What is the best way to completely run your fuel system on a modified engine? I currently run a 9lb pump with no regulator or return line. I would like to go to a 13-14 lb pump and put a bypass regulator and return line. What would you recommend as the best and most cost effecient parts to use?

KSE tandem belt drive pump. Has a built in fuel bypass which has interchangable pills to regulate pressure. It is rebuildable and has a variable pressure for use with alky. It is designed specifically for alky. It is a little expensive but works well and is dependable.

I use a KSE tandem pump. We tried to get by but the regulator that comes on it is of no use. We had to install a Barry grant regulator to make it work for our application.

We run a Ron`s belt driven fuel pump with a Barry Grant bypass works real well for us , at alot less cost.we have been running the same pump for four years and haven`t had to get it rebuilt yet .

I raced a modified for 7 years and all I ever used was a Barry Grant fuel pump for alcohol. It was the one that made up to 15 lbs pressure. I regulated it and ran the rest back to the cell. I never ever had a problem with running out of fuel or flooding. The only thing I had go wrong was the vents in the BG carb got dirty and it dripped. when I started cleaning them on a regular basis, that stoped as well. take it for what it is worth.
