I was looking into a fuel filtration system for my 06 2500. Was curious how many of you run a FASS or a diesel fuel filter kit https://dieselfuelfilterkits.com/03_12_cummins_fuel_filter_kit.html. (This is the link for the other system) One guy I talked to said he runs a FASS set up with a cat fuel filter and a Baldwin fuel/water separator filter because he believes those filters are better then the FASS ones. The FASS system is much more expensive curious to see if it’s worth the extra money. Thank you.

Curious what other think or will say.

I believe that the filtration is essentially the same either way you go. If you need the extra fuel flow or a lift pump, would be the only reason to go with FASS

Yeah that’s what I was thinking too. I don’t plan on making my truck even close to over 500HP so not sure if I need the lift pump side of it. Thanks!

Just get the fuel filter kit. The fass pump is not something you'll need.

Stock in tank pump is a pretty good pump, a healthy one will support 650 all day. That said I’ve had a fass on every truck I’ve owned.

I just installed the 03-12 filter kit on mine, very happy with it so far.

How does that mechanical fuel pump work with those filters that are not rated to be on the suction side? Do you have the pump plumbed in before the filters?

I'm running a FASS Titanium on my 05 along with Fleetgaurd filters I buy online. Filters (water separator and main filter) are easy to source and change. Last a long time. Easy to access for any needed service versus having to drop the tank. Cons are they are a bit expensive and can be noisy at times. If I go below 1/8 tank on a hill the pump cavitates and makes noise. Not a big deal. After I fill up I may need to bleed the system to get rid of the air. Easy process - just loosen the water separator and bump the key until fuel gushes out, then tighten the filter. I avoid it by never going below 1/4 tank. Prior to upgrading my fuel filtration setup I was going through injectors like crazy.
