Fuel pump voltage booster
Cool stuff from MSD.. An alternative to an RRFPR? Should also stabilize voltage and reduce fuel pump pressure flare from voltage variations.
Anybody ever used one?

I use that same one on my car and it works great, but I wouldn't use it on my ski for several reasons. It's not a waterproof device. You still have the stock fuel pressure regulator holding you back. The stock regulator is removed with either of the RRFPR kits. You have to splice into the factory wire harness to connect the MSD unit. MSD unit is still $400+
The RRFPR kits are plug and play and very easy to adjust.

I know guys that use them on cars. Works great, they only use them for short times while spraying nitrous so the fuel pump can maintain fuel pressure.
I would think for use on a ski, it might be hard on the fuel pump at the higher voltages for long periods of time.

From my experience, these are just as stated above, a band-aid.
The fuel pump is not designed to run at the higher voltage. When it fails, and it will, it will either crap out all at once, or start to "slow down". If it slows down, well ...... pop goes the weasel cause the weasel goes pop.
We take these off at work when a customer comes in with tuning or running problems. Then and rising rate regulators are 2 "cheap" ways of doing things.
But as they say..... To each his own
