    Fuel pump upgrade after big turbo conversion, what are you running??

    Hi guys just after abit of advise really on a fuel pump to run on my car ive just had a gt2871R conversion done on my S3 and i know im going to have to fit a uprated fuel pump to safely run some good power, just want to see what everyone is using, what it cost you roughly to install and how and where youve put it really. oh and how noisey the set-up your running is. any info on this would be muchly appricated.


    Cheers Nick

    Either a bosch 044 or a DA-31 12v inline fuel pump installed in place of where the original fuel filter is the norm. Either use badger5 or 034 motorsport fittings so the pump connects to the original fuel lines. Use the original pump as a lift pump which will feed the inline.

    Parallel splice the power feed from the existing fuel pump wiring on top of the original pump so the inline pump runs with the original.

    Then simply relocate the filter to the engine bay(use an ibiza cupra filter as its smaller but still flows well), in the void down the drivers side of the engine under the charge pipe being the most used position.

    This is the route i and many have gone down and its a proven method. Ive not got pics to hand but im sure someone will pop up with some.

    044s have been known for being noisy but most arent. My DA-31 is louder than the standard but not its not bad. From the rear you get that powerful pump slight whine as youd expect but from in the car its silent.
