Yeah, I could never understand the no lift pump thing either. How much more would it have added to the price of the truck? Couldn't be much. For the most part they hold up though. That is something I need to do to mine , add a fuel pressure gauge. The Cummins is known for the the CP3 pump going because the lift pump quits and causes extra stress on the CP3. I run a pretty hot tune 100% of the time so it worries me sometimes. So far so good but my truck is starting to get some age on it ('05) and it's been running the tune for a few years now pulling my train.

Talking

when I run my maxeffort tune (around 250HP) I can drain the rails pretty quick and pop a code, with the lift pump set at 12psi it never happens, the 40over injectors really like to pass fuel but it is starving for air, but not for ever the twins are on the way s475 over factory

I spent a 5 1/2 yrs towing with a gm 6.0 gasser it did the job but left something to be desired. 3 weeks ago I found a 01 f250 with the 7.3 power stroke with only 26xxx. the first time towing with it sold me on diesel.

Not putting your truck down because you have a great truck and motor but you should go test drive a new(er) one. You think power......This is what you would look like.

a friend of mine put over 500k and never did anything to it towing all the time. my father in law is retired GM and bought a 2000 7.3 he has 240k and tows 18k 3 times a week and it is going strong. You got a great motor that will last forever. just keep cam position sensors in the glove box because they go out all the time, or every 10-20k, at least the inlaws and 2 friends motors do

On mine I only changed it when they had a recall for it and so far it has gone over 85000 miles with no problem with the cps only major problem I had was when I bought bad deisel and it plugged the fuel filter. I now only buy diesel from a station that has high volume sales such as a truck stop.
