About TI Automotive
1. I’m confused about the relationship between Walbro high pressure fuel pumps and TI Automotive. Can you explain?
For decades, Walbro automotive fuel pumps have been manufactured by TI Automotive.
These high pressure fuel pumps are now branded with the TI Automotive name, carrying a legacy of more than 60 years of manufacturing the most popular drop-in fuel pumps, with the same performance, quality and reliability that you have come to know and expect.
No automotive fuel pumps are manufactured under the Walbro name, effective 2015. Many people still refer to us as Walbro but TI Automotive manufacturers the high pressure fuel pumps. Any Walbro branded automotive fuel pumps you may find for sale in the market are old stock that pre-dates 2015 or is counterfeit product. However, the Walbro company still exists, and they manufacture fuel systems and carburetors for recreation, marine and lawn applications.
No. Automotive fuel pumps are no longer manufactured under the Walbro brand name. TI Automotive high pressure fuel pumps are not sold on the company website but are available from a wide range of distributors and retailers.
TI Automotive is headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan and manufactures its high pressure fuel pumps in Caro, Michigan. Our fuel pumps and modules are never manufactured by a third-party or sourced from an outside company.
High Pressure Fuel Pumps
We rate our pumps output (flow) at 40 PSI and 13.5 V which is the industry standard.
Our most popular in-tank fuel pumps will feature a max system pressure from 87 – 112 PSI. This means those pumps are capable of producing fuel flow up to that specification before engaging the over pressure relief valve.
All our pumps have an over pressure relief valve built into them as a redundant safety feature. These valves start to open between 50 – 112 PSI.
You can find the max system pressure rating data in our Technical Information portal.
Yes. Most of our pumps are capable of pushing a minimum of 60 psi. Use our easy Pick Your Horsepower tool to dial in your horsepower, fuel type, desired system running pressure and flow rate to find the right pump.
7. Where can I find performance information for TI Automotive high pressure fuel pumps? (psi, lph, gph, etc.)
You can find all performance data in our Technical Information portal including flow charts, technical articles, fuel pump drawings, installation procedures and product literature.
