Tech Answer

Is it safe to run a 255 lph (liters per hour) fuel pump on my almost stock vehicle?

Yes. Most late model vehicles are equipped from the factory with a fuel pump designed to provide between 90-110 lph (liters per hour) of fuel at a specific fuel pressure. When the fuel system is subjected to a sudden load, such as full throttle application from a low rpm point, these lower-rated factory fuel pumps can lose their ability to maintain proper fuel flow. That can result in a lean condition and possible detonation. High volume fuel pumps provide enough fuel at any given engine speed to prevent such problems, and should be considered a must-have for supercharged, turbocharged, or nitrous oxide-equipped applications.
