If I am trying to achieve at least 65psi of fuel to the injectors would a 100GPH pump be sufficient? And would it be important in increase line diameter?
I am running stock injectors now and see no reason to go larger if I can not supply adequate fuel
Tell me if the statements are correct below.
- A 100gph pump will provide more fuel pressure which will return me better fuel economy and supply the starving rear cylinders?
-Installing 90H.P. injectors with out a better fuel pump is useless?
-If your goal is to stay around a reliable 450-500 h.p. then you do not need anything larger than a 100gph pump?
-You do not need to increase fuel line diameter when installing a 100gph pump to get maximum benefit of the new pump?
Thanks y'all. I am trying to maximize my fuel economy and efficiency as I pack on the miles (130K)
1. 65psi to the injectors is more than enough. I would recommend 55-60 tops at a CONSTANT pressure.
2. A 100 gph pump will supply adequate fuel to stock and larger injectors. It will easily supply enough fuel for even 190's. The Airdog 100 is more than enough for 90% of the trucks out there. The 150 flows more, but isn't really necessary. The price is the same on both which is why I chose the 150, even though it is more labor intensive to install.
3. If installing upgraded injectors I would recommend at the minimum you ran an Airdog 100 or 150 and a regulated return system under the hood. You could skip the reg. return and just use a stage 1 kit with a rear crossover line if you got rid of the factory HFCM and installed a Raptor pump (which is a regulated pump).
4. The factory HFCM will easily supply stock injectors with a steady supply of fuel. IMO it will supply a stage 1 injector well enough too. Anything bigger and you need the Airdog for a pusher pump to the HFCM, if not a Raptor to replace the HFCM completely.
5. I'm not mentioning FASS here, because I personally do not recommend them due to all the failures I've witnessed and/or heard about.
I'm sure I left something out. Keep the questions coming.
