View Full Version : Aeromotive 340lph Stealth fuel pump

As some of you may know, Aeromotive and a couple other companies have been working on a new in tank fuel pump for us forced induction guys making over 400rwhp. The 255lph pump is taxed to it's limit (230lph) at the power levels some of us are making, so short of the whole fuel cell, external pump, etc, etc., the next best option is this new pump design from Aeromotive.

What is it? Well, it uses the same external housing as the traditional Walbro GS340, but replaces the traditional georotor pump design with a turbine which is much more efficient and more receptive to high voltage operating conditions. Think AR vs. M90 or even centrifugal vs. M90.

Anyway, so at the 60psi line pressure most big HP folks are running, this pump puts out 275lph and if you are so inclined you can increase voltage with a Boost-a-Pump and get up to 350lph @ 18V.

The beauty of this particular pump as opposed to some of the other high output turbine pumps is that it is a direct fitment for our cars. The stock fuel sock will fit right on and your connectors will plug right in.

These have been on backorder with almost all resellers for months but I'm happy to say that I have them in stock ready for immediate shipment. Cost is $175 + shipping. I can repackage them into a $5 mailing box so consider them $180 shipped in the lower 48.

Dave is this something that a guy who has around 300hp could use and just bypass the 255lph upgrade?

Dude, just like I said in Victor's thread, I'd rather pay a little more to support one of the club's vendors.

No need to come in here and crap on the thread.

I myself buy from SCCoA venders. I have spent more sometimes for a product from a local vender than going to E bay because I get much in information and help from those same venders. Do you buy from Victor just because he offers a cheaper price or because he has help you in other areas?? I dont think getting on a thread where a guy is selling a product and telling people to go somewhere else is cool in the least

Thanks for looking out, it's always good to have competition to keep prices fair.

People have all sorts of reasons for buying wherever they do and I can appreciate yours. I buy from SC vendors when I can and I don't think an honest business person should be denied the right to make a reasonable profit or margin on parts. I've bought plenty of parts from Victor over the years but I find dealing with him is complicated at times and I have taken a public beating from him numerous times on these boards in spite of my patronage. Most of the time I find that buying from Bill is more convenient and I never get publicly derided by him when we disagree on something. Professional courtesy is important, IMO.

That being said, I do take exception when people try to gouge an unsuspecting shopper by trying to get $400 for a used B&M Ripper shifter when you can buy them Brand New from SCP for $229. You'll notice I didn't post that in your thread though because I respect your right to ask whatever price you want and I respect people's right to pay whatever they are comfortable with.

It is difficult to maintain a semi-neutral stance on these boards when Supercoupes are my business as well as my passion. I had a Supercoupe (XR7 actually) long before most people around here did and I will still have one long after many have gone on to other things. I am an SC enthusiast first, a vendor/supplier second which is one reason why price is not always the bottom line factor with what I buy and what I sell.

So if anyone wants one of these pumps, I do have them in stock and ready to ship. I'm just happy that we have a good alternative to the GS340 that most people are/were using up to now. :)

i did that because i dont want to sell it and it was a joke at 400.. that is just one of those things u keep a hold of... i dont want to sell it ... the 400 asking price was a joke for the shifter.. have to keep thing fun .. people take things too personal in here they cant take a joke.

So the $40 stock supercharger pulley is a joke too? I guess it must be since you are claiming it is a 5% pulley for an 89-93. Or did I misunderstand that too? :rolleyes: I guess if you put it on a 94/5 supercharger it could be considered a 3% pulley, but to get 5% out of it would require a really trick belt setup.

The stock hood prop rods for $40 is another good joke considering they are about $20 ea. brand new with a lifetime warranty. Boy you were really hamming it up in that thread. :p

I do see the humor in it. Really I do! :D

My suggestion to you is that you go back to your own threads and post away. I don't mind the ebay link but the rest of your comments are not really appropriate here. I'd like to return this thread to its original topic if you don't mind, thanks.



With respect to the fuel pumps, I have them in stock for my own purposes and will continue to supply them to whoever needs or wants one, I just wanted to put it out there so people would know what I use, what I recommend, and what I have available. If anyone wants to buy on Ebay or elsewhere instead, by all means go ahead and do so. I'm not offended in the least.

