Those of you who have electic fuel pumps; where did you locate them? My Holly pump is now on my drivers side fender well and has worked well for over a year. I now need that space for ignition and other goodies. Your help appreciated. Thanks.

one thing to consider.....

Holley fuel pumps(and as far as I know all other elctric fuel pumps) are designed to be "push" pumps....they need a good gravity flow to their input port and then they will push the required fuel to the destination at the predetermined pressure.....

From reading posts on this forum for so long, I've learned that guys installing fuel injection systems that either required or came with electric fuel pumps had to install them at or near the gas tank itself.

This is just my two-cents worth. I have no experience in this subject.

I have had other four wheel drives that I have installed electric pumps on and it always said to mount them as close to the tank as possible. So I would have to agree with Ralph.
