I run a mallory bypass log with built in reg with a -8 pressure line and return line with a aeromotive street strip pump
that will deal with most asperated combos and will run all day
careful of the bg's and a few other big pumps as they are not descigned to run all day
also if its to be it will milk shake the fuel
aim for about 120/140 gph
return line if you can afford it
cheap log about 200 dollars from jegs
ISO

I'm Running the same pump as Iso, good pump as aeromotive parts are well engineered.
Got it from summit and was around $100 cheaper than most shops hear!
Something to think about ryan :idea:

Geez l must be running the most simple system .. out of fuel tank run old style fuel canister filter to holley Black 1/2 line up to front with a reg , no return lines. not a single issue last 2 years. Changed the old setup of twin holley blue pumps to one dirty black set up.

i always ran just a holley blue with my 308 and a reg. no logs or anything, it handled 256kw at the wheels, for about 5 years and it was a second hand pump to begin with. now i have a magnafuel pump they are heaps quieter and way under rated.

I run bosch 044 fuel pump connected to a 1.5L surge tank & fuel reg.
I use standard fuel lines from the back to front of car, -8 lines from firewall to the fuel rails - fuel supplied to back of each fuel rail & then looped between the two fuel rails at the front - I have fited a return line, but not using it currently, but i didnt really have anywhere to mount the fuel reg, so that is back next to the fuel tank in the boot now.
I'm not sure on the size of the torry standard lines, but I know the standard vt\vx commodore lines are good for double the KW, ie, safely supported a 390rwkw setup (using the bosch 044).
When you are thinking of getting fittings for your fuel setup, try speedpro in dandenong - more than half the price pirtek charge (as Pirtek source their speedflow fittings from this shop) same for fuel lines, get them from this shop, not pirtek (pirtek $73\meter, Speedpro $32\meter for braided lines).
hope this helps.
