Rons Alky Fuel Pump

Post  John Myrick on January 22nd 2012, 3:52 pm

I've been reading as much as I can about switching over to alky. The one thing I can't seem to find much about is the fuel pump. I notice on Rons site it shows HP levels for certain size pumps. Size 0 up to 650 hp, size 0 1/2 650-950 hp and size1 950+ hp. I'm assuming these pumps are sized according to their volume of fuel flow. Could you use the size 1 pump on a engine that's not 950+ hp and put a regulator after the pump ? It seems to me you would have to install a regulator after the pump regardless of the size.

Just thinking out loud before switching to the dark side.

Thanks in advance for the comments.

best thing to do IMO is call James Monroe and get a complete system from him, he will size the kit to fit your needs, trying to piece a used deal together is asking for trouble. A 1/0 pump is pretty damn big, you can make it work but at your power level a 0.5 is more than enough, and you wont have to have all the extra bypasses etc.

Long ways off before I switch over- if I switch over. Just trying to get as much info as possible.

James or Scott Offerman (358T on Dragraceresults.com) will stear you right. There are differnces in not just volume, but overall fuel curve in pumps. The cool thing is they will help you out even if you buy used stuff. That being said, having Killerrons set you up new from the jump is probably the safest and best way to go.
