Do you have an upgraded lift pump or a fuel pressure gauge?

Cheapest bang for your buck on a 24v is a tuner like an edge juice or quadzilla adrenaline. But the reason I asked about lift pump a fuel pressure guage is the stock lift pump is barely adequate on a stock truck. When adding power you need more fuel and if you're not getting at least 10psi of fuel to the injection pump at all times then you're setting yourself up for injection pump failure. I personally would recommend a good lift pump like a raptor, airdog, or fass and 1/2 inch fuel lines from tank to injection pump first. Also a fuel pressure gauge unless you get a tuner with a monitor because they can display your fuel pressure.
