C63 / GLC63 AMG [M177] Spool FX-180 upgraded high pressure pump kit
What is the FX-180?
The FX-180 is an upgraded high-pressure fuel pump. The pump features a bigger bore size than stock that translates into roughly 80% more flow when compared to stock. The pump is completely E85 compatible and fully plug and play with no cutting or splicing of any kind required. The added flow will let you run much higher ethanol concentrations and also allow fueling for bigger turbos. The pumps are also capable of running higher than stock pressures upto 240bar which increases fuel injector output and also reduced injection time.

Are tune changes required?
The upgraded pumps do require calibration changes. It is important to apply these changes prior to starting the car with pumps installed to avoid any possible damage and void of warranty.
Spool Performance can provide calibration details to your existing tuner and/or help you connect with established tuners who are experienced with these pumps. Custom tuning is required to get maximum output out of the upgraded pump setup for your specific vehicle setup and ambient conditions. Spool Performance is a hardware manufacturer and does not provide custom tunes, but can assist with questions your tuner may have.
Low Pressure Fuel Pump Upgrade:
Proper low pressure fueling is extremely important for proper functioning and durability of the high pressure pumps and injectors in a DI system. Inadequate low pressure fueling can cause damage to the pump piston and bore as they are lubricated by controlled leakage of fuel. Resulting damage from low pressure starvation is detectable and would be cause for voided warranties. Please make sure you plan out your fuel system build with proper low pressure upgrades when necessary.
