Raptor pumps carry a 1 year warranty if ran on wvo

I don't know if anyone knows about this. I have been looking for pumps and a couple websites say that Raptors have a life time warranty even if you run wvo through it. Not true, I just talked to AirDog and they said if you run wvo through the pump it is a 1 year warranty.

On that note, does anyone have a suggestion for a pump. I think I will end up going with the Raptor anyways cause it seams to have a good reputations but, I'm always looking for alternatives. Has anyone used the pump from WVO Designs.

i have orderded from wvodesigns, not received or installed yet.

usdiesel parts has a fair price on FASS HPFP pumps, as well as a company in florida. but to get the warranty be sure you get the paperwork and send it in.

go with what raptor says. chances are if its a lifetime the selling company is supporting it. so be sure THEY will replace it. this happened to DFA.

I just replaced my diesel mechanical fuel pump with a Raptor in preparation for a Vegistroke installation. So far, so good. It's loud, but seems to work well. I think the FASS is just as loud from what I've read. I'll probably mount it with rubber washers at some point.

Be careful when buying the Raptor. I think most vendors only sell a "low pressure" model that can only achieve about 50psi. You need around 65psi for the 7.3L. I got my "high pressure" Raptor from vegpower.com and it was indeed a high pressure model as advertised. Air Dog told me over the phone that there is no way to tell the difference between a "low pressure" model and a "high pressure" model without giving them the model number. It's confusing, so good luck!

My fass was loud till I put the rubber feet on it to insulate it from the frame. Now its a very faint humm in the background that you really can not hear over the noise of the motor.

ridiculously_necessary, why did you decide to go with the wvo designs pump. What pump were you running before. Did you have problems with it. Thanks.

I have researched Raptor a couple times. I have replaced and still use Fass HPFP pumps. I dont think the raptor is able to produce 65+ pounds of fuel pressure at volumes I need. I may keep up on D2, but VO is a different critter than D2.

Just my opinion though. I know if you buy from Fass directly you get a 4 year warranty, and if problems arise, the customer service will be more prompt.

Untill I get my hands on a pump from Leon for testing, I am rolling on Fass HPFP. Until Leon gets me a pump for testing, this will not change.

I am running on the round head HPFP Fass at the moment on my truck, and ordered one for the Excursion direct from Fass.

Leon has some great design ideas that I hope prove to work. Leon is one sharp cookie, and is trying to solve the faults in the Fass. Stay tuned.......

they are cheaper than FASS and I need two pumps. im ditiching the mechanical setup i have. the PO installed a cheap system and it stopped working, i pulled it out a few weeks ago. it was a long and arduous task of removing two heater hoses (took about 5 mins).

another reason is i am of the same opinion as veggin, hes a sharp guy and ill give the pumps a shot.

I am tempted to buy one of his pumps as a spare. Leon is a good dude and stands behind his products. His warranty is the best. No questions asked, he will replace it. I have most of his products.
