    I know guys that run Holley blues and blacks with no problem. My advice would be a Magna Fuel 400 or 500 pump. run #10 to the pump, #8 to your regulator, and #6 to the carb. Magna Fuel also has a good billet regulator for around $120.00. I know this way would be no worries!!

    You need an Enderle 110 pump that pumps 9.8 gpm or a hilborn -2 which pumps about the same.If you were running gas you could get away with a enderle 80A-1 pump or a hilborn -1 that pumps 6.8 gpm, also with a min. #12, preferrable #14 feed line to the pump and #8 to the injection. You will also have to have a front mounted tank. I run a 3 gal tank, but only run 1/8 mile and drive to the starting line and back to the pits, I use a little less than 2 gal. You may need a bigger tank or tow the car if you plan to run 1/4 mile. But if you plan to run the 1/4 mile i think you'll have to come down on the gear to a 4.10.

    If you are going to buy a new one don't let someone talk you into a 990 pump that pumps about 13.8 GPM, it's over kill and a waste of $$$$ unless you plan to add a little or lot of nitro.
