Default New low side fuel options

I e-mailed a couple companies that are very popular in the flex fuel kit business.

Option 1) They said they would releasing a low side kit later this week for $1200 and it should be good for 850-900hp on e85. They just released a low side kit for Gen6 Camaro.

Option 2) They said they are working on the prototype. Their other kits sell for around $1000.

Option 3) Not new but, barely spoken of. The good ol' BAP. Procharger has reported using them on gen6 Camaros. We also have a member here making 800whp with a cam, BAP and meth. He isn't sure how much the BAP actually helped, but said his tuner reported that the fuel pressure was holding steady vs before without the BAP. (Don't know the meth nozzle size).

At the current price to upgrade the low side I would probably never make the jump. Once these kits are released I would highly consider taking the plunge.

I'm making over 800whp with the stock low side. If I were to upgrade the low side, I would hope they are rated for a fair bit more power than that. Not a very useful jump at those numbers.

Anyone know what CPR's low side kit is good for?

You are either not the norm or are spraying tons of meth. Also the numbers quoted are on e85. Some tuners consider spraying tons of meth acceptable and others would prefer to not be meth dependent.

Meth may also not be evenly distributed resulting in hotter cylinders.

The general consensus with the LT1 longevity at high power levels is that the rings end up butting. So being able to better control the fuel delivery with the oem system helps.

I believe CPR claims around 900whp on e85.

Joe (CPR) did my low side and I can run full E85/Meth on my Z. He is on the forum frequently so hopefully he will chime in. I am also running an upper and lower pulley set up on mine.

My low side will support far more than any of the high side components out there will do. I am the only low side option sold as a kit that is 100% usa fittings, highest flowing pump, and does a pre filter sock on the feed for the pump along w/ an inline filter. I truly believe we put out the absolute highest quality system out there.

I've seen the CPR low side, and the guys at the shop assembling them. It is extremely high quality and works very well.

You guys looking at piggyback port solutions, since it seems hi psi injectors provide marginal benefits for guys looking to push the power envelop on E85?

we will be testing out a companies setup soon. but I still will prefer to use the larger di injectors and larger pump when it comes out.
