If you are placing performance parts on your truck it is highly recommended that you use a performance lift pump such as the Airdog fuel system or Fass Fuel Systems. An Airdog or Fass Fuel System will supply the Injection pump with the fuel pressure that is need no matter what performance upgrades you have on your truck. We also offer several different gauge options from Autometer and Isspro to monitor your fuel pressure so you know when your lift pump is going out and can fix the problem before you lose your Injection Pump. The cheapest way to monitor your fuel pressure would be BD's early warning light. Preventing problems before they occur is the best way to take care of your truck.
The fuel injection pump (VP44) is an electronic rotary distributor pump. The pump performs four basic functions:
- Producing the high fuel pressure required for injection
- Metering the exact amount of fuel for each injection cycle
- Distributing the high-pressure, metered fuel to each cylinder at the precise time
- Varying the timing relative to engine speed.
*Performance chip & add on disclaimer - Tampering with the pumps wires can cause premature pump failure. If the wires are cut the pump is no longer warrantable, and any repairs that need to be made to the injection pump will be the buyers responsibility. In the VP44 pump the fuel is used to cool and lubricate the pump, and the tolerances between the head and the rotor is very fine. Performance chip add on's affect the cooling rate of the pump. The pump will become hotter due to excessive RPM's from the chips programming. When the throttle is backed off the fuel to the pump is reduced, and the pumps cooling capabilities are greatly reduced. Since the pump is hotter from the increased RPM's the rotor seizes in the head and the pump fails. An alternative to cutting into the pumps wires is to use a chip that plugs directly into the trucks ECM. This approach will allow for an increase in HP while not excessively heating the fuel pump.
