Kugelfischer Mechanical Fuel Injection for Ferrari 308 V8
Kugelfischer Mechanical Fuel Injection for Ferrari and some other Italian V8 cars.
This used Kugelfischer unit was used on a Ferrari 308 GTB Group IV. These same units you find on other 308 Rally cars and the Ferrari 308 GT/M
We had two original units for sale. One is now fitted on an original 308 GTB/M Group IV and still have one in stock. Soon we have remanufactured units on sale.
Kugelfischer is the name for a mechanical fuel injection (MFI) pump. Derived from diesel pumps from the early 1960s, the Kugelfischer system was the most widely-adopted mechanical injection pump for performance vehicles. It was among the first units with manufacturer-customizable fuel delivery maps which used rpm, throttle position, temperature, and sometimes barometric pressure as inputs. This was accomplished mechanically, not electronically.
In the late ’60s and early ’70s, it was fitted to a variety of production vehicles from BMW, Ford UK, Lancia, Peugeot, and others. It is perhaps best known for its use by BMW in the 2000tii/2002tii (and later, the 2002 Turbo) performance sedan from 1970-1975, the 1964-1976 Porsche 911/911S/Carrera RS/RSR/Carrera MFI, and the BMW M1 supercar from 1978-1981. Due to high manufacturing cost however, it became economically undesirable with the introduction of cheaper electronic engine management systems (and continuous-injection mechanical systems) by the end of the decade. However, the Kugelfischer system continued to be used as a specialty injection pump for purpose-built race engines into the ’80s such as the 1982 Porsche 911 SC/RS.
Today, the Kugelfischer pumps are prized pieces. Due to limited parts availability, reconditioning them properly can cost several thousand dollars and should only be performed by highly qualified individuals who are well-oriented in custom engine development.
We can also supply the 4- and 6 cylinder units.
