fuel pump question

can you use a ford external fuel pump 60 to 80 psi on a Chevy 350 tbi that only requires 14 to 16 psi? will the regulator for the tbi send the fuel back to the tank and only use what needed?

You will probably blow lines because they wern't made for that high of psi.

I run a stock jeep pump on my sons 4.3tbi at 50 Psi and have had zero problems. Steel feed and return lines.

X2 on my tbi 350. When I do a stretch tank I plan on a ford pump.
