The Aeromotive FPSC Advantage
Bottom line: You need to put enough fuel through the rail to feed the engine at a given load with enough leftover to keep the return line flowing and the pressure stable. Any flow over and above this is not absolutely required at that specific moment in time, but when you factor in the complexity of anticipating what the driver will do with his foot, it is wise not to slow the pump too much or one risks a dangerous lean condition. By utilizing a conservative but effective strategy that is user configurable with respect to base pump voltage followed by a progressive increase in duty cycle to a user-determined, high-rpm threshold, the new Aeromotive FPSC allows priority engine fueling with nominal fuel recycling. All the while, the pulse modulation strategy is totally friendly to the electric motor with the net effect of both extending fuel pump service life and further quieting pump operation.
We asked Clow his thoughts of the drawbacks of whether not using correct wiring or power to a fuel pump will affect the car's performance just as much as using a small inefficient pump. He said that was a pertinent question with respect to overall fuel system execution and that ultimately the system and its components are only as good as the installation. Failure to properly plumb and wire an Aeromotive high-performance fuel system is responsible for 98 percent of the difficulty people experience after the fact. This is simply critical and it's a crime, not to mention expensive, when the key details like proper wiring are allowed to render an otherwise capable fuel system unable to perform as advertised.
The original 16302 FPSC required...
The original 16302 FPSC required the user to adjust the rpm threshold to full voltage by way of a screwdriver pot accessible through a plug in the front panel. The new 16306 FPSC features a push button that, when the engine speed is at the desired crossover rpm, is simply pressed in order to set into memory. Given the fact the Aeromotive FPSC has always had sufficient adjustment range to handle engines from four to 10 cylinders, this eliminates fooling around to get the precise rpm set point desired.
