Thought I ruined my new AEM 320lph fuel pump yesterday. I cranked the fuel pressure so we could get more out of the 650cc injectors I have but it must have been too much for the pump because it appeared to enter some sort of thermal protection mode as the pressure dropped off to around 48 psi and wouldn't increase with boost as it should with BRFPR. But I fired it up this morning and it appeared to be working fine so I turned the fuel pressure back down and am shopping for larger injectors. I can't decide if I should go 1000cc which would be more than sufficient for pump gas, or go ahead and get 1200cc so if I get a wild hair and want to play with E-85 it is ready for it.

You already put a ton of time, effort, and money into the car, go for the gold and install the 1200cc

That's the thing is they are the same price as well. Only thing I may really be sacrificing is ability to lean out idle sufficiently with the 1200cc. Seems like the move to make though like you said.

Run another set of 650cc for WOT and idle control, you have a standalone I'm assuming it can run 8 injectors without issue in a staged injector setup. That is also assuming you have the physical space to add them (pesky blowers) or spray more meth for the needed fuel and fail an sensor in the standalone to default to a lower boost when the meth is gone

I had the AEM 320lph E85 pump installed and had all sorts of issues with the car stalling after driving for ~30 minutes and not wanting to restart. It would be fine after letting the car sit overnight. I read somewhere that the pump overheats because it is not designed to run constantly but rather built for drag racing. Not sure if there is any truth in that. I had my stock pump put back in and haven't have those issues since. I also have ZZP's fuel pump rewire kit. FWIW...

That was by far the strangest issue, glad the stock pump is enough

Damn. What pressure were you running at? I always seem to find this stuff out after I've already installed them. I ran my own 12 gauge wiring and relay right off the battery. I assume the rewire kits do something similar?

Are you doing a wet shot with the Nitrous now or what are you doing to get more fueling?

Yeah no room. I also want to rely on the meth as little as possible. I have the AEM failsafe gauge which can trigger my bypass valve but any time I am doing serious driving I have it overridden because the damn flow meter readings spike when it first kick on and can be kind of finicky depending on how fast or slow I come on to boost. Maybe I should mess around with trying to get the threshold dialed in a little better. I also have it's flow analog output wired to my AEM but I haven't figured out how I can actually utilize that yet. What I will probably set up is a protect mode in the infinity for if it leans out past a certain point as that should be fairly robust.
