A good friend of mine has a stock 2001 and the VP44 is dead, followed the flow chart for checking it and it is junk. So know here is the million dollar question or $1500 to $2500 question and that is where and what to get in a VP44. His truck is stock other then the exhuast and its a daily driver. there are no major plans to bomb this and like i said its daily transportaion more then anything. he was looking at Bluechip VP44X I think. What do you guys think or suggest??

Thanks for information.

Jon

I'd go SO VP-44 save a grand or more if you install (online thier $1100 plus shipping), and get a performance lift pump. i.e. airdog and you still have cash for some RV 275 injectors. My 2 cents.

My truck is stock except for the BHAF and the 4" exhaust. I put in a Stage II from Northeast Performance Diesel. This pump is pretty hot, but smokes a bit. I plan on bombing mine in the future so I went this route. He may be happy with The Stage I. Supposedely adds 60HP and is $1800 Dodge/Cummins Fuel System

Call them, they'll give you good info.

:agree2:
I agree with that... I would be looking to improve MPG numbers not you HP/TQ number when fuel is $5 bucks a gallon or did we all forget about that??? :w:

Well I'm getting way better fuel mileage since I'm not so heavy on the throttle to keep it from smoking!

Where I live here in Canada, Cummins dealers and Anyone else that's into injector pumps claim nobody can rebuild the VP's. I think that's a crock of s**t, somebody must rebuild them.:w:
