FEEL THE FLOW

HIGH-horsepower fuel-injected engines require a fuel pressure regulator that can provide adequate and consistent flow. Compatible with alcohol or petrol, Aeromotiveís A1000 Series EFI fuel pressure regulators deliver up to 100gph of fuel at pressures adjustable between 40 and 75psi. For predictable pressure control, the fuel pressure rises on a 1:1 ratio based on engine vacuum/boost. Three versions of the A1000 regulator are available, with Ė6, Ė8, or Ė10 AN inlets. All three models have a Ė6 AN return fitting, plus a 1/8in NPT fitting for adding an optional fuel pressure gauge. For more information visit www.summitracing.com.
