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.

There are a couple of ways that you could do it. You could run a second fuel cell up front with it's own pump and regulator for the nitrous. This way you can run higher octane for the N2O. Or you can upgrade your existing pump to one of say 250 - 300 GPH to support both motor and N2O. I'm sure if you contacted the manufacturer of the Nitrous kit that you have, they will give you their recommendatios as well. With one pump, one fuel tank/cell your saving weight as well. Good luck!

Now you HAVE to get it done and humiliate the import.:thumbsup:
