommend? Would the addition of a second fuel heater cause any problems during the summer?

If I already had a 2 micron in the line I would use the 10 micron on this filter. Have 2 heaters is not and issue because they have their own thermostat. So they will only be on when it gets down to about 35-40 degrees.

Greg,


Is this the newly anticipated Racor unit that TDP member "Racor" mentioned two weeks ago?

Integrated designs are awesome for installation. I would think Racor could provide easy installation instructions for that water sensor signal. On the otherhand, didn't they mentioned something about cutting metal fuel lines for installation?

It would be nice if GM could give a blessing to a few of these fuel filter options so a post OEM install would be less warranty troubling. Just wishing outloud I guess.

This actually seems like a pretty good setup with the all in one package. Question is though the difficulty of adding the power to it. I could probably live without the WIF and heater though, but the pump to help out my OEM and CAT secondary would be welcome. Could there be a 3rd filter in my near future??

The main focus should be on filtration performance. The pump helps reduce vapor but filtration is of prime importance.

True Hoot, than again in my case I'd probably run a 10 mic in their. I'd be going from 10 to Whatever the OEM can grab than to my 2 mic CAT. Should almost eliminate ANY possible issues I could ever have related to running dirty fuel. Plus as most lift pump pics have shown, it seems to better utilize the OEM filter as well(no banding).
