That Aeromotive A1000 is a good pump! I spent some time at their assembly building on they're fuel pump dyno and was pretty impressed with their stuff.MNYPIT said:lol Thanks for the help. I just got the fuel pump yesterday. It is an Aeromotive 1000, and geez, that thing is huge compared to the Holley Red I used to run.
I was hoping I did not need a bigger fuel pump, because the one I had was almost new, but I am going to be running a 454 with forged everything and a D1SC Procharger and 12 pounds of boost. Procharger told me that I would need that pump because I also eventually plan on adding a Intercooler and raising the boost. I don't know how much horsepower it will make, but I pray that I will be happy with it and not want to go to a bigger Procharger system for more power, but you guys know what that is like.Jinks said:im trying to grasp this electric fuel pump thing.. people always seem to go with a pump twice as big as they need spec wise.. are the manufacturers just lying? or do people just go overkill?
H/O Pump: For carbureted powerplants making 200-600 HP, without the use of a separate fuel pressure regulator. Similar to the popular S/S fuel pump, but internally regulated down to 7 PSI, the H/O fuel pump is ideal for carbureted, high output street cars and mild race cars alike.
Flow volume exceeds 550 lb/hr or 90 GPH at 5 PSI.
thats the pump im looking at.. is there any reason to go with a bigger one? im not going to have any 600 hp.. this one looks perfect for what i have..
I'm running an A1000 w/ my F1r setup. You would need at least that big of a pump. I wish I would have went even bigger and got a Prostar 500. Do not skimp on the fuel pump, the only mechanical pump that can handle any boosted app. would be the quickfuel race pump.Jinks said:so for an NA engine running 450-550 hp the normal street/strip aeromotive pump should be fine? is anyone here running one?
