The hottest trend in hot rods and muscle cars today is late model EFI engine swaps and aftermarket EFI systems. It’s no secret why either; you can make ridiculous power and do it more affordably than ever. What makes these conversions so affordable is the ample supply of parts and kits from the aftermarket. But until now, the fuel system has been a costly and time-consuming upgrade.
The Phantom solves all your problems by focusing on three main ideas. First being a sump. This innovative foam and rubber baffle creates a sump in your existing fuel tank, providing a constant fuel supply around your pump, even under heavy cornering. Second being a billet top hat, featuring three ORB-6 ports. With an adjustable bracket, the pump can be hung at optimal height for any gas tank. Lastly moving the electric pump into the gas tank. This allows the pump to stay quiet and cool, extending life and improving performance.
Block mount pumps aren’t an option on today’s engines. Carbureted pumps are not going to work with EFI and the tanks in these cars are not designed for EFI pumps. What do you do? Go to a fuel cell… Weld in a big sump on your tank… fabricate a custom tank? While all of these are options that will work, they can be very expensive, require a lot of work and may just not be what you want.
Well, Aeromotive has completely changed the game again with their newest addition to the Stealth Fuel System line-up. The Phantom Fuel System is a complete kit that gives you everything you need to install a fuel pump and baffle / basket into almost ANY fuel tank. It’s like putting the fuel system from a new Corvette into your muscle car or street rod. You can choose from two different pump options, an in-tank 340 Stealth Fuel Pump capable of up 800 hp EFI or a smaller Stealth 200 Fuel Pump capable of supporting up 550 hp EFI. Both options can handle serious power even at supercharged or tubrocharged EFI pressures. With the Phantom Systems you also get a black anodized hanger assembly and an internal baffle to control fuel slosh and keep the fuel pump submerged. The best part, this entire system is modular. It can be cut to height to fit almost any tank including your stock tank, even tanks as shallow as 6” deep.
Why is in-tank better?
Think about it. When is the last time you saw a vehicle come from the OE’s that had an externally mounted fuel pump? By putting the pump in the tank, you virtually eliminate hot fuel handling issues like cavitation and vapor lock because the pump is constantly submerged, taking advantage of a column height of fuel on the inlet of the pump. And, because of the innovative baffle or basket, you can control fuel slosh keeping fuel at the pickup point (the pump) at all times; even with low fuel levels and in extreme driving conditions.

“I quit driving the truck. It was such a pain and I didn’t want to end up sitting on the side of the road. One call to Aeromotive and one part number later, I can drive this thing anywhere. I’m really having fun with the truck now, and that is what it was built for.”
