Everybody knows you can not run the supercharged CTS-V Cadillac/ ZL1 Camaro at the full 17.5 volts provided by the Kenne Bell boost-a-pump. Your stock fuel system wil shut down. LFP came up with the solution!
Add the amp dial in box. This addition allows you to dial back to a safe 15 volts. Everyone knows that You can't make horsepower without fuel.
Pump sizing is relatively easy. If your engines output is to be increased 75%, then it's fuel pump output must be capable of supplying 75% more fuel.
75% more power - 75% more fuel. However, the 75% increase in HP will occur only at WOT (wide open throttle) and the upper rpm range.The BOOST-A-PUMP® is the perfect solution and match as it increases the fuel supply ONLY at WOT. We supply a switch to activate the pump at "0" vacuum (naturally aspirated) or 3 psi (turbocharged or supercharged). At part throttle and cruise when the engine consumes relatively little fuel, the BOOST-A-PUMP® is not activated. Therein is the basic problem with larger "full time" in line or in tank pumps. They are noisy and "active" at all engine speeds and loads pumping all that unused fuel back to the tank - and heating it in the process. Any flow of liquid through piping creates friction (heat). The higher the flow, the greater the friction (heat build up). Remember that gas begins to boil at 95 degrees causing reduced fuel octane and pump efficiency. Race gas boils at 87°. What does that tell you? That's why professional drag racers all use cool cans to cool and stabilize their fuel supply.
This is an example of where larger and more i. Bigger in tank pumps aren't better. KENNE BELL KB89069 Kit includes dial!! Kenne Bell has long been recognized as a leader in fuel system engineering and technology.The following should help you understand some fuel system basics. For our data and information, we rely on our highly sophisticated FFB (fuel flow bench) to test not only pumps, but fuel lines, fittings, filters, fuel rails, injector and complete vehicle fuel systems. It has been used exclusively on Kenne Bell Supercharger Kits, including the dual pump ultra powerful Shelby GT500/Super Snake 800HPkits, Dodge Hemi (up to 900HP), 2010 up Camaros up to 900HP, one of the Fastest Production Sport Cars in the World (the 806HP/242MPH Koeniggsegg CCR), the Lingenfelter 950HP Corvettes and the 1000+HP 2013 Shelby GT500. All pumps are tested on the Kenne Bell in house computerized FFB. Note: When viewing our pump flow data, its important to keep the following hydraulic basics in mind. Tests were run at 60 psi.
Pump flow increases as pressure decreases and decreases as pump pressure increases. Example: As compared to 60 psi, flow will be approx. 15% higher at 40 psi and 15% lower at 80 psi.Remember, larger lower pressure injectors may supply more fuel than the smaller higher pressure injectors IF there is sufficient pump capacity. The fuel pressure MUST be increased to compensate for higher boost. 10 psi higher boost and fuel pressure LOWERS pump flow 7%. Example: Our Shelby GT500 makes 801HP at 23 psi boost and 83 psi rail pressure to net 60 psi Delta or injector pressure. And its exactly why boosted vehicles need HIGHER FLOW RATINGS than naturally aspirated engine pumps and why its difficult to rate pumps. Lower pressure/higher flow injectors are also a good solution. Be sure your tuner understands this.
We refer to it as Delta pressure. Air fuel ratio also affects pump flow. Example: Richening AF ratio 10% from 12.5 to 11.5 increases pump flow 10%. A10 psi reduction in fuel pressure affects AF ratio 8%. AF ratio similarly affects pump duty cycle in non return systems.
Fuel supply lines and fuel rails are often upgraded unnecessarily without sound fuel flow analysis. At Kenne Bell, we flow test fuel pumps, fuel lines AND rails on our FFB and the vehicle on the dyno. Theyre adjacent to each other. Example: Theres only a 7 psi pressure drop from tank to rails at 700RWHP with an 03 Cobra. Who else has performed this test?
The 7 psi isnt an issue if 1. The pressure is adequate or 2.
The pressure is not dropping off. The item "KENNE BELL 40AMP BAP KB89069 WITH VOLT DIAL BACK BOX CTS-V/ZL1 CAMARO SHIPS FREE" is in sale since Tuesday, August 9, 2016.
