Fuel System for Fox Mustang w/ carbed stroker 331 cid
 
Greetings All:

Building a fuel system in preparation for my 500+ hp naturally aspirated, carb'ed small block. Currently have a tank sump and a big Russell Spin on fuel filter with two 1/2" NPT fittings each.
Looking at using a Holley Black pump for primary fuel supply with single -8AN braided hose and filter and regulator under hood. I may add a separate small nitrous system (100-200hp)with separate pump and line later.

Is #8 line big enough, and is the 140gph enough to support my Holley 750 DP.
Any comments or suggestions appreciated!

Paul

Basicly on a pusher pump system you want a rated capacity (at your pressure) to be twice the volume needed by the engine so as to overcome inertia, etc.

I'm sure several others will have more specific input.
