EXTREME SERIES HIGH VOLUME MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP FOR PONTIAC V-8 ENGINES. 301,326,350,389,400,421,428,455
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 Pontiac V-8 engines from 301-455 requiring a mechanical fuel pump.
This fuel pump has the threaded return line on the backside, (not shown in picture). A total of three outlets, just as most factory pumps require.
This fuel pump has 1/4" NTP inlets and outlet.
THIS FUEL PUMP HAS A RETAIL VALUE OF $69.95
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 200-450 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 engines produced around 180-210 hp. The oem style fuel pumps were designed to accommodate 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 accessories.
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. 1012-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 is for sure a much better quality than most others.
ALSO SUITABLE FOR EVERY DAY STREET DRIVING
THE THREAD SIZE IS 1/4" NTP.
CHROME PLATED FINISH
