Here I am holding the Y-Tee and Filter from the exit Port straight down, I am 1" too long.
Also you can see the fuel pump is in the OEM location on the other side.
How is your over all size in comparison with the dw400?
Those pics, were more for other folks looking in wondering what we were babbling about. You had meantioned you already had some really good pics from rmb.I have those pictures and instructions from Full-Race. When you tear your pump apart, you'll see the problem. They moved the pump to the otherside, and there is nothing holding the pump in place like the OEM side which I posted a picture.
Also the "sock filter" they show is in the Install Kit, but it's not like the one in the Motorcraft Pump Assembly which I posted the picture, that keeps the pump in place.
Being submerge in fuel , I would think that the fuel would act as a damping force during off roading keeping it from really moving to much or forcefully. But it is still a valid concern. Perhaps create "wedges" to keep it firmly in place.PS: I just measured the stock pump, it is 4 3/4", my new pump is 5 3/8".
I am trying to locate some 7/16" hose to do my mockup, as the 3/8" hose is difficult to remove once installed on the barbs without cutting off.
I already have in my mind, how I am going to modify it for this "1st draft". When I get the old assembly out, I will tear it apart and figure out a more permanent solution so I can add a mini filter inside.
I might also look at doing as the final picture you showed, and try swapping the location and moving the pump to the other hole. I just don't like it not being securely held with the oem filter & tabs which I showed. I can foresee that if I go off-road (which I do) that a rough road could make the pump "swing" and move if not held securely like the OEM design.
Or act as an additional force if the fuel is constantly swishing around. And then you definitely don't want to run your tank low either.Being submerge in fuel , I would think that the fuel would act as a damping force during off roading keeping it from really moving to much or forcefully.

But, I keep thinking, not too many people have reported LPFP issues due to the stock oem filter getting clogged? It MIGHT be a contributing factor why some guys (like me) have a weaker LPFP ... possibly it is partially clogged. I will find out shortly when I swap out the old LFPF Assembly.
I ended up filling up Friday with out thinking about. So no pump install this weekend.View attachment 167345
I put the OEM lpfp in the box my Walbro 450lph came in. The Walbro was tight in the box. The stock oem lpfp is between 3/4" to 1" shorter.
Looking at your DW, I think it is very close in total height to my Walbro 450.
If you are not quite ready, let me build my mockup first. I should have that hose sometime this week (7/16" i.d. hose is tough to find - it's an unusual diameter) ... but 7/16" will fit tight enough to make good mockup, but not so tight like the proper 3.8", that I should be able to easily remove them.
When I get it finalized in the 3/8" 30R10 hose, I will show a picture with lengths I used, especially as your DW is very close in total height to my Walbro 450.
Sorry for the late response havent been on here in a while..@Blown F-150 what other mods does @looqw have?
I too am curious of the results and the similarities and differences. I know that whatever the results, before I get my GTs and Manifolds installed, I will have my XDI-35 installed. I also need to have all my favourites (Straight Premium, Stock w/speed limiter off for Dyno, and a bunch of Ethanol tunes all the way to pure E85 (which measures at E65). I also still have some jugs of pure methanol to increase it to actual E85.
PS: I have never done a mixture of my pure E85 mixed with 25% pure methanol. I would like to see if the visual tester still works.
You can try "sneaking up at it" ... to see if the HPFP is keeping up. And if all is good, just get Brett to prepare you an E30 (or whatever you plan)...I am going to ask brett if it would be safe to try out some e30 on the same tune and see if it will still maintain the desired psi.
Yeah, before I bug brett to make an e30 specific one or higher I will see how it reacts to a bit of E at a time.You can try "sneaking up at it" ... to see if the HPFP is keeping up. And if all is good, just get Brett to prepare you an E30 (or whatever you plan).
Start with E20 (that is all I can push right now, until I insert my LPFP Assembly and see the result). Then keep increasing until you hit your desired E85 concentration. I expect @Blown F-150 has shown you how to determine the true concentration of Ethanol in the fuel. If not, I have a cheap method using graduated cylinders, which I found more accurate and cheaper than the Ethanol concentration bottle I bought on Amazon. Also, I throw a lot less Fuel away with the graduated cylinders than the Bottle. On Amazon, they show a marks from E0-E100. But in reality, it only goes from E0-20 and E80-100. From E20-E80 it is BLANK, and the best you can do is "guess" if it is in "no man's land".
Once I get my fueling resolved, I will then get a few different tunes. E30, E40, E50 and E85 pure (which is E65).
Also, post the results if you can. Preferrably a "before & after"; and I will do the same. I do have my XDI-35 waiting to be installed, either if the LPFP doesn't do the trick or when I decided to upgrade my Turbos.
You have my cell. text whenever.Yeah, before I bug brett to make an e30 specific one or higher I will see how it reacts to a bit of E at a time.
Also he hasnt shown me how to determine true concentration however, if my memory serves me correct he has explained that he tested our only local place to get e85 and its actually measured out to be better than e85 everytime.
Yeah for sure, you just want to see the Desired vs actual graphs w/ rpm graphs?
