Bosch 044

Hey guys,
my high pressure fuel pump has been on its way out for a bit now and i think its finally given up...

Im going to buy a Bosch 044 fuel pump, which is more than enough for NA, and for turbos to an extent. I plan to buy one cus ill be going turbo soon enough and wil have to replace pump anyways so i might as well kill 2 bird with one stone (or pump heh)


Ide just like to know if i will incur any problems running such a good pump on a totally NA setup

cheers

Carlos

just keep the fuel pressure the same as it is with the stock pump and it will be fine.

a surgetank is a good idea aswell

Will wanna make sure your intake pump is in good condition still and is pushing through enough fuel, otherwise it will blow...

you will still need to make a new braket to hold it (IF GOING IN ORIGINAL PLACE) and put in a relay to power it as it will blow the stock pump fuse real quick.

Seriously, i'd find a 2nd hand one for the time being till turbo time comes...

sorry to take over the thread but it is ok to run a 044 pump on a mild vl turbo setup (170+rwkw)? I was told that it could possibly flood with too much fuel, is this correct or BS?

Yeah but you have a couple more kw's than me, just a few
The only reason i ask is because im gonna get some more proper mods done in the future and i dont wanna have to keep on buying different fuel pumps.

As long as your fuel reg is fine it will only let through what is needed and the rest will head back to the tank...
