Fuel Pressure "Spiking @ Idle and long cruise.

Recommended Posts

New fuel pressure problems...I used to have problems with sudden pressure drops, so Installed a Raptor 100 Lift pump. It's worked quite well up until my last 300 mile trip. Now my fuel pressure spikes (up to 30 psi) on long low throttle cruising, and at idle. The electronic fuel pressure sender (Glow Shift) is isolated from the VP inlet by a 16" grease gun hose. Would this seem like enough of a "Snubber", or should I get a needle valve? A buddy of mine has a mechanical fuel pressure gauge. We'll hook it up in a few days and compare readings. I just wondered if anyone else has ever had problems with a Raptor 100 spiking. Idle fuel pressure is set at 15-17 psi.

I just received a snubber valve and sending unit from glow shift. I called them, about my gauge back and forth from 18lbs to 30. They said the snubber takes care of the different fuel pressure and that the sending unit is going out. Something about dodges, not sure why. Glow shift was very helpful. I hate to replace the sending unit, I always get diesel on me.
