I thought maybe the pump, regulator and fittings came in a kit that was a bit cheaper than buying separately. I'll be feeding a 6L LS engine and will be using the same pump setup. Thanks for the post though.
The link I posted lists it at $1250.00......

That's it... you don't need anything else! Where did you see $2k?

A new Holley 4bbl will cost between $500.00 - $600.00....

My bad! I was sure I saw $2k, but regardless $1250 US is still $1568 Canadian and still too spendy for me.

Hmm That would have been good to know earlier... LOL

I have my Sniper kit ready and just finished replacing the dual-plane manifold with a single-plane on my ZZ4....

Note: A noticeable difference in low end torq loss with the single plane manifold..... I don't really care since it is my driver and not a race car....

Curious.... How low were you able turn down the idle?I heard that is a problem.

Thanks in advance!
The idle did not seem to be a problem... I just followed the instructions..

As far as mounting the pump ... I already had two bolts through the trunk pan from the old systems electric pump.. I mounted the pump on a short piece of aluminum angle and mounted the angle with the old bolts through the floor.. It is a little closer to the exhaust than I would like but hasn't seemed to be a problem.

I'm mainly curious about the elevation of the pump and its ability to prime itself. It seems to me that too low makes it vulnerable to getting torn off from road debris and too high might impair its ability to prime itself.... Should the bottom of the pump be at least as low as the bottom of the fuel tank? The Ecklers sending unit draws from the tank bottom but the fuel has to climb over the sending unit then down into the pump suction....???

Thanks!

I was wondering about the same thing, pump elevation.

Just recently while taking a motor out of a truck, we disconnected the fuel line and anytime the end of the gas line was below the level of the gas in the tank, gas would syphon out - even though the line was routed out the top of the tank. I'm hoping that mounting the pump slightly lower than the bottom of the tank will have the same effect and the pump will stay primed.

If the pump is too exposed to road debris, I'm thinking I could then fabricate some kind of mesh protector that would block debris and still let air get to the pump.
