If you can't tell, I'm getting the itch to wrench...(and help spend other people's money, wisely).

In regards to the fuel pump: my preference for the street is mechanical in most cases, stock really works really well (I run a Carter mechanical for the engine by itself). If the stock pump isn't keeping up, check for other causes; rusted fuel lines, pinched hoses or debris in the tank or pick up.

Carb: Again, I'm a fan of simplicity and really like a standard vacuum secondary Holley 750 3310. Look at swap meets, you should be able to find one. Get aquainted with it. Avoid the urge to go gonzo on the carb. Go too big and you'll have weak signal and you'll wonder why you have such large jets and still can't get any color in the plugs.
