    Ok, so the motor is in and now I need to plumb the fuel. I see the 2 inlets on the back of the TB. Can I just add barbs and run rubber hose to these?

    Also what recomendations for a fuel pump (no inside the tank pumps please)?

    I would try and use O.E. hoses off the back of the Throttle body. The gm's are bent to clear everything and alreay have a flex hose in them and go right to the frame rail. Holley has an external pump that works with the T.B.I. system. It's actually the one from their T.B.I. system, but it works with any T.B.I. and will fit inside the frame rails.

    plus the GM TB uses unique Saginaw-style fittings. I would get the supply and return lines from a junk yard and you can cut the braided line off and slightly flare the end of the metal line and just hook up some fuel line to the metal line and hold it on with a hose clamp...

    For a fuel pump, any external fuelpump capable of about 20psi or more should work just fine
