But you got to manually set your timing and its static. A VP44 pump is dynamic and changes to the loads and throttle...Advantages is you can manually control your timing
90% of the pumps internal part are lubed by the engine oil but the fuel stil plays a role in lubing the piston bores, DV's, and injectors...it is lubrciated by engine oil instead of fuel
I got to admit its the ulitmate for a IP pump but to convert a VP44 system to P-pump is going to cost big money too...That is why almost everyone who runs BIG fuel goes to a P-pump.
If that one guy that did over 900hp would have used NOS he would have been over 1000 easy. It's a shame he didn't though. Pretty much refused.sstockton said:The fact that they tend to last longer is the really big reason I can see to do it. Its true that the VP44 isn't as capable of producing giant numbers, but there are a few of them that are coming along quite nicely, and I think if you're willing to use drugs, the VP44 hasn't seen the peak of its potential yet, and will probably break the 1000hp mark soon; hopefully.
Probably not; the 24valve combustion chamber is a much more efficient design then the 12valves.wistlnwoodchuck said:has any one out there got any links to videos of a p-pumped 24 valve? i really wanna see if it smokes as bad as the 12's that would probably be the coolest a 24 valve runnin' a p-pump...
