That’s what I was curious about. That was the whole reason I went with the fuelab setup from irate. Everybody said that stock pump wouldn’t fuel my injectors. Maybe I’ll have to go back to stock setup and try it?

I was told that too. Since I have tried it and have been running it for over a year. I have no regrets. Plus the Bosch pump is reasonable and reliable.

I was also told I need 1/2" or 5/8" fuel lines. That is crazy over kill. I have custom 3/8" single wire hydraulic hoses fro my local hydraulic repair shop. They provide more than enough volume and will outlast my truck and me.

He's right, you don't really need 1/2" or bigger line seeing as the biggest effective feed lines to the cylinder heads is 1/4".

Oh boy. The great fuel pump debate arises! Again.... for like the millionth time. Lmao..

A oem 7.3 superduty fuel pump(Bosch) in good shape and proper filtration will feed up to a small hybrid with no issues. After that is when you need a upgraded pump or dual stockers. Dual stockers will feed just about any heui injector made.

Gotcha. So my question was who makes one that doesn’t sound like it’s trying to fuel a locomotive?

What size injector do you want to run?

My a1000 is loud but it also is 6 years old and been through north east winters and still runs great. But it prob overkill for anything smaller than 200 ccís.

I was told the fuel lab is not that loud.

So if your running small Injectors run a single stock. For bigger you can possibly keep your fuel lab and run a stock as your dual pump. Then you can flip on the fuel lab if your running a bigger tune.

You shouldn't have an issue with a oem bosch pump running that size
If you need more then run a dual oem bosch setup. That will be the most reliable and quiet choice. I believe a bosch 044 pump is better then a walbro which is a hair better then a stock bosch oem pump.. my 170/100s drop zero psi at full song with a single walbro.

Check out 444Fab fuel systems. https://444fab.com/ Nice work, customizable orders, reasonable price. It is where I'm going. Dual stockers, second stocker connected to a pressure switch, setting up some kind of system to "excercise" the spare. Since it will only come on under very high demand or failure of the primary.
