clay smith cams

Has anyone had any experience with clay smith"s high volume fuel pumps? They claim they can provide enough fuel for big HP numbers and they are pretty economical. Thanks for any help.

Nothing radical 485 to 500, my other problem I have is the car is a first gen camaro and the pass. side motor mount is extremely close makes for a tighter package

OK, I'm just looking at it from a required fuel delivery standpoint. If the motor requires 0.5 lbs per hp/hr, then at 500 hp, it would require 250 lbs of fuel per hour. Since gasoline weighs 6.216 lbs per gallon, this would compute to the motor requiring 40.2 gallons per hour. Most any pump can provide that much flow.

Here's a muscle car pump from Carter for a big block Gen I...
