second that
but if you plan to go faster then build fuel system once to suit what you want to do later.

Carter black for me, awesome pump. I ran this pump with both my Quaddy and my Demon. Cheaper and quieter than Holley's.

PS. Electric pumps like the Carter MUST be gravity fed - mount them nice and low, therefore boot mounting is a very bad idea, unless there's a separate lift pump (or if you're running a fuel cell in the boot).

Agree with Iso, I did my Fuel setup twice on the Monaro so do it right the first time and try not to go on the Cheep, get the right pump and line size to suit your application and for more HP down the track! Mine is rated max around 14-15psi pleaty for what I need unless going EFI of course. Try and mount your pump lower than your pickup, if going bigger lines, pump ect have a decent vent size as a build up of pressure can happen in the tank and fuel will start to foam. You going dead head style or with a bypass Ryan?

Hey Charlie, are you running dead head or bypass? I've always run dead head but keen to change to a full bypass/return style. Always interested to hear the details of different setups.

Brett, I'm running "dead head" with -10 from tank picup to pump then -8 braded fuel line from pump outlet to the reg then -6 to carb, works fine no problems at all. If your dead head set up is working good leave it! No real need to run a return, unless you start incounting some problems but with running a bypass setup fuel is cooler and pump not running as hard, with any trapped air more easy to escape. Lots of high powered drag cars are running a bypass return style but for the street i reckon dead head is fine. ;)
