modern fuel tanks

ok, I'm still trying to find the right words for these questions, but hopefully someone will respond to this.
I have a 2000 S10 blazer tank, I need a fuel sender and fuel pump for a carbeurator. The stock sender/pump for this tank puts out like 50 psi and has weird newfangled fittings. Are there any other vehicles that have a sender unit that would drop in, I would like the fuel pump pressure to be less than 40 psi and to be able to setup with AN fittings. I'm gonna use a 3-port regulator to control the fuel pressure.
Has anybody else setup a system like this, can anyone relate their experiences with a setup like this? Particularly using a high pressure stock pump with a carbuerator.
thanks for the help

Im lost.. if you have everything, why do you need something else? The regulator would be what you would need to run the highflow pump on a carb. Are the fittings on it the only problem? If all else fails, cut em off and put your AN fittings on it? Best bet would be to call chevy and talk to a master tech and ask if any other units would work in that tank, if he's any good, he'll know. Im sure somebody else here would know as well, but that might help you get faster answers.

The problem is that I don't have the fuel pump/sender unit yet, and the stock one isn't very desireable due to the extremely high pressure used and the weird fittings. Plumbing is one of my weak points, this will be my first time using AN fittings, and I'm still looking up how they work, and which fitings go where and what not. I never thought about calling a master tech though, I'll give that a try, thanks.
Still, anybody else have some input, I'm looking for as many opinions as possible.
thanks again

My suggestions is for the money you will spend to make it work right you might as well just buy a fuel cell. Or buy one online thats custom built with the fittings you need.
