I was talking about stock fuel pressure regulation. i was always led to believe that beyond a point the stock fuel pressure regulators will fail because they are without the reservoir like some of the aftermarket ones and high pressure ones.
also more generally isn't 12 psi supposed to be a basic max floor level for stock fuelling? this car particular i'm interested coz its a mitsu and their cars are designed to be pushed.

True, beyond a certain boost point be it 12,13,14, etc psi point there will always be disparity. But the limitation of stock fuelling is gonna be different for every car depending upon the base pressure, fuel flow, injector times, turbo's cfm etc.

If we talk about the 3000GT in particular, they have been sucessfully taken upto 15psi with stock fuel pump, regulator and injectors (360cc x 6) with stock TD04 9B turbos (275cfm x 2) with no fuel related or power related issues. Any more boost and you will lose out on them. In comparison they come set at 9psi from factory.

Arush. As usual another Killer machine from your stable. But please please please, can i have a exhaust note of your baby as far as good comments are concerned. I would love to have a good quality exhaust note for my personal collection.

While it may make sense in theory, in practice, this is not an issue for most applications.

Also, specifically 12psi with this particular car's setup or generally speaking?

It's a false rumor that helps aftermarket companies sell parts. The fuel pressure regulator(and fuel lines) are about the last thing we ever touch on a car. In general, if the pump is a Walbro or something similar.. the lines and FPR stay stock. Only in big builds is the need for replacing those an issue(over 600whp or if using a larger pump like some specific Bosch's or Aeromotives).

I'd guess on your car your stock FPR is and will be just fine.. nothing for you to worry about. When you make good power, just make sure you have enough pump(Walbro will hold you until at least mid 500's to the wheel), and the right size injectors.. Then just tune it properly and you are set(assuming everything else in your setup is up to par).

I personally(along with friends and employees)have stock FPR's on our cars and I make 571whp and one of my employees makes 617whp.. Just a Walbro, injectors and a tune(for fuel mods). I'm currently swapping this fuel system out for use with E85.. Thus the need for replacing everything.

Very true, stock setup is more than enough on my car for upto 400 crank hp... with 450cc/550cc injectors, walbro and bigger turbos the car can hold upto 500 crank hp with ease on stock internals and boost under 18psi assuming everything else in healthy condition.

E85 is a good move HPP, A friend of mine in NC is closing in on 800awhp on his 3000GT with E85 which maxed out on 700awhp on pump gas.

Oh well, what harm can a little photoshoping do? *HUGE GRIN ON FACE*

I will give no prizes for guessing who did this.

May I take a wild guess ??? Is it a spectacled grey haired genius ?

I really wish there was a prize for guessing :-)

Must say the car looks menacing & mean in "a NYC back alley" LOL (never knew you had this "set" built in your workshop.)






Cheers
