I know fuel filtration on 3rd gens is beat to death, but I can't find pictures of this specific kit (other than the manufacturer's stock photo's). Anyone have any? I'm curious how it ties in to the stock fuel lines, as it says no permanent modifications are required. GDP MK-2 https://www.glacierdieselpower.com/i-1202-03-07-dodge-ram-5-9l-gdp-mk-2-filter-kit.html

It looks quick, easy, simple, etc. It's 2 micron, and replacement filters are cheap. I have been researching all the options, build it yourself kits, CAT filters, the mopar kit looks nice but filtration doesn't seem any better than the stock filter. I like this being downstream of the stock filter, 2 micron, bolt on kit, and right before the high pressure pump. I'd also like to install a fuel pressure sensor/switch/gauge but need to do some more research.

My truck is an 07 5.9L, basically 100% stock. No big plans down the road, maybe a built trans, aftermarket muffler, oem replacement injectors (currently at 150k miles), and possibly a mild tuner after trans is built. Plan is to keep this truck "forever".

Easy install, ability to also connect a gauge after the filter so you know when a filter change is required.
No pics but I have had this on my truck for years.

I hear good things about this GDP kit from my 03-07 buddies.

Reasonably priced, too.

Only downside I see is for the price you are not far off the dual filter kits that will let you run both a big fuel filter and a big water filter.

Nicely done utahman.

And I thought I was way ahead of the curve in changing my stock 25 micron filter/separator to an 11 micron filter/separator.

filters not quite long enough... add some extras to it and send it into double duty as a bump stop :grin2: How many miles between filter swaps with that cannon?


here is a vulcan kit...

LOL I am at 30k and fuel pressure has not Moved. Just guessing but 40k I will change it either way. BBI injectors still Purring.

nice! I swap at 25k, 2x after 25k rail pressure started behaving odd. swapped filter & it was all good so I settled on a 25k swap interval.

Thanks for all the replies. I like it and will prob get it eventually, maybe in a couple months. Just spent more than I wanted on buying the truck plus a lot of little things to fix/etc. But I got a really awesome truck that should last a long time. Basically I'm just researching everything I wanna do to death so I know what to buy when it comes time.

As for the pressure gauge/sensor, what options are there? I've been looking and not too many pop up other than a few generic gauge kits. I really would love to have a sensor that could be read by an obd2 program or tuner, not sure if that's possible though. If I do go with a gauge, I'd prob plan to down the road also do trans temp with it in a dual pod above the rear view mirror, then maybe a boost gauge on the A pillar in an srt10 pillar to retain grab handle.

Edge Insight CTS2 -- I get fuel pressure with it, but not off the OBDII port, as fuel pressure is not available from the ECM on our trucks. I had to do an Edge add on kit. I plumbed a hose into the CP3 and the kit has an inline sensor that reads the fuel pressure from the hose, then sends it electronically to the CTS2 monitor. I also plumbed an EGT sensor into the top of the exhaust manifold and run it into the CTS2 display to monitor my EGT's.

I use an Edge CTS Evolution on stock setting and tune with a Smarty S-06 Pod.
The EGTs, Oil psi, and LP psi are add-ons but RP, Boost and a whole lot of others are picked up from the OBDll.

Thanks for the info, I'll look into the edge as I like that option best rather than adding a bunch of add on gauges.

So for what it's worth, I also came across the CAT dual filter kit 03-12 Cummins Fuel Filter Kit and it looks great also. Seems to make more sense to have the water separator also. For a little more money it may be worth it. I have a 35 gal tank which would hinder install a bit, but I could get it done... Just curious what the better option is. Filtration seems similar, but this one adds a massive filter and a separate W/S. I'm not worried about the extra ~$100, that's little expense if it's the right choice. Anyone have this kit?
