Dual Bosch pumps.....fuel inlet options?

I currently have a a focus pump feeding my dual bosch pumps. No lean conditions at all, I'm on e85. I was just wondering if there was a better way to get fuel to them and it seems like there isn't after searching.

I don't want/like sumps because they are unreliable for a street car and with pick ups everybody complains about not being able to run the tank below 1/4-1/2 and if u do it sucks air easy. So that lead me to run my pumps the way I have them now. Intank focus pump (217lph) feeding dual Bosch 909s (510lph). Before anybody says the intank is a restriction...Bosch pumps are self priming and with no head pressure on the intank it is free spinning/free flowing.

I can't think of a better way to run them that is why I'm asking u guys. Is there a reliable intank pick up?

Well sold my 909s today and am thinking about dual walbros or a single 044 either setup will retain the intank

I ran a pickup for years and now a sump for years when I drove my car alot on the street with no issues. I ran my tank low and all that also. I only do 3k miles or so a year now on the street.
I dont know your combo, or if you have a fuel system but it seems like your on the right track. Is your car a DD?
I would do a sump'd tank and a nice pump setup!

Run it like a glens setup with 2 or 3 external pumps with a drop in insert in place of the in tank pump. I love my setup.

On any of these options it is a bad idea to run the tanks low when driving on the street due to the rate at which the fuel circulates and the heat under the hood associated with a turbo car. It can boil the fuel and cause pump issues.

Independent of sloshing, for street driving you should keep a good amount of fuel in the tank for that reason.

I also have seen some fast cars draw fuel through a drop in setup, but with the amount of money we all have into these things I think at least a Glenns Performance sleeper tank is worth the investment.

Glenn is a good guy to give advice on all sorts of fuel system related questions and has reasonably priced parts.

I run an intank pickup. I run it down to 1/4 of a tank with no problems. This is on a 900hp setup that can accelerate pretty fast.

The fuel doesn't get heated up as much as you might think. I actually datalogged the fuel temp on the return line back to the tank. The most I seen the fuel temp rise was 10* over the outside air temp. This was after driving around for 2 hrs in stop and go traffic in a VERY hot engine bay. My coolant temps usually run 200-205*. A full tank doesn't really help much with the fuel temperature.

Spoke to Magnafuel tech today and that MIGHT be the route I go cause I can run the pro tuner without a sumped tank and it is rebuildable/upgradeable. He said just mount it less than 12" above the fuel level (in my spare tire well) and have less than 3' of fuel line from the pick up to the pump. Not sure yet though thats fat money for a pump. My other option is an A1000 (its rebuildable and cheaper).

I put a fuel cooler on my car to head that off before being a problem. My underhood temps are scary from the turbo kit. In competition I start with 3/4 tank and end at 1/3 with 30 or so street miles and 3 passes.

Not the kind of thing I am interested in experimenting with.

I run an aeromotive eliminator on a Glenns sleeper tank.
