I had terrible luck with mine. Long story...but the short version is, the first did not pump fuel right out of the box, sent it back and they sent a different one, with this one, the car would not idle at all, fuel pressure was so erractic , it broke the needle on 2 Auto meter guages, on the gas it would pop and miss, this is after following all instructions to the T, numerous phone calls etc. I got my money back, but it still cost me the 2 fuel pressure guages, and a whole bunch of fittings and hose, not to mention several wasted nites at the race track. Belt drive now, I will never again do "R & D" on a new product.

Thanks for the info,
We run the procam machanical pump and we were looking at getting a belt drive but I was just wondering about that one.
What belt drive do you run

www.BLP.COM
it worked great, I adjusted the pressure one time all weekend, it was close outta the box, I bought the internal bypass model, i just found out that a fellow competitor also tried the racepump from stewart and he melted down a motor because of the erractic fuel pressure, these were both on alky, i think the guys on gas have better luck with them.......
