Wow, what are putting to the wheels? At 5psi I was thinking around 200-225whp maybe? I thought it would be closer than that lol but looks fun!

Walbro pump fakes?

Hey guys, this may sound goofy but my 4 year old Walbro pump is on the fritz (check valve shot, losing pressure) on my '93 Altima KA (running NA for now). I'm planning on getting another but I found a bunch of different forum threads talking about Walbro fakes being made and sold even in parts store...

Ok I haven't had time to change the FPR (will do this week) but did notice some more odd fuel pressure readings. Usually as soon as I shut the car off after it's run for a few minutes, the Aeromotive fuel pressure gauge shows about 40lbs or so and it takes probably 15-20minutes for it to drop below ...

Sorry if I missed this but is the KA going to make it hard to have a decently balanced chassis? That car looks awfully small but then again, the front axle looks about as far forward as you can get in a car so most of the KA would be on or behind the axle I guess?

Sorry if I missed it but what ECU/tune/management are you running? Like ATL suggested, depending on OBD spec, the O2/CTS can cause real rich conditions. Also the O2 and coolant temp sensor if out of spec, may not trip a code but can really kill fuel economy as well as the coolant system/thermostat n...

Update: A local race shop, BB&T racing had an Aeromotive fuel pressure gauge. Hopefully it's accurate!

Anyway, just installed the gauge/t fitting and at idle the car is showing about 37lbs of pressure with the FPR vaccum line hooked up and about 48lbs or so with it disconnected.
