At some point the quantity of oil required to move the piston these increased distances will exceed the high pressure oil pump's capacity, and many people with stage 2 injectors have had to change to the 1999+ hp oil pumps which have higher flow rates. A 6mm piston stroke will require 28,992 cc (7.52 gal) of oil per minute at 3,000 rpm. If anyone knows the output specs of the stock pump, please let me know.
Now comes the get in, sit down, shut up and hold on part!
In the Northern Hydraulics catalog are 13 different hydraulic pumps capable flowing over 7.5 gpm at 3,000 psi or more, with prices ranging from $137 for just a pump to $309 for one with a belt-driven electric clutch. The solution? Mount a belt-driven pump with an electric clutch on the engine with the inlet plumbed to either the oil pan or the existing high pressure pump's reservoir and the outlet plumbed into the spare ports in the cylinder head oil rails. Use a boost switch to engage the clutch, and it will only run when you need the extra oil flow. The cost? I figure under $600.
WOW! Is that killer, or what?? Makes my spine tingle! (If only my pay check could keep up with my imagination.)
