EXTREME SERIES HIGH VOLUME MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP FOR BBC BIG BLOCK CHEVY ENGINES. 396, 427, 454

 photo 5983_1_sbl.jpg  photo 58b2_1_sbl.jpg

This fuel pump is the ideal size for most street/strip applications. It is what we recommend with most of the engine buildups we sell.

Fits most all BBC 396-454 engines requiring a mechanical fuel pump.

This fuel pump has 1/4" NTP inlets and outlet.

  • High Output Fuel Flow
  • Shutoff Pressure Pre-set 8.0 PSI
  • Fuel Pressure Regulator is Not Required, but recommended.
  • Heavy Duty Construction For Continuous High RPM Operation
  • Fuel Body Casting Can Be Rotated to Accommodate Various Plumbing Situations
  • Inlet & Outlet Tapped For 1/4" NPT
  • THIS FUEL PUMP HAS A RETAIL VALUE OF $69.95

    This fuel pump has a lifetime warranty, and we will back it up 100% regardless of what type of use,or mileage. This pump is heavy duty rated for street, strip, or off road use.

    Extreme series fuel pump for most all big block Chevy engines. This pump has a 140 gallon volume at 6 psi. At wide open throttle this pump may run a max pressure of 8psi. This is the fuel pump you want for high hp street or strip applications from 225-475 hp. The fuel demands under wide open throttle on an engine are very high, especially those with large cfm carbs. Never would you want to run a stock fuel pump on an engine that has been built up to any degree. Remember, most stock Chevy BBC engines produced around 210-275 hp. The oem style fuel pumps were designed to accomodate a very low fuel demand.

    Fuel pressure should be regulated to between 5 and 6 psi for normal driving. Off-roading might require less pressure, while all out drag racing might require 6-8 psi. Too much fuel pressure can cause the carb to run rich at low speeds, while too little fuel pressure might cause the carb to run lean during high engine speeds and loads. It is our recommendation that you run a fuel pressure regulator and gauge to set the pressure where it needs to be. The regulator will keep the pressure much more consistent, and eliminate problems caused by to much or to little pressure.

    You will hardly ever see a well built street rod not running a pressure regulator. You don't need it with this pump, but it is recommended. See our other listings for many fuel pump related accesories.

    NO FITTINGS ARE INCLUDED WITH THIS PUMP. FEW IF ANY FUEL PUMP WILL INCLUDE FITTINGS, AS THERE ARE SO MANY VARIABLES WHEN INSTALLING.

    If your engine now has an oem stock fuel pump on it, and it is very close to the frame rail, be sure you have clearance before purchasing this pump. The Extreme series fuel pump is slightly larger than the oem stock pump. Most of the size increase is in the height and very little difference in diameter. We have seen some applications where the oem fuel pump is less than an inch from the frame rails. Most vehicles will have over an inch in all directions and this fuel pump is not a problem.

    The fuel pump gasket is included.

    PART NO. 1004-C

    THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DELIVER FUEL WHEN FUEL DEMANDS ARE HIGH. YOU NEVER WANT TO RUN A STANDARD VOLUME PUMP WHEN RUNNING A LARGE CARB OR WHEN FUEL DEMANDS ARE HIGH SUCH AS LONG UP HILL DRIVING UNDER A HEAVY LOAD. STARVING THE ENGINE FOR FUEL CAN RESULT IN A LEAN CONDITION, THAT IS VERY HARD ON THE ENGINE, NOT TO MENTION A LOSS OF POWER.

    The chrome plating on this fuel pump is certainly better than most others we have seen. Not perfect but much higher quality. Seems like most other chrome fuel pumps on the market tend to have a somewhat frosty chrome finish on them. Our chrome finish on our fuel pump is for sure a better quality.

    ALSO SUITABLE FOR EVERY DAY STREET DRIVING

    THE THREAD SIZE IS 1/4" NTP.

    CHROME PLATED FINISH

    Lifetime warranty, regardless of street or strip use. If it fails we will replace it.

    Very Important Note!

Many of the questions asked are if we have fuel pumps for applications other than the ones listed. We do not have any other fuel pumps available other than what our listings show. This is an approx. total of about 10 mechanical fuel pumps for various domestic engines. For technical info on this product, please refer to the online car forums and Youtube.
