Default Please help me Identify this Fuel Reg.

As listed it says its a AeroMotive. When i called him back he said miss print and it was an SX. Supposily SX and Aero were a joint componey building parts for one another. ANyway i just want to know what it is so i hook it up corrctly. It has 2 vacuume ports which i havent ever seen before.
The reg is the lower of the 3 regs the fully red one with the bracket on it. I can get closer pics of it if needed thanks for any and all help

That regulator doesn't look like anything I've ever seen from Aeromotive, it might be an SX part. Although it doesn't look like anything in their current lineup. You might want to shoot them an email http://www.sx-performance.com/Regulators.htm

Looks to me like the FMU unit that procharger sends out with the kit .....2 vaccum line is as folloews, one is for Boost referncing and one is to the air horn to suck fuel into the motor if the diaphram ruptures. I think it was made in house for them.....

I know its no an SX reg because i called them up and said they hadnt seen it before. As for FMU i will check those out. Bryan do you know which port does what as is the top one for boost ref. or is it the lower. I assume the lower is the fuel by pass for the rupture but dont want to just guess.
Thanks

That regulator is the factory procharger fmu regulator,its supposed to be boost referencing, They are problem prone,I wouldn't waste my time with it,most guys end up tearing it off in disgust because they either stick after going into boost or don't boost reference reliably. A much better way to go is to use a std efi aeromitive regulator to set and hold your base pressure then send its discharge/return fuel loopthru a second regulator,a bell/cartech industries rising rate 2027regulator like shown in my second pic. I discovered this setup after having alot of problems with my own factory procharger regulator. Tyler Crockett has endosred this setup and also uses it now,Smitty
