Default stage 2 LPFP bucket vs bucket-less - 09-26-2017, 04:20 PM

So im looking to get a new lpfp. I'm just not sure which one to get. My mods are in my signature. I also want something that is kind of future proof if I decide to get pure stage 2's, not sure yet. How much more power could I expect with an upgraded lpfp but a stock hpfp? Bucket-less vs bucket? Any info would be great, Thanks!

I'll let Steve take it from here, updated to say I tested with the stock filter and didn't see a drop in performance.

I'd never trade the bucket. Stg2 now and upgrade to a 3/4 later if you really need it. Never worth risking starvation IMO.

About 95% of our customers use the standard filter with their Stage 2 bucketless upgrade. Less than 5% of those that don't upgrade their filter initially contact us about upgrading the filter at a later date.

Frankly, most don't need it and in our development cars, we don't run upgraded filters. We did for testing purposes but would rather run our cars how the majority of customers run them and test regularly under various conditions.

For future upgrade-ability, Stage 2 bucketless is as much or more than most will need but should then need to, they can upgrade to stage 3 or stage 4 with our add-on options at any time.

As many have seen, we've done quite a few acceleration tests under low fuel conditions.

I made 650whp with my bucketed stage 2 on E54 and a single turbo. It was maxed. Twins generally require more fuel also. Hopefully this help you decide.

Good to know if I add stage three, those freaking hydramats are expensive as hell, haha.
