Default shopping for fuel line and fittings?

Ok I'm gonna start at the top I have a sbc with a edelbrock carb and a edelbrock victor manual fuel pump. I have just gotten a 750dp I would like to install. I now have 8AN line from the pump to the edelbrock carb. I would like to run the 8AN to a regulator then to the carb but I need a pressure guage somewhere what size line should I run to the 750dp 6AN or 8AN?? where should the guage go?? If some one has the time and knowledge let me know everything I need for this swap.

What you will need will depend on the regulator you use. And a good many regulators have a port for the gauge...

The last time I ordered from Summit they sent my stuff to the wrong address....then filed a claim with UPS trying to blame them.

It was their fault. I ordered online and made it a point to type in my address as it is now because the one they had on file was from several years ago...guess where they sent it. When I called asking where my stuff was they said it had already been delivered and that I should go to the old address and ask if they got my stuff...I said that address isn't mine and does not match my debit card address you sent it to the wrong place YOU try and collect it from them.
