Squash is the way I'm going. Last thing I want is something going wrong at wot. Just need to watch the air/fuel gauge more closely now

isnt that a dual pump set-up? That is also asking for trouble, one pump fails and kaboom goes the motor.

I think most people are having problems due to poorly designed kits/wiring and not having the pump speed controller which is a must with an A1000 or bigger on the street.

To the OP, how much power are you making? The A1000 is rated at 1000bhp with FI on a fuel injected motor per aeromotive's website, that should be around 850rwhp. You could try to set your base fuel pressure at 50psi and do the pull one more time, the pump probably cant flow that much fuel at that high of a pressure.

Good thing about his kit is you can choose the pump you want. 1 big pump, 2 big pumps, 2 small pumps, whatever combo you like. Just call him. You run one pump all the time till a certain boost level, with his integrated hardware, fuel pressure regulator. And misc. parts. Over the last few years, he has perfected his setup.

Huge success in the g8 world.

I have EVERYTHING that is required (And then some in my opinion), including 10 gauge wiring, direct relay to battery, A1000 regulator, etc.

I have been running ADM's twin pump setup for almost 3 years and 45k miles with no issues. I'm pushing just over 700 rwhp.
I've heard of a lot of issues with the Aeromotive pumps lately. I have built or been involved with a lot of Camaro high horsepower builds and I either use the ADM twin or the ZL1 with ADM's fuel pump controler, depending on the horsepower level.
Check with ADM, Andy's fuel systems just work, You never hear of an unhappy customer with ADM products or builds.

I agree with the above post. I have the ADM twin fuel pump set-up and its been fantastic. Two thumbs up to all the ADM crew for making a depending set-up.

Unfortunately I have spoken to ADM and LPE about using their respective systems on my car, I'll just be out of the power range that would hold. Damn!

I hear ya! I have the LPE twin pump now. My car is down getting the new motor installed as well as the full return style Aeromotive fuel system with Stealth eliminator pump, speed controller etc, etc. I am pinging about this system going in correctly. Aeromotive assures me it will work fine! Guess we will see!

Our setup flows twice as much as those, and the A1000 setup.... All is not lost!

thread update reply...

I stumbled on this thread and couldn't help but keep reading, as I have the internal A1000 as well. In fact, I'm on my 3rd one.

1st pump: siphon tube failure (same as shown in pics posted here)

2nd pump: failed to pump consistantly in hot weather. Apparently the return fuel was vapor locking (getting HOT!)

3rd pump: So far so good. Now I have a FPCM hooked up to reduce pump noise and prolong the life.

My 2 cents on these: The A1000 pump is a powerhouse unit that will support the 1000hp motor no problem. BUT... you have to have it plumbed and wired perfectly for it to not cause issues. With my dilemmas on these pumps, Jared at Aeromotive has very supportive in trying to make things right and get me going on the reliabililty track. He also recommends an inline fuel cooler on the RETURN SIDE. I haven't done that yet. If I can't get the reliability from this 3rd pump and controller...I'm moving on to other options.

Time will tell.

I've had all of these problems as well. Aeromotive directions to wire the FPCM were wrong and when my mechanic contacted them to find the correct way, it took several days and being told several different wrong ways to wire it before the correct information was given. Then we were given the run around on which MSD tach adapter that was needed to find a signal for the FPCM. MSD would say to contact Aeromotive and vice versa.

Currently everything is working fine with the addition of the FPCM and MSD tach box. I was not advised on installing a cooler on the returne side but will do so. The fuel pump appears to be nicely made, but the trouble and all of the additional parts needed to install makes it a head ache. If this new unit doesn't hold up, I'll move onto the Squash setup.

It also sucks when you have to pay labor to remove and install a new pump because it was damaged from the manufacturer.

I requested this be done and it wasn't. I was also waiting on an access door cover that Squash mentioned making on the G8 forums.

Could you guys that battled thru this advise on the "correct wiring" per Aeromoitive that worked out for you. We are in an install now and would like to avoid the trouble if we can - and it's occuring during the Holidays. It would be "very much" appreciated on the wiring routes / connections that covered you.

Much thanks! Plz....

I'll see if my mechanic is available over the holiday and ask him how he wired the A1000, fuel pump controller and MSD tach box, then post what I find out. I'll also take photos if possible.

All of this is needless to say - inspiring, encouraging, and ..... freakin scary!!! I am curious for more good news if any exists - or insight from Aeromotive.

I know they are using different pumps and technology but are the pump for the COPO so it begs curiosity why the trouble here.? ... ?

You have to wonder why so many people are having problems with Aeromotive. I was going to buy the complete fuel system from them but now I don't think I will. I called them to talk about creating a fuel system that would meet the requirements for an LS9. They suggested I transplant a complete ZR1 fuel system into my car. Are you kidding me!!! I won't be giving them any of my business now, or in the future...

Screwed the regulator all the way down just to see, now the pump even with regulator all the way in makes maybe 40psi tops at idle. I have mine completely isolated with a single relay, running 10ga wire. I've installed probably 200+ of their series pumps in numerous applications (All externals).

Maybe I have a problem with the internal line, right now do not know what went wrong, frankly don't care I'll never use another Aeromotive series internal pump again.

Made 737rwhp through the unlocked 4l60E at 16psi @ 6100rpms.. Would have cracked 800+ on the low boost if I could have made a pass to 72.
Matt -

Thanks for the post here .... and you know I am in the midst of a pretty large build as well. We are just working thru the tune and shortly to WOT Dyno runs. You, like many here, know their $hit so don't believe this to be a farce - and plan to ping Aeromotive tomorrow ..... But you know the players - industry - people..... What did they tell you and what route are you taking?

I am praying there was a bad batch of these but boy we have a small group with a common theme going here and if I had to time my purchase - it was likely at the same time yours was.

Appreciate the insight and some enlightenment would be nice from the manufacturer...... Again - they make a good product as we know and if this is a flop - shocked they are not addressing or jumping in here.

Like your install - we'd double covered all bases and don't even have an issue "yet" but much like a NW102 throttle body thread I am watching - I like to know where the storm may be before it hits.

Anyone with enlightenment - jump in - share and also add ...

Thx
