I think my fuel pump went out
 
Ok so I started the truck and let it idle for a rough 30 mins or so then I got in it hit the skinny pedal on the right a little and boom she died, when I went to go crank it it didn't start back up, so I left the key on and got out to hear like a hairdryer sound coming from my fuel tank and I'm pretty sure my fuel pump went bad not positive though. Any body ever have this happen if so I could really use an explanation haha.

Is their fuel in it? The gauge may be wrong.

Try hitting the tank with a hammer, or getting a fuel rail pressure test kit, you can rent them from autozone.

It should only prime for 5 seconds or less, usually if it tries to prime longer than that, it indicates a problem. Is there any fluid leaking?

Whine from the tank is a good thing. It means the pump is at minimum trying to work and is getting signal. If you hear it whine, check rail pressure for about 50psi +/- 2psi. Good pressure, pump whines, likely going to be spark

Mine went out about a year ago. Found easiest way to access it since it had a full tank, was to lift the bed. Dropping a full tank isn't fun.

Hm. Kinda odd. Might still want to get someone to test the system.

You got any idea what kinda power boost your gonna get? IIRC, the stock internals can only handle around 9lbs up top before the heads start floating and around 12 on the bottom end. Got a build thread for this?
