    [I] have a 572 10-71 intercooled BCC w/2 1290's And I run a product engineering system. There a liitle pricey, but imo the best continuous duty pump around. I ran this same pump on a 605 14-71 intercooled BBC w/ big chief heads and 22 lbs boost at 7200 Rpm. Pumps have an awesome warranty and reputation. You must run a return line form the pump. They also make boost referenced regulator, which is way cool, but I just run the conventional style.

    I'll see if I can find their web address when I finish posting.

    The web address is www.productengr.com.

    There are several factors on fuel pump selection. CI, RPM, BOOST, BLOWER SIZE, CONTINUOUS DUTY???, AND ARE YOU GOING TO RUN A FUEL RETURN BACk TO THE TANKS????
    In my situations, I have always run the 4450 pump/filter combo0 that puts out 460 GPH. Its better to have too much, and return it, than not enough..

    Good Luck, Steve

    Agreed, I am going mechanical as well and all have highly recommended Clay Smith pumps. Seems to be a universal thumbs up.

    I don't have a way to run a return to the tanks, I want to keep it simple. Will a clay smith be sufficient? or should I try elect in line with the mec? how much does a clay smith pump flow?

    "KISS" Keep it simple stupid. Words to live by. Call Clay Smith, ask for George let him know what your building. I did the same thing 588 blown BBF 12-71 hampton... NO problems... No return lines... Just used a Magnaflow pressure reg.

    Im running an electric holley pump (to prime the system) and the mechanical clay smith. The problem with my old mechanical pump was when I was trying to adjust my regulator, it would not allow me to go over 6psi. With the new clay smith pump it handles much more psi.
