The hottest trend in hot rods and muscle cars today is late model EFI engine swaps and aftermarket EFI systems. It’s no secret why either; you can make ridiculous power and do it more affordably than ever. What makes these conversions so affordable is the ample supply of parts and kits from the aftermarket. But until now, the fuel system has been a costly and time-consuming upgrade.
Block mount pumps aren’t an option on today’s engines. Carbureted pumps are not going to work with EFI and the tanks in these cars are not designed for EFI pumps. What do you do? Go to a fuel cell… Weld in a big sump on your tank… fabricate a custom tank? While all of these are options that will work, they can be very expensive, require a lot of work and may just not be what you want.
Well, Aeromotive has completely changed the game again with their newest addition to the Stealth Fuel System line-up. The Phantom Fuel System is a complete kit that gives you everything you need to install a fuel pump and baffle / basket into almost ANY fuel tank. It’s like putting the fuel system from a new Corvette into your muscle car or street rod. You get an in-tank 340 Stealth Fuel Pump capable of handling serious power even at EFI pressures, a black anodized hanger assembly and an internal baffle to control fuel slosh and keep the fuel pump submerged. The best part, this entire system is modular. It can be cut to height to fit almost any tank including your stock tank, even tanks as shallow as 6” deep.
Why is in-tank better?
Think about it. When is the last time you saw a vehicle come from the OE’s that had an externally mounted fuel pump? By putting the pump in the tank, you virtually eliminate hot fuel handling issues like cavitation and vapor lock because the pump is constantly submerged, taking advantage of a column height of fuel on the inlet of the pump. And, because of the innovative baffle or basket, you can control fuel slosh keeping fuel at the pickup point (the pump) at all times; even with low fuel levels and in extreme driving conditions.
So, whether you are restoring a muscle car, building a street rod or prepping a pro-touring machine, the Phantom fuel system might just be the option for you. EFI or carbureted, this system can go either way and allows you to switch to one or the other down the road with nothing more than a regulator swap. Use your factory tank or a reproduction to keep that stock look and to keep cost down, but get the performance you demand and your engine needs. No more welding sumps, no more noisy fuel pumps or fuel cells taking up your trunk space. The Phantom Fuel System in virtually invisible and whisper quiet. Serious performance you’ll never know is there!
