If you’re one of the people who treat their vehicle like their child, you understand the importance of quality. When it comes to efficiency, diesel is as high-quality as you can get: the diesel engine rates number one for most efficient internal combustion and can run you between 400 and 800 miles on a single tank.
While your diesel vehicle is already doing great, sometimes we feel the call of the wild — an urge to really ramp up the speed and power and feel that engine rumble. Upgrading your fuel system is one of the easiest ways to do just that.
Parts Of A Whole
Diesel fuel systems are comprised of several components: the tank, which of course holds the diesel fuel; the fuel air separation system, which does exactly what it says on the tin; the diesel fuel lift pump, which is responsible for pulling fuel from the tank to the injector; and then the injector, which injects the fuel into the engine’s internal combustion chamber. Diesel fuel pumps play a major role, but investing in performance fuel injectors first can maximize your vehicle’s fuel delivery and atomization.
Depending on your vehicle, you have a variety of different types of performance fuel injectors to choose from. However, we recommend you choose a provider that can ensure a custom fit; these injectors are created and designed for your make and model, ensuring and original equipment (OE) fit. While doing your research, look out for companies that rigorously test for leaks, precise pressure, and spray pattern consistency — it shows that they’re as dedicated to your satisfaction as you are.
Once you select an injector that works with your system, you may want to look into upgrading your diesel fuel pumps to get even more power. High-flow diesel fuel pumps ensure optimal fuel flow to increase horsepower, torque, and throttle response.
It can be quite astonishing how a few simple changes can turn a boring diesel car or truck into a powerful beast. The amount of power you want (and money you’re willing to spend) dictates what performance fuel injector and fuel pump system you end up with. So, what are you waiting for? Go show that road whose boss!
