After hundreds of hours of design, engineering & real-world testing, we are proud to announce that we've made material improvements to our best-selling FS800-FV drop-in surge tank upgrade for the Ford FGX XR8 Turbo which now offers surge protection right down to 5% fuel tank capacity and eliminates the requirement or need for an external surge tank for street & track driven applications upto 600kw / 800 horsepower at @ 85psi (e85 - two (2) Walbro 460 Fuel Pumps) and 900kw / 1200 horsepower @ 85psi (e85 - 1100 horsepower support claims based on the use of two (2) Walbro 520 / 525 Fuel Pumps @ 14.5v)
Bulkhead Design: We've eliminated the need for 90 degree external fuel hose adapter fittings and simply incorporated a 90 degree thread profile for the Supply & Return ports directly into the bulkhead. The FS1000-FGT now features 8AN ports.
Active Valve System:The AVS are engineered to close and trap fuel under acceleration, cornering and breaking. The valves then open, when load is reduced, to allow fuel to rapidly re-fill the surge tank 83% quicker than the OEM system.
Venturi Vacuum Pump: The FS1000-FGT surge tank also features an internal Venturi Vacuum Pump. Developed in-house using leading CFD modelling software and techniques (200 data points, 250 man hours and 90 hours of continuous simulation), the FS1000 Venturi Vacuum Pump requires no wiring, draws no current yet is able to generate enough vacuum to pull through, using a fitting located on the lowest point of the surge tank, up to 200 litres per hour of fuel into the surge which will ensure that the fuel pumps are submerged at all times and there is no possibility of fuel starvation or fuel surge.
Plug & Play: The FS1000-FGT now features our 30A (per pin) 6 way Plug & Play electrical connector. While the drop-in module isn't "Plug & Play" per se, the installation can be completed in a mater of hours as ALL of the components and supporting hardware (fuel pressure regulator, fuel pressure regulator adapter) can be purchased with the kit; see AVAILABLE OPTIONS above
Composite Surge Tank:90% of the components are precision machined from aerospace grade 6061-T6 billet aluminium & the lightweight fuel bucket is designed using best practice engineering principles and stress tested to ensure safety for all motorsport applications. Due to the complexity and the high degree of engineering involved, the lower section of the surge tank is injection moulded with a proprietary super thick, durable and super strong composite fuel (unleaded, race, ethanol) resistance grade of aerospace plastic used by only the most advanced super car manufacturers.
Do I Need to Upgrade The Fuel Lines, Fuel Pressure Regulator or Fuel Rail ?
a) Fuel Lines & Fuel Rail:No- Testing has revealed that the factory fuel lines and fuel rail is more than sufficient to support the fuel volume without excessive pressurisation.
b) Fuel Pressure Regulator: Yes -The OEM fuel regulator is far too small must be upgraded and the good news is that we've developed a simple adapter which installs to the factory location and delivers fuel to a Turbosmart FPR1200 or FPR2000 regulator using a specially developed swivel union fitting; the Turbosmart FPR1200 and FPR2000 outlet then connects to the factory fuel line via another adapter.
