Aeromotive + m62
Wednesday, December 26, 2012 10:23 AM
Is anyone with an m62 running THIS aeromotive pump? All my research says its direct bolt on/replacement for the ecos (hopefully not direct replacement like the w-body pump was...). Anyway given its much larger size than the stock piece, did anyone have trouble with it interfering with the m62's bypass valve? It looks like it could be a problem. Just wondering if anyone has already tried it before I buy it.

Yeah I'm just saying many said the w-body pump was a direct fit but I found out it is NOT. So I'd have to have another one of those situations with this FPR.

it works good, its a pressure regulator though, not a pump.

yeap, they are made foer either side of the fuel rail on an lt1, if you do get the wrong side you just need a spacer for the bolt.

heres mine with supercharger


and without


and btw i have the wrong side, as listed above, i just added a spacer and it fits fine, no clearence issues at all.

Thanks for the pictures man. Looks like I'll be purchasing one of these soon. So the one you have pictured is the 13106 rather than the 13107 right?

snowman just wanted to show off his engine pic...rightfully so


on another note...if you have a good tuner or can get reliable tunes, whats the point of a FPR besides looking sweet? If you adjust fuel for a specific task, isnt it just adding or removing fuel across the RPM range which means you're screwing up other areas of your fuel trim? (like if you have a stable idle and low cruise but adjust for more fuel at higher RPM/WOT, you'll mess up your idle/cruise fuel settings).

I was planning on going with 60# injectors but now I'm definitely going to use 42s instead. I'm worried that with a 3.1 I may still be out of fuel by 7k rpm. I know everyone will say that I'll have plenty of fuel but remember that I'm way lean at 6500 with stock pulley and 36# injectors (PCM calling for 129% duty cycle). I have a racetronix pump, so I assume there's plenty to gain from upping the factory pressure. I drive 7 hours to get tuned so I don't want to show up and still not have enough fuel, forcing me to eventually go back again when it's resolved.

If you have a racetronix pump, then you should have plenty of fuel with 42's on a 3.1 pulley on a stock fpr. Im on a 3.1, racetronix, and 60s with enough headroom that i wouldve downgraded to 42 or 47s if it wasn't for anticipating a TVS in my future.

Mmm tvs. Thanks for the input evil. You've also done tuning with Oldskool correct? That makes your experience all the more valuable since he'll be doing mine as well.

Yup, oldskool is the only person i trust to tune me.
He tuned my original m62 setup, and is currently working out the bugs with my lsj swap. Pretty sure he has tuning for a blower down to a science by now with as many as he has under his belt

Agreed. Just the gains on my stock s/c setup was phenomenal compared to the reflash.

oldskool only tunes in HPT right?
Im really hoping my soon to be HPTuned M62 setup will put me into low-mid 13's before I even put in my other parts. I have faith in my setup...but tunage is everything!

yellow are you getting it dynoed? Im curious to see what you put down.

I run the GM reflash with said AFPR and have my car running good. I run 11.5-11.7 at WOT in any gear, and only see more fuel if i just blip the throttle. This is with the kit "stock" except i have a 3.1 pulley on there. oh yeah and also a ported blower. my best time so far (before the ported blower) was a 13.9. I have my fuel pressure raised about 10 PSI over stock

As far as I know he only does hpt but he tunes some 'balts and his lnf solstice as well. With the way I'm set up now (stock pulley), I'm confident I could get high 13s. The tuning helped exponentially. After the 3.1 this summer I'm going to look for a good price on some dynojet runs; there are a few around here. I called one place and they want 150 bucks for 3 runs. It's almost worth it just to see where I am.

if you're patient, a lot of performance shops will have dyno days. Usually like $50 for 3 runs and another $10 or so for the a/f read outs. Just join them on FaceBook or something so you know when they have their events.
