SlimShady Side question for Tom.

Did you figure out how to wire the fuel level sender on the ATL Well cell to the stock gauge?

1turbofocus With hi boost you need the return system to go up in fuel psi 1 to 1 the stock system does not have the ability to do this

Adjustable regulator is the only way to do this , a modified canister wouldnt work because you wouldnt want two bleeds letting off fuel

iminhell Then wouldn't it be better to say the canister is the issue (the bleed port) and not the fuel system?

Guess I don't see that it'd be that difficult to design a simple top hat with less volume bleed-off, or something like a progressive volume bleed-off.
I mean you're going to be modifying the top hat anyways right?

1turbofocus The problem isnt the tune and or how to use it , the problem is the return fuel system built into the canister

I can get the fuel psi to come up by 50% on a boosted car but thats all it can do because of the design of the canister

If you're going this far, I highly doubt you'd have a spare with. Racecar and all.

Having only played a little with it, I still feel the better was is to tune for a large volume pump correctly, with the pump tables. Understanding them can be difficult though.

1turbofocus Surge tank will work but where are you going to place it , by the time you do this you have spent what a well cell would cost

700whpfocus y not a surge tank set up ? go fuel return while keeping the ford pump in the tank ( ford gt) and having an external fuel pump like the aeromotive a1000

1turbofocus The tank is positioned where a sump would be to low and would make it unprotected

what about adding a sump and conections to make it a return set up?
topspeed......try that. it may just work!
