I understand your build plan but why hamstring yourself? I have not run the numbers, but I bet a single 044 pushing through -8 line will safely support your power goals. If you are going to spend the money for 2 pumps why not maximize their efficiency and run 2 good sized supply lines?

Why not two bigass hoses? Because I don't need 1400hp of fuel and I have the -6 in my garage right now.

Min doesn't ever make sense, don't take it personally. His logic is really messed up, and he should sell me that 044 pump he has, no need for two.

I will be revamping my fuel system soon, currently trying to decide between a second 044 or a single magna fuel pump rated for 1000 horse. I like having head room with fuel delivery, especially running e85

If I had known about the magnafuel I would have bought it. Would have been much simpler.

The guys at the local speed and performance shop here in Denver were a great resource during my build. When I did all my AN stuff, I would just tell them what I wanted to do, then they would give me there input, then I would make a decision on the fittings needed.

Same deal with fuel pumps, I told them that I wanted to have a high boost setting but was concerned that my pump was going to be maxed. I really don't have the room for a second 044 under the car, that is when they suggested a MagnaFuel pump.

I have grown tired of all the meth talk, injection, bigger turbo, different manifold ect ect ect. Flog this bitch, show me a smokey burnout, give me a 60-130 pull, anything but pictures of lights and dials.
Strapped a camera to Faes car but all we got was first gear up to 40mph

Also, I fixed my understeer with harder rear springs. Trimming front sway bushings helped A LOT (it was binding before... common issue with Racing Beat sways, apparently). But ultimately it was the springs.

Take that thing to the track, you are wasting your time at auto-x. you said it yourself, 10 minutes of driving. even busy days at the track should net you 1 30 minute session every hour. What do you currently have for roll bar?

lol, all he needs is to do MOAR EVENTS and maybe, maybe change the suspension a bit to fix the whatever understeer he was having.

Also, I'm fairly slow. Couple of months ago my friend did a 2 second faster run IN MY OWN CAR. I got better since but still
