Fuel pump maxed out, need options besides the GT500 setup

I dyno'ed with 478 to the wheels...and my injectors and pump was maxed out. I am considering going E85...and need to find an alternative. I have a set of 80lb injectors that are E85 compatible. Just need a fuel pump that can support the extra needed fuel. I've used Walbro, and had great success with them in the past. Looking for feedback/pointers on an upgrade besides the GT500 system. Whatcha guys running? Pointers? Recommendations? BTW....I currently have the Procharger add-on pump installed. Anybody know the rating of that unit?


cheers

I've heard mixed reviews about the BAP. Was thinking about replacing the Procharger pump with a higher flowing unit. Looking for suggestions on that...worst case I'd probably go with the GT500 setup...but I'd hate to spend that much.

I have used a BAP for years with no issues. Whats your reason not to use the GT500 pumps? I made 600rwhp on E85 with the GT500 pumps before adding a BAP for higher power levels.

I have the gt500 pumps in a gt hat done by S&H that I have removed since I installed the complete GT Supercar pump kit. I was going to put this up for sale in a week or so here is a link to what I have minus the wiring which S&H sells for around $45 I think. PM me if you are interested in it.

Don't skimp on the fuel system now. You'll only end up replacing it down the road when you decide you still want more HP.

When it comes to fuel systems GT500 pumps are cheap! Be happy that's all you are looking at spending.

What about replacing the Procharger supplied pump with an Aeromotive, or Walbro pump? Like a 400lph pump, or?

Is your car but I would suggest you to take that POS piggyback procharger provided and do a proper fuel system. If you want a cheap option a 405 is an option but I would do the GT500 system, I have tuned E85 cars with stock longblocks and 80s and they have range and do well.

And the 405 as I meant it was to replace the stock one with.

Had gt500 dual pumps + 2 single BAPs. Then went Fore triple pumps and larger injectors, then went 5 gallon fuel cell with single large pump. Then sold car to speed shop.

A lot depends on how you intend on using vehicle now and in future. Also the car's use or abuse will determine the fuel system's reliability and survivability. GT500 system failed twice in my car. Once was electrical, other mechanical.

If all you want the car to do is survive a 600 rear wheel dyno pull and have a purdy dyno sheet then you go in one direction (the cheaper one) or do you want to subject the car to repeated violent launches and 9-10 second runs. Maybe similar horsepower but totally different setups including fuel.
