Default inline pump w/ fuel cell

i'll be running a fuel cell in my race car. i've been looking for an inline pump to run with it. i've found a few on ebay, like this one - http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33555

this would be used as the only pump in the system. 450cc injectors and about 225 whp. any input? how much flow should i be looking for?

I'll be using a fuel cell on my EK as well...

I would figure any 255lph would supply adequate fuel for any setups we would need.

Considering my bone stock in-tank supported 12psi of boost fine.

remember they PUSH fuel not pull so it must be gravity fed.

very true, i think i may also need to get a primer for it but only after refilling a completely empty tank

Well, "aftermarket" fuel cells (mass produced) have the fuel lines that come from the bottom anyway..

Mine does anyway... I'll snap pictures of it tonight.

it means that inside the cell is filled with stuff that is almost like a sponge so if u turn the car over or get a hole in the cell it won't spill no where near as fast.
