Default Fuel Set up

I got a 68 Chevelle that I converted to a LSX 376. Im worrying that I will need a sump pump in my tank for fuel. Anybody have any ideas? Im thinking 1/2 line will be fine. I have the stock tank that I want to run.... Thanks for the help.

I'm running the Tanks Inc set up with the walbro 255lph pump. I have put about 500 miles on the set up and have run the tank pretty empty with no sputtering on turns, take offs or stops. It is a little on the loud side but it fit in my stock 64 tank with the only other modification needed was a little hammer time on the trunk floor where the drop in assymbly is. But this is only 3/8's fuel line.

I installed an inline pump above the original gas tank. The metal line from the sending unit to the pump is shaped like a sink trap this keeps fuel in the line to feed the pump on start up. If you mount the pump on the frame rail as close to the sending unit as possible make sure the pump is below the tank. Using the original line with a quick connect to the fuel rail. LT1

I installed a fuel pump and sending unit assembly from a 4th Gen. Camaro in my original tank. I've been running it for 3 years and no problems.

Are you a carburated LSX guy or an injected LSX guy?

You will not need 1/2 fuel line, 3/8 will work fine.
