Dual Bosch 044 Fuel Pump Surge Tank

New to JBtuned.com is our Bosch 044 Dual Pump Surge Tank.

Bosch 044 Dual Fuel Pump Surge Tank

This is our Brand New Surge Tank for use with twin Bosch 044 Fuel Pumps

This surge tank setup has been designed to offer the following benefits over other alternative ways to setup fueling on your high horsepower setup.

*Simple straight forward install, no welding, no sumping, no mounting fuel lines and pumps underneath the car.

*Eliminates the need for long lengths of braided line from the front to back of the car. You should be able to install this fuel tank in the engine bay and use less than 8′ of fuel line in most applications.

*Eliminates the risk of fuel starvation from fuel sloshing around in a minimally or un-baffled tank.

*Fuel pumps are constantly submerged in fuel leading to quieter operation and longer life for the fuel pump.

*Our surge tanks are anodized for protection against more corrosive fuels. (E85 and Methanol Ready)

*Perfect for installs where a plastic tank exists from the factory and there is no option to sump.

*Easier to install than typical dual hanger in-tank setups and more versatile in the long term

Included is the fuel log that sits atop the dual bosch 044 pumps so that they can use a common fuel line. This has only been tested for use with our surge tanks and do not guarantee that it will work in any other setup. Available in -8 and -6 sizing. So please specify which size you need after order is placed

Note

The pumps DO need to be vertical when mounted so that is the only consideration you need when figuring out where to mount this setup.

It did not take more than one night  on our local skid pad with our S14 to realize we need to make some big improvements if i actually wanted to keep this car on the pad. (Our s14 is a bullet at best) The upgrades came in the way of a lot of power steering replacement parts. We ordered a new rack and I did not want to just toss in factory tie rods as I am looking for some much-needed steering angle. I had a set of circuit sport inners and outers in the shop but we had just opened the account with spl parts and I was interested to see how they would stack up and if our customers were really going to see a reason for spending the extra cash on their products.

My expectation was nothing more than a Circuit Sports or Megan racing in quality which I was ok with because that’s what most local drifters are running. I got my set of SPL Parts  V5 outer tie Rods and went with Tein 350Z Inners as SPL recommends. When I opened the box I was surprised to say the least. There really is no comparison. See for yourself.

I took a few pics of the difference for reference. Also we cut the bump stops while we were working on the car. Snapped a pic of that also.

I didn’t take any pictures of the install but I’m sure a quick search will show plenty of how to’s.

I did however grab a picture after we removed the steering bump stops from the lower control arms.

I was impressed and I am personally happy with the decision. No issues with the tein inners or spl outers and I recommend these to anyone who is looking for a real quality setup.

Now I admit that I am kind of bashing C.S. here but at the end of the day I know a lot of people use their products and we sell them ourselves all the time. They work great. Not everyone needs Formula D Super strength tie rods and we get that.

The purpose of this post besides talking about our beater is just to really get a good look at what we plan to spend our money on. Its hard to get an idea of quality, size difference, performance gains, and advertisements and product reviews only do part of the job. When we have the opportunity to stack products side by side like this. We will. So we all can make better product decisions.
