The high-volume fuel pump module that will be used on the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is available now from Chevrolet Performance, enabling tuners to use a crucial, factory-engineered component to help build their own high-performance Camaro.
The Camaro ZL1 will feature the LSA 6.2L supercharged engine rated at 580 horsepower.
Chevrolet Performance's ZL1 fuel pump module is a direct replacement for the in-tank fuel pump/sender assembly of 2010 and later Camaro SS models. It delivers significantly greater volume suitable for high-performance applications – including supercharged engines – eliminating the need for an aftermarket, out-of-tank fuel system to support very high horsepower levels.
The module is available under part number 19258436 and carries a suggested retail price of $420. It can also be adapted to custom aftermarket fuel tanks, for use in high-performance hot rods using a late model-type, electronically controlled fuel injection system.
“The ZL1 is the ultimate production Camaro, and Chevrolet Performance is excited to offer its high-volume fuel pump as a performance part,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.
The ZL1 fuel pump module incorporates a twin-pump design to meet the high-rpm fuel requirements of a supercharged engine. It delivers approximately 250 liters per hour at 65 psi (450 kPa) and will support engines producing up to about 600 horsepower – although its performance range with custom and modified engines is determined by factors including the air/fuel ratio, compression ratio and others.
The ZL1 pump is pulse-width modulated, directed by a fuel pump controller, for more precise fuel delivery that eliminates the need for a conventional pressure regulator.
Components of the kit include the fuel pump assembly, a fuel pump seal and instruction sheet. The factory fuel pump controller can be used with it on 2010 and later Camaros.
Does not include fuel level sender. If sender is required also order 19208722
the pump assembly is spring loaded and will fit tanks with depth from 6"-7-1/4" the lower housing diameter is 4-3/4" and the tip diameter where it fits into the tank is 6".
