    THE VETTE BREATHES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    FIRED THE VETTE TONIGHT !!!!!!!.......

    632ci BIG CHIEF,Donovan aluminum block,EPD SHEET METAL INTAKE with a pair of Chuck N 1200 Dominaters....
    breathing thru a set of 2-1/2 stepped to 2-3/8 headers with 5 inch collectors ( NO MUFFLERS)...ON JACK STANDS..
    IT RATTLED THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS HOUSE (600FT AWAY)

    Only problem i had was the ever so famous BARRY GRANT pump leaked (poured) at the O-RING BASE..( I HATE BARRY GRANT PUMPS)


    Anyone know where i can buy one of these O-RING KITS for the BG 400 ????.



    over look me i am excited..this has been long awaited..much blood sweat tears and money spent to get to this point..

    o ring

    Hey Brian check ad #1017533 for the o-ring kit.I personally ordered a o-ring kit from this guy and was a quick turnaround.My Barry Grant pump has leaked after it has sit for the winter but seems if you run it it ends up sealing back up.I still have not put the new o-ring kit in mine but i have it if it doesn't seal this time.Good luck.

    yes if this was a tiny leak i would try it ..but it is pouring..the pump has not been run in 4 or 5 years or longer..it pushes the fuel fine just leaks like a pale of water..
    i am a magnafuel guy but going to use the BG400 cause i got it already
    DISCLAIMER: ( bg400 pump came with car..I DID NOT BUY IT... :P )



    Thanks Tom and Lanham.


    i am so excited i could just take a big shot of 151 if i still drank..lol

    Good news Brian. Have you looked at an aeromotive pump? I go through APD and they are great. I use my Aeromotive 2000 with an aeromotive by-pass regulator instead of by-passing at the pump.

    Yes i have owned an Aeromotive 2000 in the past....I am a die hard Magnafuel Pump Guy......if i had to change it would be the Magnafuel Prostar 500..i run this pump on my 67 camaro..I love it...

    Reason i am staying with the BG400 is because it came with car and it will serve the purpose....i really do not like the idea of having to spend extra $500 right now for something i want instead of need..

    i will say the Aeromative is a good pump and would be my 2nd choice of fuel pumps.

    thanks brian

    Dude I am glad to see you got it running and can't wait to see what its going to run. If it runs as good as it looks then you will get it in the 4's after a few passes. Have fun with it and good luck.
