SEMA Preview: Aeromotive Diesel Lift Pump Now Available

Aeromotive Diesel Lift PumpThe Aeromotive Diesel Lift Pump is sure to be one of the most talked-about new products at next week’s SEMA Show, but you don’t have to wait to get your hands on one! The much-anticipated product is now available for 2001-2010 GM Duramax and 2008-2010 Ford Powerstroke applications.

Following years of research and testing, Aeromotive says it has revolutionized the diesel lift pump concept. The Aeromotive pump addresses some of the most vexing issues that have plagued other lift pumps–pressure control, quarter-tank operation, motor shaft seal failure, and more. Aeromotive’s flow-through design solves the shaft seal failure because there is no shaft seal to fail or leak. For the Duramax platform, Aeromotive included a fail-safe valve that allows fuel to bypass the pump in the event of failure or a no-run condition.

The Aeromotive Diesel Lift Pump features a brushless motor design for reliable operation, a convoluted diaphragm regulator for precise pressure control, built-in check valve to keep the system primed, and a single filter to reduce maintenance cost. It’s available in a complete kit, retro-fit kit, or as an individual pump.

What kind of results can you expect from the pump?

He had it dyno’d twice in the same day at the same dyno – before and after he had the Aeromotive Diesel Fuel Pump installed – and saw an increase from 461.2 horsepower and 911.8 ft.-lbs. of torque to 488.4 horsepower and 1002 ft.-lbs. of torque.

That’s an increase of 27.2 horsepower and 90.2 ft.-lbs. of torque in one day, from one product.

This is Shawn Pearcy’s 2004.5 LLY powered Chevy Duramax. The truck is stock with tune only. He took it to the dyno,…
