I'm a great believer in installing brand new pumps rather than second hand ones of unknown vintage. If you scroll down to the business "for sale" section Nu Del (http://www.nzparts.co.nz) is selling Denso pumps at a good price - as he says its the same actual pump as the big name ones for half the price.

Thanks for all your feedback guys.

SafT. Is really convincing me haha. After seeing his car, im sure he knows what he is on about! Ill go for a good in tank pump. Don't want a 2nd hand one thats for sure. If I ever go for bigger power or end up getting surge on the track I can always upgrade :)

Something is weird, when I click on the NZ parts website link, it goes to my trademe listings?

NZParts is doing a special on alot of fuel stuff so be a good idea to talk to him. Though, DSR is the only company registered supplier of Bosch in NZ apparently?

Petroject are the main Bosch importer afaik.

Nz performance sell genuine 044's at a pretty good price and are good to deal with.

Oh not doubting that yours aren't genuine. I was trying to say if he didn't wanna go with you there's only DSR? Sorry for the confusion :)

Saft is bang on the money, the normal braided hoses let off the fumes.

From what I uderstand, normal braided hose has a rubber liner and braid over the rubber hose to strengthen it. Teflon hose has a teflon liner that prevents any fumes (also stronger and can take more heat) from getting out and has braid over the teflon hose.

I was told that with teflon, it can get greasy if hot enough (engine bay on racecar) and slip out of fittings. But that is teflon hose on it's own. The braid might give it something to grip onto.

I would buy a 2 litre Sard collector tank that can fit a internal Bosch 044 fuelpump and use a stock GTR fuelpump as a lift pump -

http://www.sardracing.com/products/fuelcollectortank.htm

It should be quieter due to using internal fuelpumps, easier to setup, takes up less boot space due to fuelpump being inside collector tanks and look better.

This is a load right here, i would not belive a word DSR claims in this sort of situation, he clamed to be a huge SDU sponsor at one stage, that was news to the committee at the time, when we found that out we requested he remove SDU logos and such from his site and we were ignored. this is going back 2-3years ago now, i know a number of places to get genuine Bosch parts/pumps and i can tell you now they dont come thru DSR.

Its a marketing ploy that will one day bite him in the a$$, especilly if Bosch read it and its not true.

Its possible ( haven't seen any evidence yet) that the Sard is made by Denso.

ive never put the reg return line back into the surge tank, put a temp gauage on the fuel return and youll see why.
hot fuel can be great for economy but not great for controlling detonation thus when you return into the surge tank its pumped back into the fuel rail.
