The AFE 42-12033 DFS780 Fuel System with Full-Time Operation for your 2011-2012 Dodge 6.7L Cummins offers you a complete fuel system solution to replacing the factory lift pump in your Cummins pickup. The fuel in your truck contains contaminants, water and air/vapor which reduces power and can cause damage to your injectors. The AFE DFS780 Fuel System features a patent-pending design capable of removing power-robbing entrained air, water and contaminants. The DFS780 ensures constant availability for your CP3 injection pump, while improving throttle response and horsepower at all RPMs.
Clear High-Impact Polycarbonate Sight Glass:
Allows visual inspection of fuel.
Helical Bronze Spur Gears:
Bronze gears more forgiving of contaminants than steel gears. The Helical spur gear design runs quieter than straight cut gears.
Billet 6061-T6 Aluminum Manifold:
Eliminates porosity concerns with cast aluminum.
"Marine Grade" Motor:
Protected against dust intrusion and powerful water jets.
Horsepower & Flow:
The DFS780 can be used on a totally stock truck, it was engineered for modified vehicles. BSFC (Brake Specific Fuel Consumption) for most modern turbocharged diesel engines is about 0.36 lbs/HP/hr. Since #2 diesel weighs about 7 pounds/gallon, which gives us about 19.5 HP/gallon/hr. The DFS780 will flow enough fuel (at rated pressure) to support over 2000 HP.
Plug & Play Installation:
Supplied harness attaches directly to battery and utilizes Deutsch weather-proof connectors. No cutting or modifications of the stock fuel lines required. Vehicle can easily be returned to stock.
The DFS780 is powered by your ignition and can be run independently or in parallel with the stock fuel pump.
PEEK Bearing Wear Surfaces:
The DFS780 spur gears ride on PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) bearing surfaces to reduce both noise and wear.
Contoured CNC Machining Of Manifold Passages:
Enhances flow through the manifold to reduce pressure drop due to flow restrictions.
Direct Bolt-on Steel Mounting Bracket:
Heavy duty bracket mounts to the frame and utilizes existing hole to secure.
Fuel Pressure Gauge Port:
1/8 NPT port allows customer to attach an external pressure gauge to monitor fuel pressure.
I'm going with 3 stars because.. When I changed out the old lift pump to the new one, I found that the fuel filter is Extremely small! I would say that the filter belong in a diesel golf cart, not in a Cummins 2500 6.7. The filter was completely clogged, and Thank God it didn't damage anything up to that point. Now, the lift pump... I've gone through a handful of tanks and I've seen very little gain in MPG to where it's hardly noticeable. Since I've installed this on my 2012 Ram 6.7, I've had a MUCH harder time starting the truck! It takes roughly 4-7 seconds just to start. So now I have to worry about a starter going out quicker than I would have liked. I have talked with the company, and they have 0 clue on what's going on, and was 0 help. Honestly, if I knew what I was getting myself into, I wouldn't have even bought this. I'm not sure if when it was "inspected" it was really inspected to AEF specs, or if I just have a bad lift pump. Be very careful buying this, you'll spend more money than just buying and installing!
