Forced induction applications need fuel, fuel, and more fuel. Today’s in-tank fuel pumps are not up to the task, but DeatschWerks has the problem licked with the second incarnation of their DW300 fuel pump, which offers a 20 percent flow increase over the older version of the pump.
DeatschWerks has redesigned the DW300 (V2) in-tank fuel pump to offer greater flow with no significant increase in current draw. The new DW300 pump flows 26% more at its peak and 20% more on average across all pressures. The low amperage draw minimizes pump temperatures, maximizes pump life and reduces stress on OE wiring.
The increases in flow were specifically engineered for high pressures (60-90 psi), where forced induction applications need it the most. Conversely, fuel flow has been limited at low pressures (30-50 psi) to minimize heat generation in return fuel systems. This dual zone approach results in a flatter flow curve, which maximizes both performance and reliability for supercharged or turbocharged applications.
There has been no price increase or part number change for the V2 DW300. In preparation for the transition, V2 DW300 fuel pumps have been shipping for several months, so customers can be assured that recent purchases of DW300’s are of the V2 design.
All DeatschWerks fuel pumps are ethanol compatible and come with an industry-leading 3-year warranty. More information about the new DW300, including a comparison graph, can be found at: http://www.deatschwerks.com/new-dw300-release.
