CPR Fuel System

CPR

All I can say so far about our ’97s new fuel system is, Wow! Easily one of the best modifications a 7.3L Power Stroke owner can install on their truck…

 


It’s a product that does exactly what it claims to do, and the folks at the dieselsite have gone out of their way to make the install process as straight-forward (and fool-proof) as possible. Not only did the kit come with an 18-page install manual with detailed photos, but all the major components were labeled as well (see photo).

The post-install test drive yielded a noticeable difference in the mid-range and top-end power of the truck. Startups seem quicker, the truck idles smoother, and by the Seat-Of-The-Pants meter we gained some hp. No doubt, our Stage 1 injectors are getting the consistent fuel they need now. We’re looking into running the truck on a Super Flow dyno next week.

Also, while removing the factory fuel bowl and lift pump in the engine valley, a slow leak in the lift pump was discovered—another fueling problem that was more than likely ailing our trucks performance even more. And because the CPR system deletes the lift pump (and is plugged off), we don’t have to worry about it any longer.
