Aeromotive: Fuel Regulators

Product Image
Edited: Jan 08, 2017

Product Information:

Aeromotive's performance EFI regulator is designed for medium to high horsepower applications. This regulator features Aeromotive's high-flow design, superb pressure control and legendary durability. On the street and at the track, this pressure regulator has logged more miles, laps and passes than any other performance EFI regulator in the world!

Aeromotive's popular 13109 fuel pressure regulator is also the most common counterfeit in the Aeromotive product line. Counterfeiters have even laser-etched the Aeromotive logo on the counterfeit product to further deceive you. Placed side by side, the two products are hard to tell apart externally.

The genuine Aeromotive fuel regulator has stainless steel screws, brass vacuum port barb fittings and a brass gauge-port fitting. You can easily test for brass and stainless fittings with a magnet.

Poorly machined O-ring bosses on the counterfeit fuel regulator are leak-prone. Other counterfeit clues are a poor finish, including machine-marks, imperfections, and other inconsistencies.
