Facet fuel pump for HDJ80 12v

Hello,
A personal diagnostic makes me think my fuel pump has difficulties pumping
the fuel from the tank (pump has about 250K Km).
I'm contemplating adding a Facet inline fuel pump but don't know which one
to choose from:
The #40105 pumps 2,5 to 4,5psi (0,17-0,3bars) while the #40106 pumps 4 to
6psi (0,27-0,4bars).
I've been told a story where an inline pump was added to a HDJ80 (max
pressure unknown) and the injection pump soon started sipping then leaking
diesel. Some gaskets/seals were shot and the injection pump had to be
overhauled :o(
On the other hand, the shop manual calls for, from memory, 0,25bar of fuel
pressure when tuning the injection pump on a bench.
So, I don't want to damage my old injection pump with too much pressure but
I want enough pressure to make it run properly with my current set-up
(basicaly stock) and have the potential to run future mild mods (modified
exhaust, intercooler, boost pressure, ...).
All advice/suggestion welcome, and of course hand-on experience!
Cheers,
Lio

Lio,
Why don't you fit a Walbro pusher pump?, they seem to be a
popular choice for LCs.

Which Facet pump? I have something like the 480530-K on a petrol engine,
don't know if it's any good for diesel but one thing to watch out for, it is
quite noisy.

Hi Clive, thanks for the reply.
Do you have personnal experience with it or know someone who has?
Do you know what model of Walbro pump is recommended for the HDJ80?
Looking at the autoperformanceengineering website, it seems the FRD-2 will
meet the pressure I'm looking for but will output only 10gph when the Facet
pumps 30gph. They are also twice the price...
Thanks for your comments.
Lio
