I have been worrying about this. I plan on pressurizing the system before first start to fill the cooler to capacity.

After that, I will watch the pressure at each start carefully. With the 3 quart preluber I have installed I hope to mitigate any issues with pressure at initial start.

Where did you tie in with the pre-luber? That will probably mitigate any issues. I really like the idea but just haven't ever found a setup I liked. I've toyed with the idea of a prelube pump too.

A pump was an option. I would have drawn from the pan through a filter and injected through the oil galley with that set up.

Mine is less complicated IMO. I Tee'd off the oil sensor to a solenoid. That feeds a 1 gallon oxygen tank that's upside down. Flip switch and pressurized oil ( about 3 quarts) is sent directly to the oil galley. Start truck and let pressure build. Turn switch off. The tank now holds pressurized filtered oil ready for the next start up.

Whats the point of a preluber?
Is it because of the fancy filter setup? Ive seen the preluber on stock trucks too.

Mostly just to push oil through before cranking or starting. I think it is especially good for engines that sit for a while then start.

Because of the stickifier additives in modern oils there is a film that remains on parts for an extended period. So, yes pre-lubing is great for those applications when the engine goes extended periods between starts. On really big engines pre-lubing is required because the system is so large it simply takes too long to carry lube to all points after start so that's done before.

For me, I like the idea of pre-lubing before each start. Building some oil pressure before crank is just something I've wanted to do for a while.

Additionally, mitigating oil starvation issues that may be caused by the large capacity oil cooler won't hurt.

Since Power Driven Diesel sent out for the powder coating I am not sure of specifics but I did order candy apple red with metal flakes.

Nice build. That's the turbo combo I want to use when I go compounds. Can't wait to hear about performance.

Lift pump changes

Originally I went with the PDD modded lift pump that runs from the cam. I think that's a great pump, but I don't want any fuel starvation up in the 600 HP and above range.

So, on to the predator pump. I took off the modded stock pump and installed the predator.
Plumbing is next.....
From the Sump to a pre filter mesh to a Baldwin fuel water separator to the Predator suction side

Then from the predator to the dual Cat 2 micron filters and up to the P7100.

Awesome build, thanks for all of the pictures. What input have you gotten regarding pre-filtering with the predator lift pump? I would swear to have read that no pre-filter can be used which always seemed problematic. I might just be mis-remembering though. I have a nice pre + post filtration setup and have been trying to figure out what pump I want to use. Had been leaning towards a Fuelab, but love the idea of staying mechanical.
