Depends on your build. If it’s pretty close to stock I’m sure a 255lph will work.

Get the Hotwire set-up from Caspers.

My car is currently pretty much close to stock but will be building up and want a pump that can work well into high 10s (wishful thinking ) just want to do this once so I get that out of the way I remember reading about that walbro 340 loh or something like in that range, just looking need to know if all this can be done with stock hanger or if everything needs to be upgraded with the goal I have in plan

Fair enough. You can go larger for sure. I believe a 340 will fit in the stock hangar.

The issue you may run into is the return line may be too small to get your idle PSI where it needs to be. So that line may need to be changed/modded. Some guys swap the return & vent line. Not sure how well that works though.

I’d do some searching on here about that. Goes back a long way since they got the site back up.

I purchased the Racetronix G7 ss w/255 lph Fuel Pump - Sending Unit & Hotwire Kit this winter. Getting ready to install it here in the next week or so. But, then again I have no asperations of going big in the future. Only wanting to replace some 37 year old parts. OK maybe some 42 lb injectors later :unsure: ;)
