    What fuel pump to buy?

    I need to get a new fuel pump. I will prob have to buy an in-tank pump and get rid of my second in-line punp that came with the super charger (there is no room with the new 9" rear).

    I would consider the Walbro, but I heard the required bucket mod could lead to problems with less than 1/4 tank of fuel. Has anyone had any luck with the Racetronix? Will the Granatelli work?

    I'm concerned about the pump output because the Vortech kit came with a second pump. Mods in sig.

    Thanks in advance for the help.
    Drag racing...just another numbers game.

    Vortech Super Charger, 9" w/4.11, 3200 Stall, BMR SFC, BMR TracPak, !MAF screen, 160 T-Stat.

    I run the racetronix kit in mine. Great kit. Mines a 98 so I don't have the bucket but I would strongly suggest going with the racetronix kit so you don't have to cut your bucket.

    Do you know what the specs are for our bandaid pump? I do not know what the requiremets are for the Vortech systems. Does your friend run a FI setup?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have ran both the single Racetronix and currently the Dual set-up. Its worth it.

    How serious is your setup? Do you think the Racetronix pump will support my application if I "go bigger"?

    Thanks for the input.

    Sounds like that may be the pump I need.
