Looking to get rid of my aerospace vacum pump.it would only pull 8 at wide open throttle. Would a moroso enhanced 3 vane be okay or is the 4 vane better?

For a wet sump deal 11-12" is about as far as you want to go without doing a lot of prep. The 3 vane Moroso will probably get you there. They do make rebuild kits for the Aerospace pumps.

I had one on the last 565 I did and it pulled 11.3 @ 7000 with their pulleys. I've heard the inside of the cases wear and not sure if a rebuild can fix that.

I heard the on Aero does move a lot of air compared to the Moroso. They seem to work ok small blocks and smaller BBC.

The Moroso 3 vane moves more air than the 4 vane, but it can't pull as deep of a depression. The 4 vane moroso is designed to be aided by a dry sump and pull a deeper depression.

None of them work to well if your engine is a leaker

So how much more HP or other benefit do you think you'll get with another few inches vacuum? I wouldn't change it just for that. Now the Aerospace are more a drag race kinda deal and if it's a lake boat, you may want something that might have a bit more longevity. If that's the case, check out GZ Motorsports stuff.... Personally, I run the Aerospace stuff because it's billet and shiny which is generally good for a couple tenths at CFW (less so at the track) :yes:

I would leave it alone. It's not like you really lean on the engine anyways.....more of a show piece that gets you to the sandbar and back....lol :happy:

I got 10.9" on mine at 6200 I plan on doing a rebuild on it and hope it works the same this time around on the dyno. Mine was good for 35 hp with a standard ring pack. Going a little more low tension this time around.

I wonder if I took the relief value out of the pump if it would pull a little more.

Don't beat me up over this, it's my car that I restored. Used this before and @3500 rpm it pulled a little over 7 inches of vacuum, 12 at wot. Surprised a lot of people with a stock replacement smog pump, real cheap but does the job. Even surprised a tech at the drag strip.
