fuel pump/out of injector
I have a 2005 RXP with the following mods, X-charger w/wheel and spacer, riva ecu & 50lb injectors, rude fuel controller, 15-20r prop, riva intake grate, 4" intake, thru hull exhaust, x-intercooler, valve springs and retainers.
Everything was perfect last week until I decided to add the wheel and spacer to the charger. Testing at the lake a/f was in the 12.5 to 12.7 @wot. No matter how much fuel we thru in up top, a/f stayed the same. Before the spacer and wheel a/f was a steady 12.1 to 12.2
I have a rude fuel pressure reg. but it was at the house. When I got home I put it on and set base pressure at 60, no vacuum line attached. When I rap the throttle, no boost, fuel pressure drops. Do I need to upgrade to the walbro pump? I do have a set of 60lb injectors but that would mean I would have to re-tune the ski. Looking for the simple solution right now. I think its a fuel delivery problem? I don't think I am maxing out the 50lb injectors?
Oh, last week the ski ran 79.5 in the florida 90 degree heat, before the wheel and spacer.

The most important thing with your fuel pressure is... where is it at WOT It should be at least 5-6 psi above your base pressure. With your mods and the issues many have had with the oem fuel pump... I would not think twice about replacing it. There only $90 bucks or so, and a direct easy replacement!

It sounds like your injectors are running close to 100% duty cycle wich is why the fuel controller is not helping. You can either add some fuel pressure or step up the injector size and tune the controller accordingly. I also suggest getting the fuel pump.

Thanks guys, Thats what I was afraid of, I guess Its no big deal. I will pick up a walbro pump tomorrow, and throw in the 60's. Is the walbro a gss342? Thanks, Patrick

Patrick, Did you get the prop repitched before trying to tune in the new SCer? I was at 8550rpm last weekend on your ski. You should be on the limiter, if you didn't get the prop done. That will mess up the AFR.

Hello JP, I was on the limiter, then we put cals 81mm nozzle on to bring the rpms down to 8500-8550. I just dropped the prop off to Duke so he can do his magic....My main concern is the lack of fuel pressure when I just rap the throttle on the hose. It drops like 5-6 pounds with no load. Whats it doing on the big end? I'm going to put a Walbro pump in it Monday and re-test. I'll keep you posted...I'm sure you My ski will take you 80+ on Sun

I hope the fuel pump works for you. Get the prop pitched for the 83mm nozzle. It may take two tries to get it just right. I think Hector needs a fuel pump, too. That ski is going to be flying by next weekend. Close to 82mph I am guessing.
