Fueling the 396 and N2O

I have to plumb for a NOS plate system. I'm trying to figure out what my best option is to keep my car alive with the juice. Right now I have a Holley Blue fuel pump and regulator feeding from the stock tank with a 3/8" pickup in the tank and 1/2" line from the pump to the regulator at the carb. I don't think It'll be able to feed my 396 and a 150 shot of N2O. Here are the options I've been kicking around.

1.One of the shows on Spike TV suggested putting a second fuel cell with it's own fuel pump and regulator in the front of the car as a dedicated fuel system for the N2O.
2. Put my Summit Fuel Cell in the trunk, order another Holley Blue fuel pump and regulator, and plumb that in to feed the N2O system and the motor. The fuel cell has all 1/2" fitting. Can I tee off of that to feed both systems?
3. ???

It's not a dedicated N2O car. I just want to play with fire.

I had the same dilemma when I put nitrous on my car. At first I was going to go with a small fuel cell up front with Holley Blue pump and regulator for the nitrous. I decided against that when I realized I would need to cut the car to get the fuel cell to fit.

Ended up going with a 16 gallon cell in the trunk with a Holley Black pump for the motor and a Blue pump for the nitrous. The cell has 2 outlet fittings so there is no need to tee off for the 2 systems. Each system has it's own line, regulator and relay.

I recommend using fuel pressure switches to make sure it doesn't go lean when you spray it. :thumbsup:
