    The only pump I would recomend or use for your needs is a Carter TBI inline external pump: ClickyCarter fuel pump
    Those are the best external pump for TBI. They give trouble free operation, and most important are self priming. Most all aftermarket TBI kits use Carter TBI pumps.

    I have one like the carter but its not a carter. I just walked into the parts house and asked them for a replacement external tbi pump. It was about $140.

    What exactly does self-priming mean? I assume it means it can suck some amount of air, but how much? I had a spare of the pump I'm using and tried to use it to siphon gas from my tank through the filler, but it couldn't do it. I think the pump was slightly below fuel level, but the tube went up and back down.

    Now I'm a little nervous that if I run my tank dry, I won't be able to get things fired up again. The pump I have is a Master E2000, which is the high pressure pump from an 86 Ford truck application.
