(I'm new to this),,I bought a 95 2500 12v with 242xxx auto,brand new 4" exhaust also the kid before me took the fuel plate out and turned the star wheel all the way towards the front of the truck, he bypassed the stock lift pump(from what I know) and put a gold flo electronic fuel pump on, there's a pump in the tank too,I'm not asking for smoke, doesn't really matter to me, but with out a fuel plate and the star wheel turned wouldnt it smoke a bit? Also just changed fuel filter,just doesn't make sence to me:banghead:

I had two lift pumps and still had 3 psi fuel pressure, granted there was no spring in the OFV at the time.

Either way, these engines like a higher fuel pressure then your normal electric fuel pump puts out, I would recomend atleast checking the OFV and possible getting a fuel pressure gauge.

There are a lot of people that inaccurately call different mods 'investments', a fuel pressure gauge is an investment.
