View Full Version : Stupid me!!!!!!!!!!!

More fuel woes.... the other day, I fried my in-line pump fuel relay, so I went to get a new relay, but forgot how the wires went, so decided to do a temporary fix by hard-wiring it to a switch that I mounted inside the car. Well yeah, that's all dandy and all, but going to work on Saturday, my dumbass forgot to turn it off. The pump runs for ~2 hrs and finally the insulation melts off the wiring, and then through some of my car alarm wires. So the alarm starts going off and a friend that I work with (who's also very-much into Hondas) heard an alarm and its mine and the car is smoking (from the insulation burning). The pump finally drained the battery (fire-free, thank god), so I jump the car, get it going, but its having a hard time having fuel flow through that pump, and I might have burned the pump out. So the car is chillen until I can fix it tomorrow.

Chris, i have the Paxton version of your pump, will support 1100 HP!!!! more than ten hondas put together:) i dont know the condition, i will GIVE it to you if you want. i had probs with it but i was "pulling" fuel uphill, it did'nt like that.

It sounds like you'd better put in some real pump wires when you replace them. Wires should NEVER get hot enough to do that under normal conditions - and fuses are installed to protect wiring under abnormal conditions like a stalled pump. You were probably dropping so much voltage with your old wires that your pump wasn't performing well anyway. I have rewired my car's with AWG10 (that's 10 Gauge wire), and I have a stock OEM Bosch pump. You need to put in the same gauge wiring yourself, and make sure it is fused, not straight off the battery. Good luck, sounds like you have plenty of it still ;)

i still think you sould just do it the right way and take all that stock shit out, run the sx pump and stainless lines.
I've still got all the an fittings pretty much, that's the expensive part too.
but you know, whatever....

hey mecham, will that fuel pump work on an Integra GSR?
10-07-2002, 09:14 PM
ALWAYS put a fuse as close to the battery as possible when you add ANY wiring... You have no idea how many "near" fires I have seen working car audio...

Yeah, hence all the hammers. Yeah Shane, I'll take that pump from you if you don't need it. I'm going to try to fix the car tomorrow, we'll see how that goes.

Chris, what about that red turbo integra that ran 12.2@115 at the test n tune 2 weeks ago. That baby is a daily driver. Its the one with the picture on the back window of a turbo mixed with a surernege. I think it says speed injection. I spoke with him about his car and he also has a 40 shot of giggle. this post is regaurding your sig...
10-08-2002, 02:29 PM
Oh, Josh? Did he beat my time? That bastard. Alright, sig withdrawn.
10-08-2002, 09:55 PM
Yeah, i saw him run the 12.2, it was pretty sick....your car is twice as cool though cause you could run a 12.2 with your setup right now easy and you dont have giggle juice.
10-09-2002, 02:12 AM
