jthorson I bought the same Blue Chip Diesel pump you are looking at in 2014 for $2150.00. It is a great pump! I also added a Raptor lift pump and Bosch BOS-0432-193-635 injectors. This combination really woke this engine up. You'll LOVE that pump. I've got a little over 50,000 miles on mine so far with no problems.

yukonjackman Im running a pump with a 3 year warranty but i also invested with a long block, exhaust, fass pump, and a bit more , my truck is a 2001 2500 diesel 4x4, no rust and i love it for towing , every thing that you are doing to your truck depends on how you like it.

Z_Cummins59 Do you happen to know of anyone else running one?
08-25-2019 04:31 PM
ArNy32 First for the record yes there really was a tootsie roll in there.iam also running a airdog fp-100,iam sure any vp will do just fine but just for me knowing any issue's with the vp's design got all the updated parts and some new parts was worth it.

Thanks for the reply! A tootsie roll LOL that made laugh! But for serious did they really? Some humor out of a company like that on top of a 3 year warranty is almost priceless Was starting to think no one had even bothered with it. Its good to hear you got 80k on one. Of coarse a good "regular" one could possibly do that but being they do some "tinkering" had me worried of the quality of putting back together vs just replacing a computer.. Are you running a fass/airdog or any AM lift pump?

So been doing some research on vp44s and who builds them, what they do, the whole Fedex thing, etc...

Seems like all the info i find is on the basic "rebuild" with a 1 year warranty. However I see on their website they have The Best rebuild option. For a whopping $2800 bucks with a 3 year warranty they claim to have a new computer, steel bushed sleeve, piston and diaphram, etc..

My question is has anyone ever actually dished out the cash for one of these pumps? I get that for the 3000 bucks most would see it as use the cash for a p-pump but im looking for more info to understand if the price tag is just for the exteneded warranty or if there is actually something better that's been done to these pumps.. Im not looking to p-pump my truck and my current (what i assume is) original vp44 is doing alright with 198,xxx on the clock. Definitely want to change it out before it decides to give me problems and it wont be accepted as a core. Im a fan of "pay for what you get" so if paying $2800 will get me a pump that is so to say "more reliable" "offers better performance/economy" and a 3 year unlimited mile warranty I wouldn't mind dishing out the cash. But if its just "advertisement BS" then i feel they shouldnt even list something like that..


Anyhow.. Any opinions or replies from anyone that has dealt with one of these pumps or has some more insight than i do would be greatly appreciated!

Z_Cummins59 Hmmm. Interesting! Im not looking for fuel only numbers (I shouldve made that clear, My Bad) the way I see it pushing the vp44 for 700+ on fuel alone is begging it to fail especially for a DD (not saying it wont fail anyways) but If i can save some strain on the vp at around 600-650 thats plenty for cruising(who am i kidding i haul ) down the road and hauling 30k+ GCVW. With a shot of meth or n2o to take me past 700/750 is perfect for the occasoinal (often but not always) urge to have just that much more!
08-25-2019 03:00 PM
Silvergorilla With the right injectors, air, and big shot you could do 750 on a so vp. If you want that number on fuel I'd say get a hot rod or monster pump. I'd cut the pistons n skip the coating. burns off anyways. Could do your numbers on stock pistons and rods and it live at that for awhile
08-25-2019 12:25 PM
Z_Cummins59 And of coarse all other supporting mods.. Push rods, connecting rods, coated pistons, new crank and balance everything, 12mm girddle, head studs, fire rings, etc..

Z_Cummins59 Ive got water/meth now so im expecting that to bump the numbers up. Ive debated on adding some n2o and im om the fence. Would be nice and setting up aint that pricey but I like the convenience of my water/meth. What you think of getting 750 out of an so vp44 with water/meth or n2o? Doing some searching and asking around im planning on running a 20 over bored block/piston +275s on a milled ported/polished intake/exhaust head with a 62/75 or 78 compound setup with water/meth or n2o. Gonna add a Quadzilla to the mix. Definitely gonna put a cam/springs and change up the rocker arms but not decided on that part yet..

Silvergorilla With big injectors and air a so vp will do 650. Little shot of Some giggle gas will do more unless you want to stay fuel only.
