No swirl Pot. No baffles. 13.1. No fuel starvation....yet
That's a good way of increasing it, never thought of that. I just fitted a different insert into the nut that fitted on the bottom of the tank then used 90 degree adaptor to change the orientation but this might be better.
I would insulate the pump but I think cooling might be an issue if I wrapped it or put it in a box. It's not too bad under load, but on idle it just a continuous sound, as if someone was rolling their "R's" non-stop
and sounds a bit, pathetic. Unfortunately I have neither a spare tank, nor the subaru in tank pump to modify. I wonder if I can get a bigger swirl pot (currently 1ltr) and modify that to fit an aftermarket in tank pump, then use the Bosch style one to feed the swirl pot? (I know you can buy them but the one's I've seen are competition ones and large/expensive!)
Also what FPR are you guys running, I'm just using the standard one on the engine.
