when looking for a pump make sure it is rated for street duty. I have a holly black on mine and have not had any problems with it. I do run a seperate pump for nitrous. Just make sure your pump can handle the amount of horsepower you are feeding. Knowing what I know now I would go with one big fuel pump and not look back.

you have to ask yourself a few questions first.

How much HP, what fuel, what battery voltage, what base fuel pressure.

after you answer a few questions you can narrow down the fuel pump you need and then get a pump that can last street and race use.

Weldon -- 600-A for up to 800 hp with carbs and 600+ hp FI or the new 1100-A for up to 1400 hp carb'd and 1200 hp FI. They basically have fuel pumps to feed anything from 300 to 3000 hp.
