Fuel Cell and external pump

I have looked in the forums and havent found the info I'm looking for. My Trep is a racecar that in ran on an oval track and I am planning on putting in a fuel cell so I need to run a external electric pump. What psi do I need to look for and are there any other issues I need to be prepared for? I have a 3.5ho in the car.

very nice looking trep do you have more pictures? how well are you running on the track.

IIRC psi on the fuel pump is somewhere around 50 to 55 psi

Ill get more pics, none on the laptop. It runs 17.8's on a 3/8th mile oval, finished 5th in points had some issues with another drive the last few nights that hurt my points I was second for most of the year. This winter I'm shaving weight out of the car and putting in the special suspension.

A friend of mine had built a 85 Mazda FWD racer a couple summers ago and we would go all over the state with it. But, after he got divorced he moved and that was the end of that. Now there is a 1/4 mile dirt track that just opened last spring down the road from my house. It is strictly for FWD. They also have a "double-figure 8" FWD class. I have always wanted to build one and if I get the chance it will be with a 1st gen.
