    High Pressure Fuel Pump Upgrade Help

    I am looking to upgrade my hpfp, I have seen a Loba hpfp for £525 delivered, Is any body using this pump? Did want a Apr but cant afford £800 for a fuel pump lol. Did look at an autotech but I have heard they fail. Any suggestions would be great

    Is this the Loba HPFP for the 2.0TFSI....If so snap their hand off as thats cheap. Very good and reliable fuel pump. Remember to change the cam follower at the same time as changing the pump regardless of condition or limited use of the old one.

    Good Advice here.

    In my opinion the LOBA HPFP is the best on the market.

    You could also get the APR rebuild as an option

    Best pumps and tested is the APR and Loba. Both should deliver what the pressure that most maps request

    I run good pressure with standard pump in several TFSI

    110bar standard - I am 122bar (since March 2013) without problem. Most cars I run 117-120bar without issue, and I hear of some pushing 130bar but I wouldn't do this personally with stock component. But people are doing it.

    You can increase power without touching rail pressure (mid RPM), but BWA is a must! Do not want 'lean' engine!


    I hear some pumps used to fail (maybe Autotech or KMD), so best option is pressure tested as mentioned above :D

    To understand how the HPFP work take a look on the APR website APR 2.0T FSI High Pressure Fuel Pump

    It has a very good explanation on how it works and why you can get more power from an upgrade

    Cheers!

    My friend has LOBA I set to 130bar max. I have friend with special HPFP 175 bar around 600hp, most people around 140-150 bar. I'll do some reading on it, but most pages i see online are people saying how 'good' it felt straight away (such is the human mind).

    If they fit better pump with no software change it is still 110bar :P

    I'll do some reading today :D

    Ahh APR yeah good pump! Basic Stage 1st I wouldn't bother.

    High power setup will need this, I'm a fan of simple tuning and leave car alone. If simple 40-50hp increase is not enough I advise people to buy Porsche 911 instead ;-)

    Better in my opinion to keep engine stock and fully serviced at Main Dealer. I let them know if a car is modified (software) and not have problem
