With no built-in sump you will have to drill outlets yourself in the lower rear of the cell, they sell specific AN fittings for this. Return line should come back to the front or top of the cell, away from the outlets in the rear.

Holley Blue pump can run deadheaded for years, you can run it that way with the supplied regulator if it meets your fuel delivery requirements. You will have to buy a different regulator to run it as a bypass system.

Filter 3' away and pump another 3' from the sump is too far for the pump to be asked to draw, it may give you problems if the car is fast enough. Pump and filter should be both within the first 2-3' from the sump, ideally mounted behind and slightly below the cell outlets so that gravity and acceleration forces work for you, and should be fed with -10 line if you are using -8 from the pump to the engine.

Where does the outlet from the cell come from now?? Out of the top, with an internal pick-up??

Just to clarify, the fuel fitting leading out to the filter/pump can't be in the front of the cell unless it is connected to a pick-up tube that leads to the rear inside the cell. If it is just an open fitting then you will need to turn the cell around to face to the rear.

Just visualize what the fuel will be doing in the cell while under hard acceleration... it will rush to the rear of the cell. You want to work with that tendency, use it to feed the filter and pump.
