Bosch adds aftermarket turbine fuel pumps
Robert Bosch LLC has added original equipment platforms for its premium aftermarket turbine fuel pump modules. The Bosch Original Equipment (BOE) fuel pumps cover select passenger car (BOE-C) and truck (BOE-T) applications.
“The new Bosch OE-platform portfolio will offer service technicians the best value in the market in terms of quality, coverage and price point when replacing fuel modules for a select group of applications,” says Jarod Adams, manager product marketing, gasoline systems.
Thirty-six BOE-T part numbers will be available in the Bosch fourth quarter 2014 catalog. The BOE-C platform is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2015, for a total of over 40 new BOE fuel pump modules in both platforms.
These fuel pump module assemblies are designed to fit late-model domestic vehicles, including, 2010-2012 Chevrolet Express/GMC Savana 1500 and 2500, 2009-2011 Chevrolet Colorado/Canyon, 2009-2012 Ford Escape/Mercury Mariner and more.
Adams says the design and electromagnetic shielding of the fuel pumps virtually eliminate fuel pulsation and noise, reduce hot start problems and prevent onboard electronics interference. “In addition, the core components of the turbine design never come in contact with one another, significantly reducing wear and delivering a longer service life,” he says.
