Never in the history of hot rodding has more horsepower and more technology been available to regular guys. This is a great thing but it can also be confusing and tough to figure out what components you need to keep your car happy as well as keeping it making all that horsepower you love to have at the end of your toe. Nowhere is this more important than in your fuel system. The guys at Aeromotive have gone the extra mile and have a great tech section with tons of great tech bulletins and stories that help you, the hot rodder at home, figure out what you need to make your stuff run right.
The story linked below concentrates on the use of vacuum or boost referenced fuel pressure regulators on naturally aspirated alcohol engines and boosted carb’d combos. Whether you are running turbos, a centrifugal blower, or a pair of leaf blowers to make your boost, you need to equip your fuel system and carb appropriately. All that air being jammed down your carb’s throat can impede the flow of fuel into the engine and utilizing the proper fuel pressure regulator can help to alleviate that problem while maintaing the performance levels you are looking for…IF IT IS INSTALLED RIGHT. That last part is the kicker.
This technical bulletin talks about how the components work, why they work, and how they need to be installed to benefit you and your car. This is good stuff!
