I think the Phantom design with the foam baffle will also help quell the pumps sound.

You need a louder exhaust, Russ. That'll fix it!

I'm not sure without looking it up, but the pump in my Aeromotive Stealth is pretty quiet. I only ever hear it prime before start up and it's not at all loud.
I have also never had a fuel supply issue with it and I've done a few WOT blasts right up to high-gear@7K here and there. (Don't do the math! )

Wondering if when you installed if it's hard up against the tank wall somewhere causing a drumming and amplifying vibration.

It's sitting about 2mm off the floor.

Looking at a few noise tests and videos online between the two systems, the Aeromotive Stealth is definitely quieter.

I'll just have to get use to it. I'm hoping it'll change with a fuller tank.

Thanks Russ, totally forgot about this great little thread.

Where do you go to get a tank dipped? So its safe to cut and weld?
is there other options?

With the noise/performance. anyone got input on Holley Hydramat vs aeromotive phantom?

I took mine down to a radiator repair shop. Can't remember the cost, but they also did a little repair around the base of the neck where fuel would weep through.

I used to de gas them with co from a car exhaust. Put a pipe in and run it for about 15min. That was in the old super days. Not sure if ulp works the same.

Here's a video if anyone is interested in hearing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqgP-EgfYS4

Pretty disappointed. Definitely going a different route once I've got it on the road. I can clearly hear it at the end of the factory bay driveway (about 40m).

That is loud. You might need a louder exhaust.

The exhaust is currently 2 decibels under the legal max

I know it's spending more money, but perhaps consider an Aeromotive 340 pump. I imagine that it would be a direct swap with the Walbro as the Aeromotive tanks are a Tanks Inc product.
This is what I have in my Stealth tank and it is reasonably quiet. (admittedly my exhaust is loud) and it has never failed to supply the engine (710hp) with enough fuel.

It should be a direct swap. I think they're all designed off the same base so they can be direct replacements. Only differences are usually plug type, and some have offset outlets. At this point it's between the Aeromotive, and the Deatschworks DW200 pump.

Was just shown a video by a guy that had the same issue with the Walbro. Replaced it with a DW pump, and the difference is night & day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5okXrlVG90&t=47s

Huge difference.
How does the price compare?
