English term or phrase:Swirl pot
The swirl pot (header tank) maintains a reserve of fuel to avoid fuel starvation to the engine during cornering and acceleration. Fuel starvation can also cause damage to the pressure pump as it relies on the fuel for cooling, lubrication and speed limiting.
The swirl pot also forms a header tank for the pressure pump since the pressure pump is not capable of lifting the fuel from the tank if the tank is lower than the pump. Place the swirl pot at the same level, or higher than the pressure pump.
Si quelqu'un savait me dénicher un site français concernant les systèmes de gestion de moteur MoTec ou autres destinés à la course, je lui en serais extrêmement reconnaissante.
