Both motors take an aftermarket fuel pump quite nicely. There are several manufactures: CP3, Snow Performance, and AirDog are the best ones out there and are used extensively on rigs that make 600+ HP and 1000ft-lbs. Couple a fuel pump with ported injectors and a good tune and you can be making some wicked power.
98.5 24 valves are not common rail, they switched to common rail in 2003.
