  • Squeal under heavy load.

    New Sniper setup in my 427 Cobra. Idles fast, but otherwise runs good. I do notice a loud squeal coming from the 19-350 fuel pump area under heavy acceleration, goes away when I let off the pedal. Is this normal for a fuel pump or what's going on?

    An EFI fuel system needs two filters:
    Before fuel pump - 100 micron pre-filter. (Or the OEM in-tank sock filter.)
    After fuel pump - 10 micron post-filter. (40 micron is for carburetion.)
    The 40 micron (carburetor) fuel filter has no place on an EFI fuel system. (I know you're not using it.)
    It's too "fine" of a filter to be used before the pump, causing fuel pump cavitation.
    FYI: The sock filter (HydraMat or OEM) of an in-tank fuel pump, is the pre-filter. Don't add another one.

      So I have the proper pre & post filter setup. It has a 100 micron in the tank and a 10 micron (162-554) before the EFI unit. The fuel lines are mostly hard copper/nickel with braided stainless to connect the ends. The fuel pump is connected to a short run of braided stainless that connects to hard copper/nickel. The first three feet of the hard copper nickel has several 90 bends in it that work around frame rails. It was bent with a tubing bender so there’s nothing that has an acute angle, but it still is several 90 bends. I wonder if this is causing the problem?

        I doubt it, especially after the fuel pump. Refer back to post #2 above (there's more to check).
