    Nice install Fastymz .ETs will be dropping
    One thing is the placement of the fuel filter.It should be before the pump to keep dirt and junk getting into the pump.
    Also you might want to run a return line back to the tank ,that will help with adjusting and keeping your fuel pressure steady instead of deadheading it.I also have been looking into running nos and the nos companies that I spoke with like a return line for the fuel when running nos .They say it helps keep air bubbles getting into the line which is no good and could spell disaster and you dont want any fluctuation of the fuel pressure.

      I do plan on adding a filter before the pump.

      Edelbrock calls for 6-7 psi at the solenoid, the I only had to reset the regulator twice once after initial start up and once after the first few times I tested the system. Since then I have ran the car twice to test a few other things and the pressure seems to be holding between 6.5-7 psi so far that is

        Fastymz - I am getting ready to install my electric fuel pump and sumped tank. Thanks for posting those pics. It really helps out for my install.

        Question for you...where are you powering your pump from? And are you using a toggle switch to turn it on/off?

          I used a painless wiring 30amp relay kit powered from a switch on the dash. I ran the switch activation wire from a keyed source so the pump will not come unless the key is turned on.

              Looks great...

              Good looking install. I have been contemplating the giggle gas for a while for the ranchero. I wouldn't be able to wait to get that bottle filled, for "testing" purposes only of course.

                Trust me if it wasn't lack of funds $$$ that bottle would have been be filled a long time ago! I can't wait to do some "TESTING" with the bottle.

                  Took the car out for much longer ride today. I can really feel a difference with the sub frame connectors installed. The ride is more solid and the front end comes up even higher now.
                  Besides some more tunning work to get done yet. I'm real happy with all the upgrades.
                  The top end seems a little stronger with the addition of the electric fuel pump but that might just be wishful thinking.
