What sets the Nostrum EA888 Standard Bore pump kit apart:
  • CFD Optimized 
  • E-85 Compatible 
  • Fully welded construction 
  • All Stainless Steel 

Nostrum’s Standard Bore HPFP for the Gen 1-2 EA888 found in the MK6 Golf GTI is capable of flowing 36% more fuel than the factory fuel pump. This is perfect for anyone who is looking to get the most out of their stock turbo with minor bolt-ons, or run pump E85! Nostrum HPFPs increase the capacity of your fuel system and ensures you are getting the most out of your fuel system components. Nostrum HPFP kits feature a larger piston diameter than stock, a premium welded construction, and several in-house components. Nostrum HPFP kits are designed in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and optimized using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to ensure you have the highest performing product on the market.

Frequently ask questions:

Q: Why do your numbers say I will make less horsepower on E85 than 93 octane? 

A: Great question! The numbers we list in the product descriptions are similar to the numbers a turbo charger lists for air flow. The numbers are the "fuel system capacity to generate power" regardless of the other engine system limitations (air handling, mechanical limitations, knock propensity). Essentially the numbers are calculated assuming "sufficiently large air flow", "sufficiently capable mechanical assemblies" and disregarding knock limits. The equation uses actual observed engine volumetric efficiency (when available from sponsorship vehicles) and fuel capacity (including target pressures) to calculate power. Gasoline has more energy per mass volume than E85. So the higher fuel flow capacity will mathematically generate higher power potential for a gasoline than a high ethanol content fuel. The other variables (air flow, spark, rotating assembly strength, charge cooling, mechanical assembly strength) are highly variable from build to build. This is why we state horsepower capacity for the fuel system – representing the potential of the fuel system if you have all the other aspects of your build addressed!  

Q: What do I upgrade first? My low pressure pump, my high pressure pump, or my injectors?

A: Fundamentally we have to look at the entire fueling system and "where" in the rpm range the limits are. DI fuel systems in stock trim are often pump limited at middle rpm (peak torque) and injector limited at high rpm (peak power). This is due to engine speed. HPFPs are mechanically driven pumps (driven by the camshaft pump lobe spinning at ½ crank speed) and are RPM (engine speed) dependent. Many of the quoted flow increases in the aftermarket are purely displacement based comparisons: where by example the big bore pump has a piston diameter X% larger than the "stock" pump or the swept displacement ((3.14*(radius)^2)*(stroke))of the pump Y% larger than the stock pump. The larger displacement of the pump really shines in low rpm, where the fuel injector has plenty of time (crank angle degrees) to inject fuel. As the engines starts to approach peak power the engine speed starts to become quite short and is limiting the injection duration (crank angle degrees) for the injection event (which is another reason why we like to increase fuel pressure up high!).
