As far as the splicing goes its not a "big" issue so long as you do a good job. I had to change out the pump in my Suburban with one that needed a different connector. It's crimped and solder and then heat shrink on it. Gas doesn't conduct electricity. If you think about it there are exposed connections on the top of the pump itself.
bwd 23087 is 50 psi - in the same configuration Tim?

I installed the 40psi regulator from advance and koeo the fuel pressure locked up at 41psi. I was excited...... then I started the engine. Fuel pressure was all over the place, needle bouncing violently from 38-50psi. and the engine was loping. Due to the fact that I have had previous bad experiences with the lesser expensive parts store chains, I decided to order one from my local dodge dealership. Installed it today and pressure is a rock solid 40psi at idle and only deviates about three pounds when you bury the throttle and quickly recovers to 40psi. Engine idles slick as glass and performs beautifully at all rpms.
The regulator from dodge was $102.00
Thanks to all.

The MCXs need between 58 and 62 psi. Well, that's what the Indmar fuel chart shows so I think 50 would probably create a lean condition.

I need some help, some of you may have seen my other post about my 99 sportstar with the MX Plus 310hp dieing. I have it determined it only happens around a half tank of fuel so I'm leaning towards the fuel filter. Now the problem is I just got back from the dealer and to avoid to much of a rant they told me they can't help. Where do I find a fuel filter? Also if i need a pump has anyone found a replacement? Here is a picture of the top of my module. This forum has been a huge help so far so thank you to everyone.
