Good choice. We used that ratio in the SST.

I'm stateside right now, just in Mississippi on a rig, shipyard type stuff...

I leave the 18th to come back to work next hitch

So, hurricane Issac got me sent home early... On the clock though, so no complaints...

Brandi is in the hospital, and we are starting the exploratory surgery to discover the problem... It seems I might be a victim of Aeromotive... And their fuel pumps...

My last day prior to leaving for work, I went for a short ride and stopped in at a place for a grand total of 40 or so seconds, walked back out and the car had died... Tried to start it, fuel pump is running but no... ZERO fuel pressure... And this is with a grand total of less then seven hours run time...

We are going to drop the rear cradle, pull the fuel tank and see what we see... When this occurred three weeks ago, Corey came to where Brandi quit, and then went to my house to help install the winch, and we used that to load her and get her to the shop...

While the tank and rear section are out, we are going to do a battery relocation and then cut out the wheel well and cover that with sheet metal... The nitrous bottles will sit on top and the parachute frame will be built and installed under there... Well install the parachute frame and bracing, and install an external battery shut off switch.

This is in preparation for my upcoming mile runs...

We also received a box of .120 wall thickness tubing bends and some straight pieces, so the handmade exhaust manifolds will be built over the next few weeks... Then we'll hook up the boost controller and see what we see...

Ought to be amazing...

I'll share this and take it for what it is worth but when we were searching for a fuel solution for my car, I suggested Aeromotive to Ron.....he thought about it for about .000003 seconds and said NO WAY an Aeromotive pump is going in this car. They have had horrible experience with them in the past and one twin turbo corvette owner ended up on the side of the road THREE times.

I hope that isn't in the cards for many of the other Aeromotive users on here as I know that pump has become quite popular. Good luck getting it back on the road.

Thanks bro, Corey has a plan, and it doesn't include any other Aeromotive pump... Like was mentioned... The pump is running, but we think the impeller isn't... We'll see what Aeromotive has to say and go on... And Corey is in agreement with Ron... We were hoping their new pump for the Camaro was an improvement... Guess not...

I can say that I am running 2 magnafuel pumps which is overkill but is also a great backup in case 1 pump ever fails. They are extremely quiet compared to aeromotives as well. I have tried several setups with dual and triple pumps and these magnafuels are the way to go. Hope you figure it out and it didnt hurt anything too bad.
