Cartech Stage I & II Fuel Systems
Our Fuel Systems are the most complete systems on the market today. With two research and development vehicles running in many of the Ford Racing events, testing is always ongoing.
The Stage I and Stage II fuels systems both use a single Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump and filter, with stainless braided -8 (1/2") feed lines and -6 (3/8") return. The biggest difference between the two is the fuel rails. Stage I is perfect for individuals who already have rails and a regulator. Stage II utilizes the 5/8" I.D. billet aluminum rails with a billet Aeromotive adjustable regulator. Stage II-M uses the USCG Certified Marine pump, Stage II-E uses the upgraded Eliminator pump, and the Stage II-P uses the upgraded Pro-Series pump.
You can purchase the items in a kit form
or separately. The following pages also contain a diagram on how
to route your fuel system, and the components needed to complete
Cartech Renegade Stage III Fuel System
Do you have a 600 plus hp street mustang? Then the
Cartech Renegade Stage III Fuel System is perfect for you! This kit includes the
Cartech pick up tube, synthetic filter, twin Pierburg pumps (255LPH @ 90psi), -8 feed line,
-6 return line, Cartech 5/8" ID billet aluminum fuel rails, Aeromotive EFI
relay kit, adel clamps, all hose ends and instructions!
These pumps are the quietest and most reliable on the market
today. This kit is capable of supporting over 1000 hp and is a
true daily driver fuel system! The Stage III Renegade system can also be ordered
with twin external Walbro pumps (255 LPH @ 70psi).
Fuel Pick Up Tube
A Cartech original, developed in 1989 for
the Mustang and T-Bird. The pick up tube is for cars that need
more than the stock, in tank, pumps can provide. The tube allows
the user to run an external hi-volume pump with your factory
unmodified fuel tank. Inside all E.F.I. tanks there is a baffled tube that keeps
fuel from moving away from the pick up area. The Cartech pick up tube also
allows you to keep a screen in front of the fuel pump, the way it was
engineered. This helps to prevent the user from installing the filter before the
pump. The fuel pick up tube is made
from aircraft aluminum and welded on a jig for accurate
reproduction. The foot at the bottom of the 1/2" feed tube
allows the use of the factory Ford screen located on the end of
the original pump assembly. No modification is needed to install,
the the pick up tube uses factory o-ring and retainer.
Our fuel rails are of the highest quality found anywhere! The rail material is 6061-T6 aluminum alloy and can be brushed, anodized red or blue, and etched with our logo. These larger rails (5/8") are designed for those racers making more than 600 hp at the engine or for the show car enthusiast.
Why 600 hp or more? We found that the stock rails work up to approximately 610/625 on the dyno with our fuel rail fittings. We've tested Y- blocks to the back of each rail with one big pump and also two smaller pumps. We cut the rails and welded fittings on all four corners. None of these efforts allowed us to move enough fuel to the injectors to make more power. The need for fuel pulsing reduction in the rail and increasing the injector's reservoir became apparent about 600 BHP.
These rails are designed to clear factory and MSD distributors and all available brands of injector clips ( i.e.. Electromotive, Haltech, Ford, and Digital Fuel Injection) so that no cutting or grinding is necessary. All fuel entry and exit holes are drilled and tapped to 3/8 National Pipe Thread ( NPT ) to accept a -10, -8 or -6 fittings. The injector holes are drilled then reamed, with a shoulder left at the very top to insure that the user cannot push the injectors too far into the rail and cause leakage.
The Fuel Rails also come with all the
necessary mounting brackets that allow you to mount them in the
same location as your factory rails, using the original bolts. A
set of four 1/4" aluminum spacers are provided for
distributor clearance. For example, the original Ford unit and
large MSD unit use them, however the small distributors do not.

Aeromotive Racing Fuel Pumps
The Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump is made from billet aluminum with the heat sink and brackets built in. This pump is anodized with a red finish featuring -10 inlets and outlets, the pump is rated at 90 gph @ 45 psi. Good to approximately 800 HP. The USCG Marine pump is a technology upgraded A1000, certified for industrial and marine applications with the same flow of 90 gph @ 45 psi. The Eliminator pump flows 35% more fuel than the A1000 and is rated at 123 gph @ 45 psi, has a -12 inlet, and a -10 outlet. The Eliminator is good to approximately 1100 HP. The Pro-Series pump is rated at 167 gph @ 45 psi, has -12 inlets and outlets and is good to approximately 1450 HP. With years of severe testing you cannot find a better value.
One of the biggest problems people with hi-performance
engines face is fuel delivery. From top fuel dragsters down to
the slightly modified street car. It seems some people never take
into account that when adding more air to the engine , you must
have fuel to go with it to make power. One without the other will
not create power; you must have both, and the right amount. It is
urgent your fuel system keep up with the demands of a performance
engine, both in volume and pressure. The first step is to choose
the right fuel pump. Most manufacturers rate their pumps at a
certain pressure. The chart below will show you the effects of
fuel flow, versus pressure rated fuel flow. All models were
tested by this company with a consistent 12 volt charging system.
We carry the Pierburg Hi Pressure Fuel Pump. These are the same ones we use in our supercharger and turbocharger kits. They also work for low horsepower applications as well.
Pierburg Pump Aeromotive Fuel Pump
Fuel Pump Mounting Plate
Three plates to choose from; a single Bosch booster pump bracket, an Aeromotive - S/X - or Paxton, or a dual plate. Made from 0.090" aluminum sheet and comes complete with stainless steel mounting bolts.
Want to convert your carbureted intake to fuel injection, or add additional injectors to your motor? These weld-in Injector Bosses are what you need! Ready to weld onto any aluminum intake manifold. Made from 6061-T6 billet aluminum alloy. These are for the bottom mount only.
Aeromotive Adjustable EFI Fuel Pressure Regulator
This regulator features an adjustable
static fuel pressure, boost sensitive with a lock nut and stat-o-seal
washers to insure positive pressure. The regulator comes
with two #10 inlets and one #6 outlet with machine threads and o-rings.
The regulator is made from billet aluminum and anodized red. The regulator also comes
with a mounting bracket, however the fittings and o-rings are
Cartech Racing Fuel Filter
The fuel filter has a #10 inlet along with
a #10 outlet. The element measures 4 5/8" long and
filters to 8 microns.
The replacement element measures 4 5/8" long and filters to 8 microns. Elements need to be replaced every year and/or every 10,000 miles. Easy replacement! All the user needs to do is unscrew one end of the filter cap and drop it in.
