I'm looking to upgrade the pump in my bracket car. It's a rear mounted pump and tank, with a regulator near the carb.

Right now it's a Quick Fuel 125 GPH pump that works fine, but is marginal at my 600+HP and I am considering adding nitrous, plus I also have a more powerful engine (700+HP) I will be using. Total highest HP with the "good" engine and nitrous could be as much as 950+. So I need enough GPH to cover that.

Looking at some of the Magnafuel options, but I am open to anything.

I wouldn't put MagnaFuel on my lawn mower. Aeromotive are much better, more refined, and less expensive. Plus they will answer questions without telling you that you have to buy their stuff. I ran an A2000 on my older dragster with zero issues. My engine guy back in Colorado ran Magnafuel since they were local, and after five pump failures in three seasons, he switched to Aeromotive. Ran the same pump ever since. I think the A2000 would be a good pump for your deal, the A3000 is a bit much, but I actually run it as my nitrous fuel pump since I'd switched to it after having issues with my Magnafuel pump on my current car (came with the car). Yeah, way overkill for what it's getting used for now, but I had it already, no sense in replacing it when it does the job perfectly.....

That's the kind of info I was looking for!
Thanks and I'll stay away from Magnafuel. I've seen where people have had issues with the Holley stuff too.

I wish someone had told me Magnafuel was junk since I’ve been running one a full year now and it’s worked perfectly. Now I have to take it off. LOL Just kidding guys.

I am using their 500 pump and as I said no problems. I paid $350 for it from Summit. The A3000 is $479 and the A2000 is $563 so Aeromotive is higher. I’m not suggesting to buy on price just pointing it out. The Magnafuel was just a bolt in to replace my old Aerospace 400 is the main reason I went that route.

Everything I know about Aeromotive from users who are friends is that they are a fantastic company and product.

Just my experience.

Aeromotive pumps are excellent...

I used 2 Aeromotive A-2000's on 2 cars and they worked flawless.

I also used their bypass regulator and fuel log on one

They ran on gas or alcohol without any issues

Never leaked, never had to replace anything

Since we changed over to EFI, I started with a Holley drop-in fuel pump(s) system for fuel cells. The system was OK, but had some issues with it & I didn't care for the plastic fuel cell to start with.

This was the latest upgrade we made with our fuel system & what I should have started with. The only thing I don't like is the noise, but you can't here the pump when the car is running.

You didn't state if you have the factory tank or cell. Regardless, consider the in-tank fuel pumps.

You do realize high pressure EFI pumps can be used with carbureted systems & nitrous. Aeromotive even has a fuel schematic for a carburetor system in the link I provided, along with the HP ratings. Wink

This is true and you can't have any kind of restrictive filter on the inlet side of the pump

100 microns I believe was the smallest filter rating

I learned that on my first car.....

The pump will not get a sufficient supply of fuel and will cavitate bad !

Not necessarily on topic, but I've been using a simple holly Blue pump I bought off amazon about 8 years ago. It's been perfectly reliable in that time, and I race quite a bit. Lately I've tried to pick up the pace and spray a bit as well. I'm trying to go 5.8s in a 2700lb car. I have done so, but I'm worried I don't have enough pump. I currently run each bowl off each side of the regulator and bug off one of those lines for a nitrous fuel line, spraying 150hp. No idea what it makes total, but enough to go high 5s in the 1/8th.

Love my Weldon stuff. Price usually scares most folks away but its the best stuff out there IMO. Good enough for the FAA and NASA good enough for me.
