After hundreds of hours of design, engineering & real-world testing, we are proud to announce the FS1000 drop-in billet surge tank and fuel system upgrade for the Chevrolet SS (2012-2015) which now offers surge protection right down to 5% fuel tank capacity and eliminates the requirement or need for an external surge tank for street & track driven applications.
The FS1000 Surge Tank for Chevrolet SS (2012-2015) is a complete OEM/Factory Fuel Pump Assembly replacement, featuring an integrated venturi vacuum pump and active valve system (AVS).
This system is intended to run two Walbro fuel pumps. If you only require one fuel pump, please check "Add Block Off Plate" to convert manifold for single pump use. See Power Table to confirm Fuel Pump quantity needs for desired Horsepower.
Requires Camaro ZL1 fuel level sender & calibration NOT PROVIDED - Fuel Gauge Sending Unit GM PART NO# 13592329
Wiring harness NOT provided and MUST be wired by professional & certified automotive electrician
Wiring Recommendation (high-level based on anticipated high current draw applications):
Single Pump: 10 AWG Tefzel Mil-spec wire (50A relay)
REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL TUNE & MAY ALSO REQUIRE BY-PASS OF ECU FACTORY FUEL PUMP SETTINGS
SPECIFICATIONS & FEATURES
Bulkhead Design: We've eliminated the need for 90 degree external fuel hose adapter fittings and simply incorporated a 90 degree thread profile for the Supply & Return ports directly into the bulkhead.
ACTIVE Valve System: The FS1000 surge tank features not only 100% larger fuel floater valves over the OEM fuel pump module but our proprietary Active Valve System; 4 valves versus the 1 valve included in the OEM design). The AVS is engineered to close and trap fuel under acceleration, cornering and breaking. The valves then open when load is reduced to allow fuel to rapidly refill the surge tank 900% quicker than the OEM system.
Venturi Vacuum Pump: The FS1000 surge tank also features an internal venturi vacuum pump. Developed in-house using leading CFD modeling software and techniques (200 data points, 250 man hours and 90 hours of continuous simulation), the FS1000 Venturi Vacuum Pump requires no wiring, draws no current yet is able to generate enough vacuum to pull through, using a fitting located on the lowest point of the surge tank, more than 200 litres per hour of fuel into the surge which will ensure that the fuel pumps are submerged at all times and there is no possibility of fuel starvation or fuel surge.
Plug & Play: While the FS1000 surge tank isn't "Plug & Play" per se, the installation can be completed in a mater of hours and will depend on whether the fuel system is setup as a return or non-return system. Also requires custom wiring harness not provided.
Do I Need to Upgrade The Fuel Lines, Fuel Pressure Regulator or Fuel Rail ?
a) Fuel Lines: Return System: We recommend a return style system with a 1:1 rising rate fuel pressure regulator located in the engine bay on the return fuel line - The factory fuel supply is sufficient to support the flow & output of the compatible fuel pumps HOWEVER the fuel rail MUST be upgraded and a return fuel line installed (-6AN return line recommended).
b) Fuel Rail: Return System: Yes, the factory fuel rail MUST be upgraded.
c) Fuel Pressure Regulator: Yes -The OEM fuel regulator is far too small and must be upgraded.

Quality & Engineering
90% of the components are precision machined from aerospace grade 6061-T6 billet aluminum
The lightweight fuel bucket is designed using best practice engineering principles and stress tested to ensure safety for all motorsport applications. Due to the complexity and the high degree of engineering involved, the lower section of the surge tank is injection moulded with a proprietary super thick, durable and super strong composite fuel (unleaded, race, ethanol) resistance grade of aerospace plastic used by only the most advanced super car manufacturers
Floater valves designs to trap fuel in the fuel bucket
Venturi (pump) tube engineered specifically for the GM models
Package includes the following items:
FS1000 bulkhead (machined from aircraft grade 6061-T6 billet aluminum)
Billet two (2) piece fuel bucket (upper section machined from 6061-T6 grade billet aluminum, lower section injection moulded)
Bucket (POM) bottom plate with four (4) injection moulded (POM) floater valves
Viton rubber o-rings included
Fueled By AI 6-way male electrical connector with two (2) female connectors and 12 pins
Two (2) Stainless Steel Fuel Filters for Walbro pumps (200 micron).
