How much fuel volume is needed to be on the safe side.Motor makes 435 Hp with a BSFC of 0.622. I am thinking of upgrading the fuel delivery system. Now holley 110 gph and two port regulator.Old style. What do you think?

One gallon in less than 30 seconds at the carb MINIMUM Hans.
That is coming out of your fuel line where it attatches to the carb.
MM will deliver one gallon of fuel out of a #6 hose in 16 seconds!

Hans, how are you figuring your Brake Specific fuel consumption? Are you measuring it or calculating it?

I guess that rules out one Holley 110 gph pump. The most we get at the carb is 1.27 gpm.One gallon takes 48 seconds.
Hmmm.
Thanks Alex.
