Andy does the fuel pump controller require tuning or is it plug and play like the pump?

I am going to be having my rear sub frame dropped to do a full bushing upgrade. Wondering if I should get this done at the same time to save from(possibly) ever having to drop the rear sub frame again. Seems like a cheap upgrade. Im eventually going to put a TVS2300 on the car.

Only makes sense now as it is only 1 more hour to do it

there are some small tweaks to the tune for the adm controller...I know this from a local car.

PQ, did you get the ZL1 pump insalled? Did it solve your pressure problems?

I just installed a ZL1 pump and i'm seeing pressure drop on WOT to 48lbs. Unfortunatley i did not log the stock bump and did not cut an access door. I disconnected the BAP and didn't see any change, so I'm guessing the BAP isn't currently working. However, i would expect the ZL1 pump to maintain pressure as I'm just over 600 hp.

I'm going to test my BAP tomorrow...someone gave me a tip to connect your air compressor to the vacume tube at 10psi to test it.

our dealer can't pull up any of these part#'s they say to use GM-13579899 so what is the correct part# for these fuel pumps ??

I think you also need a new fpcm with a tune tweak

I have zl1 pump and BAP with no issues and I am close 700rwhp on a mustang dyno.

After further review, I think i'm good. I did some hard pulls tonight and AFR looks great and all my other vitals are matching pre-ZL1 fuel pump. I'm going to assume it is normal for pressure to drop at WOT to around 48psi. The only thing that bugs me is the FP commanded DC...I'm locked in at 99.6%. I did notice the Whipple tune changed the DC to 99%...I backed that down to 90%, however logger is still showing 99.6%. Any ideas what's pushing it to 99.6? I disabled my BAP, so i'm running the straight ZL1 fuel pump.

Unless someone has a suggestion for me to check, I'm going to live with it... I'm starting my cam install next weekend!

Are we possitive about that? I'd like to just plug and play til I get my injectors.

As I said in PM, I did not get the pump yet.

But I just don't like the 48psi on the FP drop. I've been told that it's at the edge of dangerous.

What did your guys say?

So i'm now convinced I don't have a clue what I'm looking at/doing . I just put my Inj Delta on the same scale as my FP and what do you know...all of a sudden things are starting to click (maybe).

If i understand what I've been reading...Inj Delta + Boost = Desired FP.

When you are not in boost, there is a vacuum, so the Inj Delta is > 58 by the amount of vacuum. For example: Boost = -12, so Inj Delta = 70 (70 - 12 = 58). At this point, no boost, so FP holds steady at "Des FP = 58". Inj Delta reads 70 due to the vacuum, however the rail pressure remains 58 (as desired).

When you are in boost, it changes...now the rail is getting pressure from both the Manifold and the fuel pump. The goal to maintain 58psi in the rail...so the fuel pump has to reduce pressure to compensate for the boost . I see my Inj delta match up with FP at 0psi, when i go into boost the FP starts to reduce pressure to maintain 58psi in the rail. So when i get to 13psi of boost, the FP has to back down 13psi (result 45 psi).

This would explain why i see no difference w/my BAP on the ZL1 pump... because it doesn't need it. It is maintaining 58psi at the rail w/o the BAP. It would also explain why my AFR stays rich throughout my pull.

If my new theory is right, then PQ running 48psi @ 7.5psi is actually maintaining 55.5psi of pressure in the rail...

I think this makes sense, but it would be nice for someone w/a clue to confirm.

The only thing it doesn't explain is why the duty cycle on my pump stays at 99.6%...has to be something in the whipple tune i'm missing.

So basically the injectors get that boost pressure as a sort of back pressure?

Hmmmmm.......... interesting.

Yes, can someone confirm?

I do know that a liquid compresses differently than air. So I don't know if this is plausible..... ???


But it's definitely thread worthy if we can learn something.

Here is my reference material i referred too...Boost-a-pump theorly explained (unfortunately it is focused on Ford): http://www.kennebell.net/KBWebsite/C...heory_kens.pdf

It states Fuel Rail Presure - Manifold Pressure = Nozzle outlet pressure (or Delta Pressure).

So I can only assume the PID for FP SAE on the Camaro is missleading as I don't think it is an indication of pressure at the fuel rail.

My inj delta pressure is 45psi @ 13psi of boost, so my Fuel Rail Presure has to be 58psi. Right?

I may go buy an analog fuel rail pressure gauge just to confirm...not sure yet how i'll read it at 100mph

It's pretty simple really-

I use:

[PID.6512.PSI]-([PID.51.PSI]-[PID.11.PSI])

In other words:

Rail_Pressure = Delta_Pressure_Injector-(Atmospheric_Pressure - MAP_Pressure)

I won't get into the crappy choice of variable names, but essentially Rail_Pressure is that 58psi goal the fuel system aspires to keep by varying Delta_Pressure_Injector for the conditions of Atmospheric_Pressure and MAP_Pressure. This should be obvious when you consider a normally aspirated car at WOT: MAP values approach atmospheric and that term on the right gets very close to zero, and the data logs will show that Delta_Pressure_Injector get very close to 58 psi

HP Tuner variables can automatically switch to a desired units by specifying the units after the PID in programming struct fashion, ie - variable.<units>, which is important in this case because we always look at MAP and atmospheric pressure values in kPa, but for fuel, we look at lbf/in2.

I kinda get what your getting at but what's the down side to having the zl1 pump and the MSD bap? If your saying that the MSD is not kicking in , is it not adjustable to get it to come on sooner and get the FP back to 58 at the fuel rails ? Also as a back up to maybe if the FP was starting to fail wouldn't it be ok to have the MSD bap there as a back up ? I have both but not near the power level your at so it's not been an issue for me yet.
