Probably will cost more when you count the cost of the fuel pressure regulator with the DFA one does NOT have.

I don't think this is correct...per the product description:

"...The kit will include EVERYTHING needed to do the job except the tools. This kit is adjustable but comes preset to ~65psi and is applicable to 1999-2003 7.3..."

Probably just an adjustable check valve spring though.

I suspect the long hex part on the near left of the picture is an inline regulator

OTOH, when you have the ITP kit, it looks so professionally made and fits like it was meant to.

Agreed! But, if it works, there's a $300 difference to consider.

I guess it's just a beer or champagne decision.

$270 difference. By the time you consider a real regulator which is about $140 and a gauge that is about $25, you have about $100 of difference. That "regulator" is a pretty cheesy looking unit when you compare it with the Aeromotive A1000-6 unit.

I'm just comparing with what they are offering.

If you want to make a direct feature for feature comparison, it's probably more expensive than the ITP unit. Including what you've pointed out the ITP unit uses better and more expensive hoses and fittings. The fuel line and barbed fitting provided can't cost much. But again, if it works as advertised and doesn't end up dumping fuel all over the engine after a few years, it's like comparing guages to an idiot light, depending on the end user the cheaper unit may be sufficient.
