    I have a stock 91 350 TBI motor, the blazer has a fuel cell, inline fuel pump. if I mash down the pedal,it cuts out a bit, but if I roll on the throttle it does fine to get my speed up. I haven`t checked the fuel delivery yet, but one guy looked at my pump and couldn`t beleave it was running my motor.

    What suggestions do people have on frame mounted pumps?
    I don`t want a real high end pump, just something that will do the job and I can get at most auto stores.

    Thanks

    I use Turbo City's TBI inline pump. Works well for me. Your problem sounds more like you're sucking air under accelaration. Does it do it with a full tank? Is the tank baffled?

    Yeah the fuel cell has like big sponges in them, it does it full or empty.
    After it I ran it for about 20-30 minutes it did alittle better, but I still can`t mash down the pedal and take off without it cutting out.
    I will check the part number on the fuel pump, it looks like it has one on the side. And check all the fuel lines for leaks.
    The fuel cell doesn`t hook up to the evap canister right now, the guy had the evap canister fitting open that is suppose to run back to the tank.

    Master E2000 works well. Application is an '89 F150 with a 302. Puts out more PSI than you need, but your regulator will take you back down around 15 where you need it. It's around $70

    Walbro is a very high quality pump, but costs a bit more.

    With a Tuned port motor I put in a '69 chevy awhile back I used a fuel pump from a mazda rx7. Frame mounted pump from a bone yard rated at 100 or so psi. It would need a good regulator to bring it down to a good 15-18 psi working pressure for you throttle body but at $20.00 from a local foriegn car bone yard maybe a viable option.
