Phillip Wight from Race-Lines.com supplied all of the lines and fittings. He also helped with the welding.

Fuel thing looks awesome. What exactly am I looking at though? I recognize the pump..

Congrats on the feature, I'll have to check it out.

The can is called a swirl pot. it keeps the big pump from running dry. They will go out if they run dry too much.

Is the pot homemade? Did you coat the inside or leave it bare? What's the capacity of the pot? You've got the feed from the stock pump, return from the regulator, what's the third?

Nice install, fuel supply should be the least of your concerns now!

IIRC he is going for some massive HP #s on E85 ethanol and trying to push fuel through 1600cc injectors and running out of fuel.
