    $2 for a fuel pump which is very affordable! Replace the pump for each tank

      @Mugen West Yeah, about a month after making this it was $5 and they just kept increasing the price... I noticed they're shipping from the US now instead of chinesium.

    Never put your rigged up battery and switchgear in close proximity to your open containers of gasoline. Know a guy who is skin grafted and scarred for life doing this....

    What fuel pressure regulator are you using? Is there a cheap version of that too?

  • FroztiProductions

    I got a $12.50 generic pump on ebay. Should i throw it in? My oem pump might be on it's way out... Going in a bone stock 97 civic ex.

    I think it's lower pressure = More flow ( that's in more cases)

    I just used one of these pumps for my test stand to run LS motors,I paid $4.99 though for mine.It actually works better than the $109 in tank edelbrock pump I was first using.It is almost exact same setup as you used with the glass jar.I didn't notice any bouncing of the gauge on mine though,do you have another regulator you could try it might take some of that bouncing away.
    I think this was your best video to date.

    I bought a $2 version after watching this. For 2 bucks, I'll throw it on my shelf as a just-in-case spare.

    I love me some cheap ebay parts, but a fuel pump is something I wouldnt cheap out on for my cars. If the pump fails when you are at high boost it goes lean and you blow your engine. Fine for testing like this. But you will kick yourself if you blow the engine because of trying to save $50 on a walbro etc. Crazy how cheap they can make these things, the mind boggles.

      People are having the same issues with Walbro, even Walbro recommended sources are selling Chinese fakes that are very, very close in appearance to the real deal.

      ratgreen I have a 300lph for the turbo build. This is equivalent to the ranger pump which was a V6 so this wouldn't get far on boost.

    It's a sad state of affairs when it's literally cheaper to buy something from China and have it shipped across the world than it is to buy something American made. It's the same story for LEDs, resistors, transistors, ICs, switches, etc.

    • a21bravo
      a21bravo  2 years ago

      WeAreTwoDoorsDown A few other places are selling this for $10 so I thought it was a listing error but it's still up. The one I bought still had zero feedback for the seller.
