Hey Fellas,

I've got a rebuilt Holley 1850-2 600CFM that's going on the new motor (temp until the 650DP is rebuilt) and was wondering what PSI I should regulate the carb to?

I've got a Carter electric fuel pump that is preset to 7PSI and 100gph free flow. What sort of regulator should I run? I've got the Holley 803, but maybe maybe I don't need something that big.

Thanks in advance.

Erik

6 PSI and the Holley regulator is fine.
