Yes those ports are exactly for that... Testing before and after the filter. Either way you need to have at least 10 PSI at WOT...

Time for a lift pump...:

AirTex pump... ($149)
http://www.dieseldistributorsusa.com...ump-p/atlp.htm

And The Vulcan Big Line Kit...($114)
http://www.vulcanperformance.com/ser...er-Pump/Detail

So for... 149 + 114 = $263 Bucks you can upgrade you fuel system without the big price...:Thumbup:

Stock replacement... It meant to be put back in stock location even with metric threads for banjo bolts... It puts out the stock volume and pressure ~14-15 PSI.

I called AirTex directly and talked to there tech dept. about the pumps. They say it meets and exceed stock pump abilities...:Thumbup:

sounds nice what kind of warranty? When I have to change my holley I may just updated to this but will need the adapters for my big line kit as I just ordered the one for a holley and saved a few bucks. But I should be able to get them at a local parts store. But my holley been running for a year no issues
