What should the fuel pump pressure be?
« on: August 13, 2014, 09:27:05 PM »
I have a Redline electric fuel pump which I am using for my 2.3l carbuerated engine.   What should the fuel pressure be?  And, should I install a pressure regulator?

Depends on what pressure the pump puts out as to whether regulator is needed. The norm is around 5-7 psi, don't want to go much higher but down to 3 1/2 is OK if not loaded hard.
