Edelbrock Universal EFI Sump Fuel Kit
Edelbrock’s new kit is designed to provide the fuel pressure required to run EFI in vehicles originally equipped with a low-pressure carbureted fuel system. The self-contained system is engineered for easy installation under the hood of any vehicle. Edelbrock delivers a constant fuel pressure without requiring a fuel return line. The existing fuel tank and low-pressure pump can be retained. The goal is to eliminate fuel starvation caused by low fuel level in a nonbaffled tank. Two versions are available: 58 psi and 49 psi. Each kit includes the fuel sump tank with high-pressure pump and regulator preinstalled, wiring harness, mounting bracket, hose, fittings, and all necessary hardware.

Models are the 10-watt Discovery (1,000 rated lumens per LED), 3-watt/double-row Endeavour, and slim-bodied Atlantis. Options include tube clamps and strobing for EMS applications.
