99 corvette fuel filter pressure

Hey guys. i am swapping a 5.7 hemi into my old coronet and have some questions that an experianced rodder may know. Street and Performance recommends using the 99 corvette fuel filter for the swap because it has a built in regulator and a return line. I have bought the filter and have it and the fuel lines installed. I purchased an in tank efi fuel pump kit from Tanks, Inc that has a Walbro 255lph GSS340 pump. I was warned by Street and Performance Friday that the hemi needs at least 50 psi to run. I started looking for info on the Walbro pump and see that it runs from 40 to 100psi. I have no idea how the pressure is adjusted. I am assuming that the Corvette fuel filter is regulating it down to a usable PSI but I don't know what that is. Can someone inform me how the system works or how it is manually adjusted?

The 255 lph fuel pump will produce more than enough pressure for what you're doing.

If memory serves me correct the Vette filter/regulator will set pressure at 60 psi.


I ran the quick disconnect fittings on mine and loved it. For the price you can't beat em.

The Vette filter/regulator is supposed to do 58-60lbs. They are usually on the high side.

Great. I ordered the 3/8"fittings today from Jegs. With the return line being low pressure, should I bother with the fitting or just use hose clamps? The fittings run $40 for each line just at the filter! I have barbs at the tank regardless with hose clamps.

Hose clamps will be fine. Now post some pics of the car/engine

It's been a while so I am sure everybody carries them now. The one pictured is an OEM part from GM for the C5 Vettes. I don't remember the part #.
