I think this forum has him and his links banned. Send me a pm with your email. I'll send you his link

I exist. The link thing is getting worked out.

To my knowledge, EFI Live hasn't been able to edit FPCMs at all. HPT can. I've played with it quite a bit and supplied a lot of the bin files to allow the editing.

You still have to deal with the internal 58psi regulator.

Oh! He's here. My bad. For some reason the forum wouldn't accept the link. I assumed the worst
Rocketman emailed you

Hello. I've stopped graphing FRP from logs, this is first on my phone showing pressure above 58. I tried different pressure high / normal / low flow, here is 60 at cruise stepping to 62

Pump Duty Cycle and Voltage

Here is a proud moment I smoked a Mazda crossover , FRP top left.

DSX: I suspected this was possible. Have you only been able to do this since the 3.5 beta? If so, can you provide any insight into how a typical user might access the parameters needed to gain extra fuel capacity, whether it be by voltage control or setting pressure or whatever the case may be? My own theory was to increase alternator voltage to the FPCM to simulate a BAP but perhaps there is a more direct method you could elaborate on?

It's pretty limited. I'm not going to dive too much into what I do because I still tune as part of making my living.

I am able to supply FPCMs pre-flashed ready to roll. I have a plethora of equipment and a bunch of time invested in this crap. Lol.

I couldn't find it on your website. How much would it be for a reprogrammed SS FPCM and what gains would it have?

I usually do the reprogrammed FPCMs for $150. As far as gains, I can't say for sure. You'll always be limited by the physical pump capacity.

Well that presents a viable alternative at least. Thanks for the info. Would you say that the stock electrical system in combination with your reprogramming would support the 650 BHP level? I've heard the voltage limit without tuning is 14.5 so if it could be increased to 16 for example, that would add about 10%. Wouldn't want to go much further since this might damage parts of the electrical system.

Honestly, I'd start looking into physically having more pump. Factory pumps don't enjoy higher voltage (you can end up breaking down the windings a lot faster), and even with more voltage, ending up at full duty cycle creates overall more power consumption which the pump wasn't necessarily designed for. I've just never been a fan of that route. I'd say do a ZL1 pump and just edit the FPCM, or retrofit my auxiliary pump system (and again, edit the FPCM to take advantage of the vastly larger fuel supply).
