4 Tips to Making Your Electric Fuel Pump Quieter

September 03, 2020 2 min read

Before we get into the tips on how to quiet things down, lets talk about some common reasons why ANY brand fuel pump may be loud.  

  • Reverberation: Mounting a pump to sheet metal which might only have a few spot welds is much different than to a very solid frame.  On the same note if the sheet metal goes into an open cavity it can create a sound box of sorts.  
  • Sound deadening: An all out race car stripped of all sound deadening material might be different than a factory car.
  • Is it being loud a new thing? Sometimes when a pump starts working harder due to clogged filters (or becoming more clogged gradually) as well as a small or damaged power wire may elevate noise.  Be careful and knowing of this.

10 Reasons Your Turbo Smokes or Leaks Oil

July 26, 2020 5 min read

Turbo Oil Seals: Turbochargers are a fantastic way to add HUGE power to any powerplant, however, if the system is not designed properly you can spend a lot of time and money repairing turbos and chasing issues.   Before we dive in, I want to make sure everyone is on the same page of how a turbo oil seal works.  It is actually not a seal at all as you would  expect.  A turbo oil seal (there are two, one on the compressor side and one on the exhaust side) is actually most similar to a gapless piston ring.

Why You Need an Oil Catch Can on your Turbo or Boosted Engine

July 13, 2020 3 min read

High horsepower and more notably BOOSTED engines create conditions in an engine that are not typically or ever seen in their factory form.  Pressure built by faster moving engine parts, wider ring gaps, looser tolerances, and stresses on components can allow for crank case pressure to increase.  Not allowing the excess crank case pressure out can cause even more issues including: seal failure, loss of horsepower, oiling issues, and even fire hazards as oil exits seals.
