    I only got to ride in a 2010 GTR I was thinking of buying in the $60k range. Yes, it was fast but not what I was looking for in a DD. I like my 3 way more on the inside (and at 6'3", GTR seats and roof were a major no-go) and I couldn't see spending $60-65k for a weekend toy. The 3 interior is way nicer for DD. Love the exterior of the GTR.

    If only we could get a DCT w/awd that wouldnt break and need serious upgrades in a 335xi, I'd have built upgraded turbos myself already.

    This is a long shot: Try contacting Katech to see what parts they are using on the Le Mans engines? (I'm talking about the C6 GT1 program)

    Also, I think it's important to point out the simplicity of most HPFP's compared to the BMW pump. I think the Mazda pump is a single piston push type. From what I understand of ours, it converts the rotory motion into push and uses 3 chambers. Furthermore, I believe this motion is hydraulic, not mechanical. I think a lot of companies could poop out a high flow Mazda HPFP, but ours is much more complex.

    EDIT: I'm not sure how ours compares to that of a diesel engine, but I'm thinking a company that works with those may be most likely to improve on our pump.

    Tony, are you running the twin pumps in the stg3 car right now?
    if so, any problems at low level fuel since the siphon is not hooked up?

    You can buy the Walbro 450LPH E85 pump (SKU: F90000267) or have a knowledgeable performance shop set up a custom in-line pump fueling system. Not 100% sure, but you might be able to hide it in that storage space in trunk where a spare would go.

    Stock pump is still hooked up to the siphon. I have not run the car low on gas and honestly if have a car capable of over 600HP if you get below 1/8 a tank making any full power runs is not a good idea in case of fuel starvation. Just keep fuel in the car and no issues. But I do not forsee any, the stock pump is still hooked up to the siphon. And to be honest, the pumps work even better than I had hoped. The two pumps overwhelm the stock regulator, BUT only as voltage increases with RPM. So you get the 72-73 psi most of the time, but as RPM comes up and voltage rises, it will push past the regulator go up to anywhere from 80-95 PSI at depending on RPM and volatge. Basically I am getting the benefits of a boost a pump or a boost referenced regulator. A pleasant surprise to say the least. It sets a LPFP code as the requested does not match actual, but it never sets a check engine light, its just a dormant code.

    Unless you are going to run a system like Shivs just run the extra pump in the tank. Its simple and completely out of the way. Not sure why you would want it in the trunk

    Are you saying your running the oem pump and a walbro 450 in the bucket? Or twin walbro 450's and have them hooked up to the siphon?

    I made an entire post documenting running both pumps in the bucket with pictures where the stock pump stays on the siphon and the walbro sits next to it. Its tight but they both fit, you run them parallel into the stock fuel line. I don't remember the title of the post. I think its in terrys fuel pump thread

    Holy crap, so much good and bad information in this thread. So much good mixed with misconceptions. I don't even know where to start, made it to page 4. Removing DI taking cooling benefits away from E85? DI being the sole reason high CR can be used? Do you guys even realize the injector is pulsed per combustion event? And that pulsing is a big deal for the fuel to mix? Remove the pulsing, increase injector size, so many things will change. The advantages and disadvantages of DI/port/TPI dissappear as RPM increase anyway. Some of you need to go do some homework. Tired of writing tech documents.

    Jack nothing. I made them send it back, after 3 weeks of doing nothing. I said screw it, we are working on our own HPFP fix now and the guys are working on our drop in LPFP solution. For right now, we will see what this parallel set up gets us

    Found it for everybody:

    Ok so got the parallel rig put together and installed. Its honestly pretty straight forward. You have to leave out the stock pump holder, and rotate the stock pump slightly so the venturi nozzle is not in its holder just slightly off to the side. This will allow the Walbro to share the bucket with it, while the venturi still pulls from its original location. Once you do that the Walbro with its sock will fit into the bucket with the stock pump and they actually stay in place very well. Once you get the bucket lid back in place you will see if will not fit now, but all you have to is cut out a small section and it clears both pumps great. If you secure the bucket top with a couple wire ties you are good to go. I just powered both pumps in tandem off the stock plug, if this is an issue and it pops fuses we will have to address it then. Once you get to the lines its just 5/16" fuel line coming off both pump out lets fed around the collapsible leg and coming into a 5/16" Tee. Secure it all with clamps and this will be going to the orange line. I put some extra hose on the orange line to give it a little freedom to move in the tank so not to pinch anything. It all fits back in pretty nice and seems like it should work well. Took a few pics. But not too many. Now we at least hopefully wont have to worry about low fuel pressure once we get stage 3 installed. Cheers

    @benzy89 - Thanks for finding that post!
    I'm curious how the fuel pump controller will hold up over time with all that draw...

    I have the Walbro 450 installed and was very easy.... Just waiting for a HPFP upgrade so I can move on to straight E85 and some N20 Click here to enlarge
