Among the trends that have been colliding in the performance aftermarket recently are the trend away from in-line pumps and toward fitting pumps in the fuel tank, where we believe the best place for a pump is, and the ever-present trend of making more and more power (1000+ hp builds are becoming commonplace). These two trends have been driving multi-pump in-tank hangars. It’s not uncommon to see three or even four in-tank pumps in today’s high-power builds. The OE module they replace does a lot more than just fit a pump in a tank. It offers filtration, fuel level sending, saddle tank fuel transfer and surge tank functions, which allows use of a user’s last 1/8 tank of gas, even in high G cornering or acceleration. The pump hangars on the market today delete many, if not all, of these functions.
Luckily, there has been another trend in the market, and that is higher flowing in-tank pumps that maintain flow at higher pressures where users most need it, such as the DW400. DeatschWerks has taken advantage of all of these trends coming together, and the Ford Mustang community is the recipient of the efforts. By taking advantage of the new generation of pumps, users can now use dual pump modules where they used to need triple pump setups. Reducing the number of pumps from 3 to 2 allows room in the module to retain OE features.
The new DeatschWerks X2-Series Mustang Module is now available for the 2011-2019 model years, which includes accommodation for two pumps (39mm or 46mm diameter pumps), integration of a return fuel line, and retention of all of the functionality of the OE module. The DW X2-Series Mustang Module consists of a top-hat, center section and OE lower bucket. These three components work together to deliver the flow users need and the OE functionality users want.
The top-hat section is made of anodized T6061 Aluminum and has a -10AN feed and -6AN return. A set of M5 stainless bulkhead wiring studs ensure pumps get all the current they need to maximize flow. There are also electrical bulkhead connections for the fuel level sending unit. And, the top-hat fits the OE module retaining ring with enough clearance for all wiring and fuel lines.
The center section is anodized DW orange and is specially designed to fit both 2011-14 and 2015-19 Mustang lower buckets. The o-ring friction fit provides a secure fitment of 46mm fuel pumps (i.e. DW400), and an adapter insert is provided to fit standard 39mm fuel pumps as well (i.e. DW300 and others). Fuel pump spacing in the center section also allows fitment of 55mm bell-bottom fuel pumps. The module is available in two different PN’s: 9-401-7030 includes dual DW400’s which combine to flow in excess of 800LPH to support more than 1500HP and PN 9-000-7030 which is a lower-priced option and allows a BYOP approach (bring your own pumps) by including the adapter for 39mm and 46mm pumps.
The customer’s OE lower bucket is retained in the X2-Series module and is easily installed onto the DW center section without any cutting or modifications, allowing a full return to stock later, if needed. By combining the DW top hat and center section with the OE lower bucket, all OE functionality is retained so customers can confidently send-it at fuel levels of 1/8 tank and beyond.
The X2-Series module is for use in return-style fuel systems only. Therefore, plumbing in return lines, regulators, filters, etc. is a requirement. To make this process as easy as possible, DW has created four different plumbing kit options that include everything needed for a full return fuel system customized to the user’s needs. The plumbing kits are available in -8 or -10 feeds and with CPE hose or PTFE hose.
