Video: DeatschWerks DWR2000 Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator

When you need to build massive horsepower, and in today’s terms where no one bats an eye at anything under 1,000 horsepower, that means outputting north of the “grand.” If you’re a serious drag racer, standing mile, land speed or other speed junkie of the sort, chances are you are building a powerplant to approach 2,000 horsepower–and DeatschWerks is no stranger to high-horsepower fuel requirements.

Of course engine components have to be built stout to withstand the pressures, temperatures and speeds of that kind of demand, but so does your plumbing. Of course cooling, and oil need to need  be sorted out to ensure a reasonable lifespan between rebuilds for such a high strung engine, but your fuel system is one of the first lines of plumbing you need to address to meet a gigantic power goal.

DeatschWerksDeatschWerks (DW) has been there for builders with a need to flow huge amounts of fuel to feed their machines. Having released the DWR1000 in 2016, DW has upped the ante for 2017 with the DWR2000 – a fuel pressure regulator capable of controlling fuel up to 2,000 horsepower.

With modern fuel blends and the popularity of E85, DW has ensured material compatibility in their new design, no more brass internals to corrode or rubber to deteriorate.

Often times when you’re on the cutting edge of your field building engines or racecars you have brand loyalties, and want to display you preferences, whether for contingency money or just pride. To serve this, DW is offering a limited run of DWR2000 fuel pressure regulators in their classic orange anodizing. But if you want one, you’re going to have to move quick. The signature orange is only available for a limited time.
