To those running Fuel Lab pump

I am in the process of getting all my pieces together for my fuel system. I am planning on running a 5/8 line to my 41401 pump/filters then a 1/2 to a Y block and 3/8 to either head.

What size return lines are you running?

Can you run the 41401 off factory wiring/relay safely?

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

Im running the 41402 off the factory wiring/relay and havent had any problems. I ran 5/8 line to the pump from a sump and then run 1/2 up to the motor then it necks into 3/8 as it goes into the itp bowl delete system. I just ran a 3/8 line back to the tank as the return and all seems good. I have not ran the pump on the full speed, just the low speed and it holds 65 psi without dropping 1psi at wot.

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

If its the one from dennis, the factory wiring is not large enough. I ran 10 gauge wire from the battery to a relay triggered by the factory wiring, and then to the pump, ground back to the battery. I also used a 30A inline fuse.

Aggie, what size sticks are you running?

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

Read the directions and run it at 1/2 speed. You shouldn't need any more fuel than that and it will be easier on the pump and wiring.

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

I have a 3/8's return line, and it seems to be doing just fine.

I would run a relay and 10 gauge wiring to the pump so it can get all the amperage it wants, with a 30 amp fuse.

racehauler, is the reduced speed actually 50%? I'm wondering if that is enough if you have larger injectors.....

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

Ah, in that case, my little 275's should not be a problem. I assume this is the newer version of the pump, with the ring terminals?

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

im running 285 hybrids with cleaned up 200%'s.

Guess i should check out the wiring, but mine has been fine so far on the stock wiring. mine is the next size up pump set at slow speed.

Re: To those running Fuel Lab pump

I also run a separate 30a relay triggered by stock wiring. I also currently run mine on half speed but it is not enough, pressure drops at wot. Yes my injectors are stupid big and stupid fast . One of these days I'll get a hobbs or a wot switch to kick the pump on high speed. More than likely I'll do a hobbs set at 50 psi or so.
