I gave up with DRLA boosting. You need a big float bowl vent or a tube from the vent directly into the boosted air flow AND CB mod rings.

Is that a filter up in front of the pump?

Nothing wrong with that -8. Makes more sense to use what works with the fittings you have than beat yourself up using adaptors. Plus when you decide to build a big stroker and run E85 you might need all that volume!

I just wanted a safe and effective fuel line, since all the lines going from the front of the car to the back are full of garbage. I had to break up caked up dirt out of my throttle tube (thru the tunnel) then blow it out. Couldn’t even get a throttle cable through it. Same thing with the stock fuel line. Except it’s plugged up from front to rear still. Who knows how long it sat open to the elements before I bought it

Be watchful on the small filter if it has a nickel size screen ?, they are not big enough, plugs up quick :wink:

Thanks madmike, I’ll keep that in mind, the when I ordered the pump and filter it came with a wix filter with the push on hose fittings. I guess I could have gotten the an filter adapters, didn’t think of that

And for my next problem. The 15psi pump is too much for my regulator. Getting kind of frustrated here should I buy the CB turbo regulator for single carb?

I think I’m just going to buy the aeromotive regulator. Pulled it apart and it was canted, put it back together and it still won’t regulate. Pegs my fuel pressure gauge almost immediately. At least with the aeromotuve I’d have a bypass back to tank. I’d hate to burn up that pump deadheading it because I want to save a buck.
