Re: fuel pump

would you run it as a lift pump? there is no point in putting a pressure pump after the HFCM because if you psi drops it means it cant keep up (flow enough fuel through it) there for a aditional pump will do nothing. Best is to do a airdog as a pusher or the airdog 2 standalone

Re: fuel pump

Brentos - Couldn't the holley pump be used as a pusher pump?

Dwall - are you talking about using a holley red or black pump like the cummins guys use on their trucks?

Re: fuel pump

Unless you have aftermarket injectors and a need for lots of fuel, the only thing you could add by installing more/different fuel pumps is problems and less dependability.

Just running a programmer with no other mods on stock injectors, you could easily lose fuel pressure and run out of fuel. Mine does it now, I lose fuel if I hold it WOT in my race tune.

Re: fuel pump

Yea was plannin on using it as a pusher

I have stock injectors for now but does the fuel psi still not fluctuate when you get on it say at a drag strip like i said im still learning and research but looks like if you keep your psi up all the time it could do nothing but help

Re: fuel pump

I replaced my stock pump because I was dropping to 25psi under WOT. I used a FASS, but now I am kinda worried because of all the FASS failure threads...

I don't know much about pusher pumps and how they work. Just seems like the stocker would hold it back. That is why I did the whole system...

Re: fuel pump

I use a Fass and I maintain fuel pressure just fine, even at WOT.

Do you use that as pusher, or does that replace the stock pump...
