Yes fuel pressure. I ran a 38r, 238/100s on stock fuel pump and even on my "hot tune" the gauge never budged.

I suggest and have the driven diesel reg return and dual pump kits. Top quality and do what they are supposed to.

Stock pump but a larger draw straw, fuel lines, and a regulated return?

I need to get a gauge in the cab then. I can't tell you where it is right now.
I'm just searching for some more power and I know I need a system if I want to increase my nozzles. But these dang PMR's are holding me up! It makes me just wanna trade up for a 6.4. I only have 113k on this 7.3 though.

Once upon a time I thought I could get away with a stocker. Some guys have also reported help from a sump and bigger hose on the suction to help a stocker and seemed to work. However lots pressure drop over the length of plumbing during high demand. If you don't see pressure drop with 238/100s, I'm very surprised. We saw 45 hp worth on the dyno 8-10 years ago. The old Essex inline gasser pump finally died but the fuelab has taken over since.

Not to argue, just the experience I had.

I wasn't going for all out power so the "hot tune" was pretty conservative. At the time I was waiting for studs and then was going to run dual stocks to try to get some of that 45 hp worth. The truck was fun, even being conservative, but i didn't have 20x12 rims and 35s on it either.
