2. Turbosmart fuel pressure regulators
TURBOSMART has gone back to the drawing board to develop their new range of fuel pressure regulators. Designed from the ground up to be as compact and light as possible while delivering stable pressures under all conditions, the valve is now ‘bedded in’ at the factory to ensure no variation in base pressure for improved reliability. And it’ll still work with any fuel type, including E85, methanol and race fuels. Available for 800hp, 1200hp and 2000hp fuel system applications, Turbosmart has an FPR to suit most set-ups.
