Fuel Cooler

Have everything to start my e-fuel conversion.

Want to add a fuel cooler, has anyone ever used a SD tranny cooler for this application?

I bought the large SD tranny cooler(31 row) for my trans now I have the smaller one (12 row) sitting idle.

I figure it should hold up to the fuel pressure on the return side after the regulator if it was designed to handle the full pressure output of the E4OD.

Any thoughts out there on this?

Thanks!

Re: Fuel Cooler

I use a little tranny cooler for a fuel cooler. It will work fine.

Re: Fuel Cooler

Im running one like this (but mine was cheaper) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ALUMI...item563d1575e2

But I would run the cooler you have in a heart beat.

Re: Fuel Cooler

I have to ask why would you run a fuel cooler?

When fuel enters the head it going to be coolant temperature in the matter of seconds and any effect the cooler has what just be wasted.

Re: Fuel Cooler

as fuel recirculates it picks up heat, any chance you get to cool the return line down some will help. it will help milage and power an eek

Re: Fuel Cooler

When I'm towing and stop to fuel my fuel tank is hot to the touch. I'm hoping cooling the fuel helps fuel economy on longer trips and hotter days.
Might also help the longivity of the fuel pump(s) also.

Re: Fuel Cooler

I have often wondered the point. I never really thought that cool fuel would make a bit of power difference in this application but heat on the pumps, that's an idea.

Re: Fuel Cooler

I'm not sure what pump you're using, but that cooler should be fine as long as you are using one of the smaller pumps. If the cooler has at least a -6 inlet and outlet you'll prolly be fine with any pump.

After the regulator there should be minimal pressure, at that point you just need to keep fuel flow volume in consideration, and will the cooler actually pose a restriction.

I run a small cooler in my fuel system, but I don't have any data to tell if it contributes to keeping my fuel cool. The pump and filters do not even get warm though.
