what fuel pump would you run? e85, efi, etc

converting from carb to big stuff 3 on my street car. I was just wondering what everybody recommends for a good fuel pump and regulator? Would like to be able to handle 1000 to the tire. Also would standard stainless braided lines be OK with e85 use or should I switch over to teflon lined hoses?

I would like to see a picture of your ride. 1000 horsepower on the street sounds real boss.

That's not a big stretch for a street driven car with 700ci!

I dont want to pay that fuel bill!

Give me a smaller engine (a 350/383/454 or so), turbocharged, with adjustable wastegate so I can turn that boost down when its not needed. Run lower octane, and improve fuel mileage.

On the track, crank the boost and run high octane.

Thats the ideal street machine...IMHO

I would recommend the stainless line becaust e 85 eats rubber type lines over time.Good luck.

If you turbo charge you need low compression(for low octane gas and because turbo turns up compression)383 or a 377 would be my choice.Good luck,handy7rick(although 350 may get better mileage with less tork also)
