    I don't know what they include, etc, so can't really tell you whether it's worth it. But keep in mind there are a lot of mouths to feed there now between Vishnu and FFTEC so the pricing sort of makes sense.

    For those looking for a lower cost option, we have maybe 15 people now running the Walbro in tank pump I posted about, and in all cases it resolved the low fuel pressure drops. So consider that as a lower cost option. Install takes maybe 2hrs. Second time could be faster due to the learning curve on the fittings, etc, to get the OEM pump out. It's costs around $200.

    This solution is worse than the stand alone walbro since you are still flow limited by the OE pump. Not a very good solution. Time will show which works better.

    They'd like you to think it can fuel 700HP ST, but then you realize that's with 1.2L/min of meth.

    Ya it sure seems to me that the meth is necessary. Unless they can do it on E85 alone but this will pan out shortly.

    Interesting.. Seems they are using the same pump? My first question would be why bother with the $229 "sleeve adapter"? You can get a pump with barbed inlets and outlets as well.

    Putting the same pump in tank sure does require a lot fewer parts. Just the pump kit (which includes a filter and crimp fittings), a tee, 4 hose clamps, and 12 inches of 1/4" fuel injection line.

    Yeah doesn't make sense to have it inline when it can replace it completely. I know shiv had an explanation which I didn't read.

    First Shiv said the whole concept was flawed (lol). Then I think it was Mike @ FFTEC who said that one pump alone isn't enough to keep up with their fuel demand. Which is plausible. Although, at the E100 520rw levels the Walbro does just fine. My response was if this Walbro 400gph E85 pump isn't large enough you can always just use a larger one in tank. The same procedure for installing it can be used on almost any pump.

    Why can't you replace the pump and have one inline?

    You could, but in their setup they're keeping the oem pump in place which will probably still bottleneck the setup.

    OMG! WTF? The 400lph e85 Wally pump is only $199 shipped with install kit. Wow. Shiv said on shivpost a while back that it was going to be an inexpensive solution? I just don't get it.

    i read this also but didnt have much hope it would be reasonable. I can honestly say i have never owned a vishnu product not saying that i wouldnt, but what i wont do is pay their crazy prices.. i can see if they are the only ones on the market with a Tune or a qualify meth kit but lets get real guys its hard to justify over double the costs for the same or better products

    Yikes, that's a little expensive for what it is. However, the kit may work well, it seems a few people are running straight e85 with it. If someone wants to pay $600 for it that's their business but it could probably be DIY'd for 1/3 the price.

    Except for that somebody who's running straight E85 with ALL the Vishnu products (specifically the Fuel Pump Upgrade & Ethanol Sensor) $#@! itself recently

    It's not only overpriced, it's not a proven product yet. While the fuel pump upgrade is the key component, do we have enough injector to run ethanol concentration that high?
