I am planning a 460 swap into my '85 GT. I need to swap my manual pump for an electric one. My current setup is a 302 making 270 hp on the dyno. What pump should I go with keeping in mind the future 460. Also, should I go with 1/2" fuel line or will 3/8" be o.k. for the 460? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to M&M.

assuming the 460 is stock, the stock pump and fuel line should work fine.

Heya Jason, like Steve said, welcome to M&M!

I came across this page recently and thought it might be helpful. I haven't read the info contained within, but it may have what you need.
