If you have the fuel pump in the gas tank Im' not shore of the psi but you can put a fule pump regulator for a bout $40.00 or take the pump out of the tank and put in a in line ,like a carter with a 7psi that would do you just fine, on the street you would wont to run no les then 4.5 psi at 72,gph. hope that helps.

GM TBI pumps generally run at much lower pressures than multi-port systems, usually around 13psi which is more than you want to use with a carb.

Put it some where you can get to easely,like the fire wall.buy it new it will come with step by step how to shet and at the fuel inlet on the carb mont a psi gage they are $10 to $20 bucks, so you can dile it in nothing to it,But if it was me I put a new fule pump on and get rid of that one in the tank,if its worth doing do it right! you dont wont a gas fire they suck! hope this helps,

So if i put a new fuel pump in whats the easy way of doing it? Can I just take out the pump and extend it like with metal fuel line in the tank where it sets as the fuel pump did.Then run an inline or a mech one? Which would you all prefer.

On my sons S-10 we pulled the bed off to get to the tank thats' the easy way to do it to pull the tank off can be a rele pane in the *##!* the bed not hard to pull but you will need a frind or to'too help left it off then pull the pump out of the tank and take it to rad, shop and have them put a new tube on it.then find where the full line come out up front and re rout it to where you wont it to be.We put my sons fule pump on the frame in front of the tank, and the reg, on the fire wall.on the right side this was a 1988,S- 10.Hope this helps.
