I got the OEM fuel pump module from the tank for my L33, I am planning a corvette regulator/filter, since my motor is returnless....

I run a Carter inline pump on my 5.3, return line off the regulator on the fuel rail. Just make sure it has at least 60-80psi, theres usually only 3 choices. Low psi for carbs, mid for TBI systems, and high for multiport stuff.

Most of the truck motors run 2 lines with a regulator built into the fuel rail. If you don't have a built in Reg, the Corvette filter/reg is a good cheap solution. If you have a good local parts store, they have adapters to use the original fuel rail fittings and adapt them to hose or brake line.

I have an 04' LQ9 for reference, I read on pirate that the newer motors don't run a return line? I haven't had a chance to check the motor for myself as I've been out of town. Do you happen to have a part/model #?

Do you have to change any relays or fuses to run the stock in tank fuel pump, also what are you running for a fuel filter? Thanks.

If you are asking me?

I will be running a yj fuel filter (I think my frame is a 2.5 and has a frame mounted filter?).

As far as wiring, I will be adding the pump to a carberated pick-up and running my own wires to the tank, probably to the yj fuse box?
