Default ******** shoddy fuel filter plus more filtration

I'm looking to get rid of the stock "bowl" fuel filter setup on the frame rail on my 2011. I would like to run a 10 micron into a 2 micron spin on filter setup. My issue though is as far as I can read it seems I would be pioneering this. My question is A) does anybody know of somebody who has already done what I want to do, B) what fitting will I need to get the stock fuel lines to connect the lines for a fuel filer base like this one: https://www.napacanada.com/en/p/NGF4309

thanks.

check out dieselsite's option for this...not exactly what you are looking for but at least its engineered.

Took a look at it before. It's expensive and I want to use spin on filters because they're cheap and readily available at any equipment dealer or parts store.

Yes you can do it. I will be doing this soon. I have gathered my parts and fitting and built my bracket. I literally have zero down time from now til after the first of the year. I will be leaving my stock filter in place. I did the exact same filters and bases on my 6.0 liter and the stock fuel filter was in place for 50k and looked new. I changed it when I did my cummins swap and ran that fuel filter for about 8 years in the stock pump Zero issues or filter falling apart.

I am using two nappa 4770 bases, one 3406 (5 Mic) filter and one 3405 (14 mic) filter. I have also used a 3005 filter (3 Mic) when the 3406 was not avaiable. I am using some 1/2X-8an male and female fittings from summit, (russell or vibrant brand I believe) to make the quick disconnects from the stock fuel lines. My two filter bases are hard mounted with a brass pipe. There is a small offset in the filters. Then everything from there is -8 pushloc jic fittings from a local hydro shop. I have about $140 in my setup and that was buying two of each filters. FYI you can buy the the original filter bases that dieselsite uses off ebay for about 50 bucks a piece dahl/baldwin model 65. I was going to go that route but decided no to because oreillys or napa do not stock those filters. And if I needed one in a pinch the parts store would not have it.

That's awesome. I'll do some more research tonight on it and look at those parts.

It worked on my 6.0 hfcm for over 130k. And if the 6.7 lpfp is an upgrade for the 6.0 guys I would assume it will be fine. Although the 6.7 may require more fuel pressure and gph to the hpfp than the 6.0 did. I know that the 6.0 didnt have a hpfp but you know what I mean.

What are you doing for the double fittings? Are you splitting it into two line then back into one after the filter?

edit: Went and crawled under the truck and realised there's two lines coming and and two going out so that answered my question.

So just ordered all of my stuff online. two napa 4770 filter bases, p1212 connections from fass off of summit to connect to the original ford quick locks, 6 feet of 1/2 inch braded fuel line, 4 1/2 npt connectors, a dozen clamps and a ten and two micron baldwin bf971 and bf 1268 respectively. I'll be putting it all together during christmas brake.