Ironworker, When Dave mentioned those injector prices to David N. Victor didnt take it too well, clearly identified by your link. However, when you mentioned the other price of the 340 in this thread his response was:


Thanks for looking out, it's always good to have competition to keep prices fair.



Is that not clearly a post from straight forward guy trying to help out the community, its pretty obvious to me that it was. Buy a aero 340 on ebay or some other site and when you have a tiny issue or question on maybe the best way to drop a SC tank, or about your possibly rotted away fuel pump pigtail, call that ebay seller and ask for advice. Thats the difference when you buy from Dave.

I'll check my funds after paint, I should have one of these pumps.

That's what I thought you meant although your post wasn't too clear with the wording. But just to set the record straight, you might want to brush up on your math since the stock 94/5 pulley is 3.25" diameter and the 89-93 pulley is 3.15" making it 3% OD. (3.25/3.15=1.03). Truth in advertising FTW.

Thanks for playing. :)

...And can we please not bring Victor and/or the past into this anymore? There are some really ugly posts out there from where he took strips off me that still smart. It does no one any good to re-open old wounds. I've tried to make amends over the years and at the moment I think we are on a pretty even keel which is where I'd like to keep it. Let's just leave it at that, ok?

There are 3 factors in any sales commitment.

Quality, Service and Price

I've always told my clients they can have any 2 of the above.

I rate my relationship with DD as getting 2 3/4 of the 3.

Thats why I look to him first.

And I consider myself an educated buyer. (and Seller)

If I can behave so can everyone else. That being said pricing really isnt that far off when you consider shipping and If I didnt just get a new fuel pump I would have bought one of these for sure. Two of these bad boys in a tank...SWEET

...and read through the feedback on that Ebay link. 9 negative transactions within the last 6 months, and 3 neutral transactions for that buyer..

With David's $5 shipping option, that makes David's total price only $7 higher than the ebay link.

$7 is absolutely worth the assurance that you will get your product, and again, it is supporting a local SC guy.

bump for a good product from a good vender.

its not a bad price either, i think summit has it at 169, but you need to add in their handling fee, and i think thats up to 12 bucks or something. I always tried to get my stuff from my local speed/engine shop until i got a job there, now i get everything here. I priced these pumps and Dave's price is right on what we would charge.

It installs just like every other aftermarket upgrade fuel pump would.

So, it attaches the same way the Walbro does with hose clamps and a rubber hose? Also, I thought the Walbro requires splicing of the wiring harness.

Here is an archived copy of a walk through for installing an upgraded fuel pump in a MN12 car (SC, LX). http://www.tccoa.com/articles/mn12parts/fuel-pump/fpk-install/fuel-pump-kit-install.htm

You'll basically need to do similar with this pump, as this pump is sized similarly. It also comes (from XR7 Dave) with a short section of hose to replace the baffle shown in the walk through. If you are replacing your own fuel pump, there is some assumption you will be able to figure out what you need to do the job. The walk through above helps, though not everything in that walk through will come with the pump you order.

Here are pictures of what I received when I ordered the pump.

these things are so nice. We got them in at my job when they first released them.... such a good idea. Awsome alternative to the Bosch 044 inline or walbro 255lph inline. should be able to feed a #8 hose without a problem. Wish my pump would have died now instead of last year when i replaced it with walbro 255

i bought a set of Long tube headers from Ebay for my mustang gt because they were Cheaper than buying local or at the actual american muscle site and among others

to my surprise
the headers i recieved were not even a fit to my mustang gt the shape didnt even fit to screw them on
and then the curves on them were badly welded

i ended up wasting twice the money i would actually have wasted buying from local or the more expensive places

now i rather waste a little more but have more confidence in buying

i have not yet bought from anyone here in the forums and i can already tell which members seem like they have been here way way longer than others and who seem more honest

i am looking to buy some pullies and other goodies from here yet im a little scared i may never get the stuff or end up getting something else :/ hopefully that experience doesnt happen

because we all work hard for our money like to be wasting on bad deals.
