    Im thinking of buying an A1000 fuel pump for my T76 Mach just wanted to know how much HP it can support on E85. Ive read that it could handle from the 650-800 HP range but im not positive. Im looking to make at least 700hp is this possible/safe? Anyone out there have any info on this? I'd appreciate the info thanks.

    The A1000 is good up to 850hp range before it's done.

    Their website says "Up TO 1000 HP" with FI. This would be on gas.
    Aeromotive*|*11101 - A1000 Fuel Pump

    Summit Racing rates these pumps at 600 lbs per hour.
    Aeromotive A1000 Fuel Pumps 11101 - SummitRacing.com

    Here is the conversion for liters per hour:
    Amount : 600.00 pounds per hour - Gasoline (lb/hr)
    Equals : 368.11 liters per hour (l/hr)

    So the pump only puts out 368 liters per hour. That's not much for a single pump on E85.

    Maybe the pumps are under rated? :shrug:

    I know of plenty of E85 cars on a single A1000 without an issue pushing over 750. Fuelab is the other company that would be something to look at

    Run 2 A1000's and you can over flow the 405's. LOL But a single external pump is safer all day every day. Food for thought.

    It may be safer, but I don't drive race cars, I like it low key

    i advised Glenns Performance of i would be making around 800whp on E and he said the 1000 would be pretty close to being maxed at those #'s and told me to go with the eliminator pump.

    Neither do I. I put 30 miles on mine every day plus messing around with a single A1000 external pump. Driven it 3+hrs at a time. No issues. :beer:

    It'll make around 700 rwhp on e85 at 90% duty cycle, which is about as much as I would push it on my personal vehicle.

    ive heard from several people running these types of pumps having heat issuses with them including my tuner and one of his mechanics. im going to run a fuel cooler just to be safe.

    Yea you can run a fuel cooler if you're that worried about it. But I'm just saying I've had this pump for a few years now with no issues.. :)

    I dont run e85 but I used to daily drive my car with one and would make 2-3 hour round trips no problems (I have a stock tank with a sump about 10 gallons of gas at least all the time though)
