Depends on how much HP you want to eventually make. It is said to support ~300HP. If it's leaking don't keep driving it with low pressure because it will wear out the injection pump. I have the kit on my 1st gen and it works just fine with my setup (listed in my sig).

Uh, I think it is, you just prolly don't need those lines get an aftermarket fuel filter (remote mount like Racor) just buy the spacer and the pump, spend less on those, bypass all the stock filter and the fuel heater if its not really needed, its what I'm doing, but I'm in South Texas and winters aren't much here. Remember the electric fuel pumps would be whining the whole time you have the engine on, it seems to me it would get real old.

I can hear the Airdog on my truck when I turn the key on, but once I start the engine, all I hear is 12 valve music.

Like the man said, you'll hear it even if its a holley black or blue pump....but when the music starts, all is fine!
Now then, theres something about filling my crankcase is diesel that rubs me the wrong way, so I always block off the Mech. pump, run a good electric, wired into the Hobbs switch plumbed into theoil system just below the stock oil pressure sending unit.
That way if you ever loose oil pressure, your fuel is cut off.
Best to have plenty of pressure though....its hard on the IP if you don't.....

Whichever pump you go with, just don't go over 15 PSI, use a regulator and turn it down to about 12....
