Re: Fuel problems

Ok what have you done???

The car has been tuned and is now running lean because the pump is failing????
OR
You have placed the charger on without modifying the fuel system???

If it is the later. Than you need to upgrade your injectors to atleast 24lbs (blue tops???) and run an additional inline fuel pump if you don't want to go for a larger intank pump. Leave the fuel reg alone. Finally you will need to get you fuel system reprogramed.

I am running a 9 psi powerdyne charger with 30lbs (red tops) injectors, inline pump and standard reg with no fueling problems.

When cubes aren't enough.

The charger was placed on without modifying the fuel system.

I'd prefer just to go the intanke pump as far as i can see would be easier and cheaper and do just as good of a job.
How much and where would i get those 24lbs injectors?

Re: Fuel problems

24lbs injectors -


http://www.injectionperfection.com/h...ce_list_2.html
IPINJ-24FM Injector, Ford Motorsport 24lbs $129.00

That's about the cheapest I've personally seen them around, however if you're friends with your mechanic, it's possible he might be able to shave a little off that..

Changed the goal.. Screw the turbo, I want a 300rwkw NA I6

That is an old list (2002) and if that is the price for each injector. Way to much.Try

I haven't used them. Also they don't seem to have the 24lbs.
