zildjian4life218 thanks for the reply project89. I will probably pull apart my old pump and see if the hole is offest or on center and maybe ask my g/f for one of walboro's 255 lph pumps for christmas along with that regulator. Then just gotta look into modifying the connections on the top of my tank. Im pretty sure I have got enough room to maybe have my buddy TIG some AN fittings onto the top of the pickup but idk I will have to check to make sure.

I will modify the current pickup to accept the 3/8" feed and return. Will a 255 lph handle this?
a 255lph pump will handle close to 500hp at fuel injection presures
at carb presure levels they will flow even more
tbi presur elevels will be slightly less then carb

i have a flow sheet for the areomotive 340lph pumps ill post up so u can see how much more a fi pump will flow at low presure

zildjian4life218 Lets ASSUME for our example here we have a TBI setup with 2 80lb/hr injectors and a MPFI setup with 8 20lb/hr injectors (This will make numbers easy )

Okay so again ASSUMING we give both systems the same net increase in pressure we can easily find out the extra flow.

(Since percentages are out of a 100 it is import to divide our figure of 3% by 100 to obtain .03)

20lb/hr*.03 = .6 <-- This means that we will gain .6 lb/hr per injector
20.6*8 = 164.8 lb/hr

80lb/hr *.03 = 2.4 <-- This mean that we will gain 2.4 lb/hr per injector
82.4*2 = 164.8 lb/hr

WOAH!!! this is of course assuming we give each setup the same increase in fuel pressure from factory which we can give the TBI system a larger increase since it was setup to run from 15-18psi.

vinniekq2 E? if you put 8 quarters in the bank and you get 3% interest and you put a 2 dollar bill in a different account making 3% interest,which account will make you more money?

LMAO.

um... no... Its still 3%.

You may want to delete that post as it is basically 3rd grade math (its called the associative property of multiplication and division).

no matter how you cut it.. you get 3% more flow PER injector..
****PER INJECTOR***** is 8 more than or less than 2..

if you where going to run synquental.. you'd have a point.. but with batch.. not so much

Secondl its super easy to modify a TBI regulator- probably the easiest factory regulator to modify actually, and yes it can handle the pressure.

Lastly, your injector flow rate is ALWAYS measured at 100% duty cycle. And unless you're cruising on the highway at peak power (maybe in a cop chase?) you won't be even close when cruising.

Oh, and the 2" blades are NOT the restriction on a TBI unit the stock 50mm blades can flow more than enough for 500hp- the restriction is the injectors and all the irregularities ahead of the throttle plates that disrupts airflow.


Its pretty obvious that you have NFC when it comes to fuel injection.

zildjian4life218 What do you think of this Aeromotive 340 Stealth Electric Fuel Pumps 11140 - SummitRacing.com Under Aeromotives website it says that its compatible with Chevrolet cars and trucks from 85-92. That will more than support my fuel system whether I go EFI or not... Maybe just a 255lph?

like a carb cfm there is a point that no matter how much psi you hit it with it doesn't flow more fuel through the injector ..
remember you have 2 injectors not 8.. getting 3% more flow out of an injector then times 8 makes a little differance... 3% more flow out of 2.. isn't gonna cut it..

buy the way the bbc injector rating of 80-85 is to high of a duty cycle.. for any long term use... drag car.. fine.. long hyway run.. you'ls let the smoke out of the injector drivers

I know its easy to throw around $1,000+ when its someone else's money but I was offering a very sound and much cheaper alternative to zildjian, after all we're not all millionaires.
sorry you are not getting 50 to 100 cfm out of smoothing the tbi inlet the 2) 2" blades only allow so much air no matter what you do above it or below them..

no we are not all millionaires..
never enough money to do it right. but always enough to do it twice..
if he was going for a mild 300-330 hp.. I'd say sure go for it..

now no matter what I think(650cfm) his post on that thread and him telling you you'll get to your goals with a 550cfm tbi.. well.
now if it was a 550 throttle body dry.. no fuel then maybe.. squeak by.. and thats a big if..
carry on..
