Fuel pump upgrade

Post  BigRigTech on March 31st 2014, 7:34 am

Has anyone here used one of these Quick-fuel pumps? I sold my 850DP and I'm bought a 1050 domi from 1faststang. I plan to upgrade my fuel system from a Holley blue pump to something larger with a bypass. I have 8AN line from the tank through to the regulator.

Don't know much about that one, but it looks like a nice piece for the money...and QuikFuel makes some pretty nice stuff.
My personal favorite is a MagnaFuel 500.

It appears to be a nice piece for the price, I was looking around online and I haven't found any complaints about them. The Magna 500 is nice too but it's like twice the price Question

Keep in mind, it's advertised as a drag only application.

That's ok, my car hasn't been street legal for a long time.

The Magnafuel 500 or the a2000 Aeromotive are very reliable nice pieces. Dont know much about the one you listed but it looks nice.

Considering the price and the brand name, I believe I'd give it a spin. Wink

$308cdn locally for that pump but by the time I paid the dollar conversion and shipping/duty it would cost about the same. I'm waiting for a price from another local shop too.

Cross border shopping sucks right now. We went to Florida this month, $865US cost me $985cdn. Shipping plus 15% duty sucks too.

I ended up buying a Edelbrock 1792, 160GPH free flow. Brand new in the box and the price was too good to pass up. I also bought a bunch of AN fittings to make a #8 dual feed line for the 1050 domi I bought from 1faststang this past week. Brand new 8AN Russell fittings for $5-10 each, 1/2 what they are retail up here. Very Happy
