RADIUM FUEL PUMP HANGER For SUBARU WRX, STI 08-21/FORESTER SH/LIBERTY 04-09 (No Pumps Included)
20-0380-00Regular price $799.00
The Radium fuel pump hanger for the late model Subaru vehicles replaces the stock in-tank hanger and allows the use of 1 or 2 high-flow aftermarket fuel pumps in the stock fuel tank. No permanent modifications to the vehicle are required making installation a simple bolt-on job. Each fuel pump has it's own dedicated 6AN male outlet, which can be combined together into single feed line with the use of a "Y" fitting, or with one of the plumbing kit options on this page. The return fuel and crossover fittings are also 6AN male. The system is safe to use with alternative fuels such as E85.
The machined assembly mounts in the factory fuel tank using the OEM hold-down flange and gasket. The OEM fuel level sender and temperature sensor (if equipped) are retained.
Unlike compact multi-pin electrical connectors, the custom designed stainless steel electrical studs easily handle the high current demand from aftermarket fuel pumps. These serviceable connections are hermetically sealed and impervious to all standard and exotic fuels. The low profile design keeps all wiring tucked nicely underneath the OEM cover plate. Nonconductive acorn nuts are provided to prevent any accidental short circuits. Crimp-on ring terminals and heat shrink are provided for external wiring connections.
REVENTING FUEL STARVATION
The kit includes a venturi jet pump integrated within the collector box that features a new integrated pressure relief valve. This device transfers fuel from the passive side of the OEM fuel tank to the active side where the pump(s) reside. When fuel pump flow is increased, the OEM jet pump becomes too restrictive creating unwanted backpressure in the FPR return line causing excessive fuel rail pressure. The unique design of the Radium jet pump creates suction while not providing too much restriction in fuel return line.
The anodized aluminium collector box keeps fuel trapped around the pumps, helping to prevent fuel starvation. There is a 1" check valve incorporated on the front side of the tank that serves as a trap door that allows fuel in but not out of the collector box. Furthermore, all returning fuel from the pressure regulator return and the crossover hose enter the collector box through a one-way duckbill valve keeping it full. The duckbill valve prevents back flow and reduces noise from fuel spray. The collector box also permits a mounting solution for the OEM fuel level sender.
NOTES ON ELECTRICAL
Single pump applications can reuse the OEM fuel pump controller wiring, but it is recommended to upgrade the OEM wiring as high flow fuel pumps draw additional current requiring larger gauge wire. Fuel pump wiring kits can be purchased separately (Part # 17-0031). Select qty1 for single pump applications and qty2 for dual pump applications.
When using two pumps, it is highly recommended to stage the second pump to only come on when needed, such as under boost. This can be done with a programmable engine management system or with a pressure switch, such as Radium Part # 20-0236.
Each pump has it's own dedicated +/- electrical connections. The factory level sender and fuel temperature sensor are re-used. Consult the installation instructions link at the top of this page for more details.
