    I need some advice. I'm installing 2 fuel tanks in my project. I don't want to put fuel pumps in the tanks. If I put a low pressure electric pump on each tank, connect these to the fuel control valve then install a high (45 psi) pressure electric pump just after the valve and connect to the TPI sytem that I have, will this work or am I asking for problems?

    you will need pretty high volume low pressure tanks and some type of surge tank to provide a resivor for extra gas after the valve and before the high pressure pump. Your best bet would be to get TBI dual tanks and just replace the fuel pump with a high pressure one
