Thanks for the response MadMike I can totally do that, but sometimes it's the challenge of just figuring it out. Others have done it with mechanical pumps, so I'm wondering if I have a known problem here that people live with or maybe I'm the only guy with a center mount blow through and a mechanical pump combo? Or possibly I've got another issue I have yet to figure out ....

Ya once I switched to 48 Ida's I needed the flow so Holly Blue did it, I've run stock pumps with 44 IDF's with no issues.when They were N/A :)
since my cars are set up for electric pumps I'll use them for Turbo :wink:

I'd like to recommend using a by-pass regulator on any Holley pump -- I was always having a short life span on my pumps and once I went to a by-pass reg with a return line my pump temps went way down and their life span went way up

I'm switching to a red pump, I think the blue was to much for the 2276 and it was flooding the carb so bad I have fuel dripping out the Aux vents @ idle :roll:
also 'cracked cylinders' on the last pass:cry:
but I' so deaf couldn't hear detonation if my ass depended on it :roll: :lol: plus the fact I had the boost cranked up as high as the little control knob will go :shock: :lol:

I was referring to a new Wastegate, should have been a little more specific.
