2) Should i use a pressure regulator with this,its a stock fuel pump?
3) Whats the best way to wire this up,i just have it hooked to the battery for now,temporary?

Any help would be great,thanks.

What Pump are you using? Carb, EFI? Vehicle?
You should use a Relay to power the Pump and Ignition or toggle switch to power the Relay.

I also put a fuse in the wire just in case it shorts. Don't want any spark or fires.
