    Default What fuel pump to run Efi 1200 hp and forced induction

    I was going to try the race pump, but too may negatives for me to. What would you use for a 1200 hp efi twin turbo setup? I would like to stay away from aeromotive since i have had bad luck with them. I am willing to run two pumps if needed since I run two tanks. Anyone running 2 or 3 of the walbro 255 pumps? I want something that is reliable since its a lake/river boat.

    A nice little enderle would work. I purchased mine from Good Vibrations with a mount to drive it off the jesel.

    2 walbros is enough fuel to create scrap, so you must run 3 if you were going that route. I would only do 3 walbros as an in tank mount which makes a dual fuel tank setup weird (since it's a lake deal).

    What happened that makes you not like aeromotive?

    Weldon is my second choice but not cheap. If you have room for a belt drive setup it'll work. I'd say a belt drive, reservoir tank setup (good feed to external electric pump/s) or an in tank pump/s is needed if you want this to be safe in a boat.

    2,3, or even 4 walbros is a common street car mod.

    I don't know dick about EFI, but will a mechanical injection pump make enough pressure at an cranking speed to start the piece? What pressure do EFI systems run at? After startup, no issue.

    You have to use an electric pump for starting.

    I use an Aeromotive A1000 to start the engine and a 990 Enderle takes over.

    Like Ron said, an electric pump to put some pressure in the fuel rails for starting and then the mechanical pump takes over.

    I put an inexpensive in tank electric pump in this year and it has worked great.
    45 psi in the line in a second.
    Submersible fuel pump

    My experience with the Enderle is that they need gravity feed to the inlet, John Deere style.
    That wouldn't work for my application.

    I used an Aeromotive cam drive main pump and they will draw fuel up out of the side tanks.

    I'm using a electric magnafuel pro tuner 750 efi,good for 1500 hp.It's a simple hook up and lasted 4 years before the pump needed rebuilt.If your going to run gas it would work.
