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.

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

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?

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

Side question for Tom.

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