Best Fuel Reg when using e85 / 90

Hey guys,

Ive got a Aeromotive A1000 fuel reg i run on pump fuel but have been told that it may not support E85 and the tripple pump setup.

Just wanted to see what everyone else is using fuel pressure reg wise on e85??

I have been told the Aeromotive 13110 is a good way to go....



Thanks
Damon

It seems that Turbosmart makes a pretty solid unit. Seems like not a lot of people consider them but I'm using their -8an sized unit for my build.


Fuel Pressure Regs ? is there much of a difference? | Adaptronic

That comparison compares a wide range of regulators that are in different classes. The one OP is looking to use is a much more close competitor compared to the aeromotive regulator used in the test. 1000hp vs 2000hp thats a significant design difference.

I have two of those aeromotive regs on my car, and the fuel pressure is no where NEAR as linear as the turbosmart FPR2000 that I just used.. I will be switching all cars, and all builds to the turbosmart units..
