    Hello, for those on race gas and pump, efi which would you rather run two pumps controlled separately second to come on at a set psi, or a single that will handle it All? For the two inline looking at AEM 400lph pumps or just go with a magna Fuel 625 or 525 series, looking for around 1000hp on pump and 1600hp on c12, the magna is only $100 more but less plumbing for sure. Thoughts???

      If you can get away with a single, go that route.

        That's what I'm leaning towards, I emailed magna to see which one would be better, will keep the double filter and dual pick up to a y to the pump, just need to upgrade the 8an o ring to a 10an to match the rest of the fuel system.

          Are you running 2 separate tanks, or mixing the two in one tank? Take a look at Fuel Labs pumps and talk to one of their tech's. They know more about proper plumbing and what works than most of us.

          I run one of their smaller low pressure pumps for my six-pack carbs. It runs on low speed to feed the center one and kicks up to high speed when the outboards open. A simple NoS switch grounds when they crack open and shifts the pump into high speed.

          Since you have EFI, depending on the ECM, you can use pulse width modulation to control the pumps. If it were me, I would check with the guy at Vaporworx too.

            Current set up is on tank each pick up to a pump on the fuel cell, then Y together and the ecu I have can run each pump and set to come on either a certain psi or rpm, the first pump will just run full time, just switch on the other once I get into boost. I will check out both of those fuel lab and vapor worx, thanks for those.

            magnafuel 4303 will handle all your needs but I believe you have to run fuel pump controller.

            Actually those pumps are rated at na hp, so I would have to run two of their pumps as well and the prostar series is not for continuous use 30-45 mins only. Looks like AEM wins this one with just two, and much smaller a price.

              I contacted fuel lab too and they had one but I can get 4 AEM pumps for what one of those cost, plus they weren't all that helpful, they did give me one product but I asked if they listed their number for boost or na and they just said it's in the technical and I looked at it and it said nothing, not all that helpful if you ask me. As soon as I can I'll order up the AEM pumps and get those mounted where I had the Bosch ones.

              Got the AEM's in today. Rated at 860hp at 30psi each, na can support 1200 on one pump. Even double checked with AEM and I'll be good to go.
