EFI Conversions and Engine Swaps Just Got Easier: The Easiest Fuel System You’ll Ever Install. REALLY! LOOK AT IT!

EFI Conversions and Engine Swaps Just Got Easier: The Easiest Fuel System You’ll Ever Install. REALLY! LOOK AT IT!

Aeromotive Fuel Systems has just come out with what we believe is the most revolutionary fuel system ever. The Phantom Fuel System can be installed AT HOME, BY ANY CAR JUNKIE, in ANY fuel tank regardless of what it is made of or came in, and means you don’t have to buy a fuel cell or custom tank to have a superior in tank fuel system that will support 1000 horsepower. It’s going to change engine swaps, EFI conversions, and intake fuel systems forever, because it’s so simple, effective, CHEAP, and safe.

We announced the new Aeromotive Phantom Fuel System on our LIVE broadcast of the Throwdown in T-Town a couple weekends ago and are the first to bring this product to the public. It’s not even on Aeromotive’s website yet! With nothing more than a hole saw and hand tools, anyone can install a baffled in-tank Stealth pump into their existing fuel tank. You get an in-tank 340 Stealth Fuel Pump capable of handling serious power even at EFI pressures, a black anodized hanger assembly and an internal baffle to control fuel slosh and keep the fuel pump submerged. The best part, this entire system is modular. It can be cut to height to fit almost any tank including your stock tank, even tanks as shallow as 6” deep.

If your stock tank is junk and you are needing a new one, reproductions are available for between $100-200 which means that this Phantom setup and a new tank are a fraction of the cost of a new custom cell and pump assembly. Plus they don’t hang down and look like crap. No sumps, no weird shaped tanks, just a stock tank with aftermarket performance. They are adjustable to fit any depth tank, and you can do this on a Saturday morning and be driving that afternoon. The Aeromotive Phantom System will be a perfect compliment to an MSD Atomic EFI, LS Engine Swap, Or for anyone who wants the benefits of a return style fuel system on their hot rod. Carbureted or Injected, the only difference is the regulator you choose. Plus, since it’s in the tank, it’s quiet and clean!

If we sound excited about this it’s because we are. This is our vote for the coveted Best Engineered New Product Award at SEMA next week. The guys at Aeromotive don’t want us putting all of it out today, since SEMA is next week, but we’ll give you a sneak peek, with a bunch more photos and info coming next week from the show.


Below are 4 photos showing parts of the installation of the new Phantom setup. We can tell you that there isn’t much more to it than what you are seeing, and that this entire installation can be done in a couple hours including removal of the tank.

    The basket/baffle and foam are likely vacuum packed into a small package, which would be opened once inserted into the tank and the packing extracted.

    But after the Blitz gas can debacle, I wonder how many clueless mopes are going to burn themselves up hole-sawing a tank full of gas and then try to sue Aeromotive?

    And I can’t see how this is going to be all that cheap, either.

    Looks pretty interesting. I’m wondering if the funnel-like piece at the left in the top photo is used to compress the foam/baffle down to get it in the hole.

    Trick I learned from an old-timer’s for hole-sawing a fuel tank w/o having to buy a new one: of course, empty if of fuel and clean it out like you would anyway (have it boiled out). Re-attach the filler neck and hook it to the tailpipe of a car running in the shop. Let the exhaust fill the tank and continue to flow through the tank. Start drilling your hole. Not enough 02 in the exhaust stream to ignite the fuel vapors in the tank. Its like an EGR system.

    Haters will say it doesn’t work, but I am driving around in cars that have had electric fuel pumps installed into old, factory tanks using this method. Don’t sue Bang Shift.

    Very nice… I’ve already emailed Aeromotive’s reps for a price quote!

    I was thinking that you rolled the baffle assembly up like a newspaper, shoved it in, and let it expand. But MrYates has an interesting guess.

    I’m sort of wondering how the stud ring stays in place while you install it.

    My first reaction was to consider the potential for a Darwin award for trying to cut a hole in a used fuel tank.

    I knew someone that was cutting the deck out of a boat, and cut into the fuel tank. He spent three weeks in the burn unit before he died.

    My guess on a price range is around $350, which would be a bargain. I like the baffle assembly on this and IMO is much better than the Tanksinc set up I have now.

    I’ve been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or weblog posts in this kind of house . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site. Reading this information So i am satisfied to convey that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed.
