I would not use a boost-a- pump, as I have seen them fail and not boost the fuel pressure like they should. Also they are hard on fuel pumps, running them over voltage to get the boost in fuel pressure.
I would rather have a proper designed fuel system for what I am doing, rather then have a band aid/patch together fuel system that can fail just when you need it most.
Do it right, or do it again after major failure of engine systems. You already have a new engine, so why take a chance on taking it out with a sub-par fuel system.
There is not a thread on the failure of the boost-a-pump on the SSR site. I am talking from personal experience with them on several friends cars. There were several threads about them on LS1GTO about the failures people were having with them and how to fix it so the vehicle would run after the boost-a-pump fails.
The boost-a-pump is a band aid fix instead of a proper built fuel system. I would rather have a fuel pump that doesn't have to be over driven and will pump all the fuel the engine would ever need, as to a band aid setup.
The boost-a-pump increases the voltage to the fuel pump to get it to pump more fuel and pressure. They normally go to 18 volts.
Like I have said before it is a band aid when compaired to a proper designed fuel system with a high performance fuel pump that will supply all the fuel the engine will need.
I asked you before if you could document situations where this specific system failed, and you couldn't.
Maybe someone somewhere had a failure with a Magnavolt, but you need to be able to document failures using the boost-a-pump system, and you can't. So far it's all innuendo.
At this stage, without being able to document failures with this specific system, you are treading on the reputations of some great people who have worked really hard to develop a good reputation for their product.
You are also doing a disservice to anyone who is seriously looking at purchasing a Magnuson supercharger.
Please provide documentation and costs of what you perceive to be a proper fuel system. Are you running a supercharged engine?
If you can't supply that, you are just a blowhard with fake news, and need to fade into the sunset. (Moderarted)
On another note, just to make sure my fuel system is operating properly, I purchased a fuel pressure gauge which records peak or warn pressure levels so I can monitor the system from inside the truck.
This is the Autometer gauge from Summit.
This is the fitting for the fuel rail at the rear crossover to accept the 1/8 NPT sender. It's a swivel fitting so should allow for proper positioning of the sender.
