FUELAB’s line of electric fuel pumps, fuel filters, and fuel pressure regulators are designed to work together to create a fuel delivery system that is both responsive to engine demand and more reliable than “old-tech” systems.
Summit Racing carries these FUELAB products:
Prodigy Electric Fuel Pumps
The FUELAB system is based around the Prodigy fuel pump. Unlike traditional electric fuel pumps, the Prodigy has an internal pump speed controller that allows you to adjust pump motor speed to meet fuel demand. For carbureted engines, set pump the speed (reduced for street use, maximum for racing) with a simple pressure switch. For aftermarket EFI, the engine management system can vary pump speed via a pulsed signal. Either way, an expensive pump controller or voltage regulator isn't required to vary pump speed. Read the pump instruction sheet for available control options.
But that’s not where the fun ends. The Prodigy pump has a lightweight, low-mass brushless DC motor that can instantly react to changes in speed and fuel flow. That means the pump can keep up with the engine’s changing fuel demands with little to no pressure or flow fluctuation. The brushless design also means no brushes that can wear or corrode with less current draw.
Other Prodigy fuel pump features include:
- High efficiency, positive displacement pump
- Special pump housing shape for quiet operation and steady fuel pressure
- Lightweight—less than three pounds
- Billet aluminum case
- Long-life fluorosilicone static seals compatible with gasoline and alcohol
- Compatible with 12- and 16-volt electrical systems
FUELAB Prodigy Fuel Pumps are available for carbureted and EFI engines making up to 1,800 horsepower.
529 Series Electronic Fuel Pressure Regulators
Designed for use with Prodigy EFI fuel pumps, the 529 Series regulators are literally a “set and forget” system. Just set the static fuel pressure like you would with a traditional regulator. The FUELAB regulator takes over from there, constantly adjusting fuel pressure based on engine demand. The regulator also generates a signal to the fuel pump to control the return line flow rate. This feature reduces current draw when there is low fuel demand, preventing fuel overheating that leads to system failure.
The 529 Series Fuel Pressure Regulators can be set from 25 to 90 psi. They have a 1/8 inch NPT port for a pressure gauge and one to reference fuel pressure for forced induction applications. They do not require additional control systems or calibration and are compatible with gasoline, alcohol, and diesel.
FUELAB Fuel Filters are available with a choice of filter elements: 10 micron paper, 40 micron stainless steel (recommended as a fuel pump pre-filter), and six micron fiberglass for ultimate filtering. The filter housing has machined internal radii to help minimize fuel pressure drop, and the filters are rated to 200 psi maximum pressure. The filters are available in three and six inch lengths and are compatible with most fuels.
Summit Racing also carries other FUELAB fuel pressure regulators; lift pumps for diesel engines; replacement fuel filter elements; and regulator rebuild kits.
