Dose raptor sell a pump that i capible of 75 psi. I know fribird sells them and there rated at 5-50 psi, but then i went to the goldenfuels web site and the same pumps were listed and rated for 5-75 at 150 gph and the other was 5-60 at 100gph. What one is true
Im looking for a good pump for wvo and D2 when its time to switch all the factory ford stuff out.

i think the ones claimed to 75 are just re-geared. wvodesigns has one i think and so does vegpower. i dont recall who told me they were re-geared but its ringing a bell.

FASS HPFP is popular. Leon has Raptor and Raw Power Pumps, there is Air Dog and Raptor, etc. they all have options its just a matter of choosing one. imho id look at Leon's pumps or FASS HPFP. you dont have to go as beefy on the D2 side.

Raptor will be fine for D2. Not for VO. Fass HPFP or Leons is the ones I would consider for VO. They both come with a good warranty. I got 20k miles out of my Fass before it died. DPP has been very good to me with warranty claim. Brand new pump is on the way.

The way it was explained to me by an Air Dog rep was that there is a "low pressure" model and "high pressure" model of the Raptor pump. The "high pressure" version is relatively new and many people do not even realize it exists. I got the one from vegpower.com and it is indeed a high pressure model that easily pumps my D2 at 65 psi.

Link to vegpower Raptor.

The raptor is sealed under vacuum, not pressure. This a very good feature.
On the fass, the seal , which us under pressure is what craps the bed and causes bearing failure and ultimitaly the motor. The raptor and Leon's pumps both seal under vacuum, thus solving the problem.

I personally have not ran Leons or Raptors pumps, but I think we now have three viable WVO pumps........Fass HPFP, WVO Designs, and Raptor.

All have good warranty coverage, so pick one that suits you, and go with it!

Man, I remember the excitement years back when Fass gave the green light to us for WVO use. Times are a changing, for the better.

If that is new type of pump from Raptor then maybe it will be ok. The price looks good & you can't beat the warranty.

Ya im prob gonna go with the raptor from veg power and get the 75psi one. Now whats the rule of thump when it comes to placement of filters? Do u pull fuel through a water seporator and then push it trough a low micron filter, with the pump in the middle? If i were to buy a heated filter/water seporator all in one unit were would I put that in??
