On the Dyno it was 44-46 at 7lbs and a little higher at 11.5 lbs. The gaffrig/Lorivisi electric fuel pressure gages in the boat do not read correctly even after being calibrated by them,So I really don't pay much attention to the gages If I had to do it over again I would use a differently name brand pump. like essex that comes with the Whipple. but I all ready had them. I have had trouble with the Areomotive, I have a spare for that reason. They have been working good for the last 2 years.My fuel water separator is mounted to high and is sometimes hard to prim,especially when low of fuel.That pump must be loser??

I run a bypass back to the tank # 6.pressure stays pretty steady that way and doesn't heat the fuel deadheading it back ti the filter like most people do

The Race Pumps are great!!!
The only problem is that it pulses so you have to run his regulator too. It will screw up other style regulators. But they do pump some serious fuel.
