    I plan to run mid to high 11s in my stock looking 72 455 and was wondering if Thers is a mechanical pump(TA Fuel pump) that will feed the motor? dont want to go with electrical but will if I have to.

    Thanks Doug

    Yeah, I run a RobbMC pump as well, with a good 3/8" fuel supply line, I've never had a fuel pressure problem. Best ET has been 11.77 out here in the desert.

    Craig if you dont mind whats the cam your running? Im looking for a cam to sound very mild(stock as possible) and running ported manifolds.

    Thanks Doug

    TA 288-94H is a great cam for stock appearing and good idle, but can run mid to low 12's with a fair set of ported iron heads, iron intake and iron exhaust manifolds. Should do 11's with aluminum heads and headers.
    A close second choice in power but with slightly better idle is a C118 from TA. Very smooth and sneaky cam.
    Expect 450 HP, and with good flowing heads & headers 475+.
    I love my Robbmc 550 fuel pump. You'll need one with the above cams.

    Doug, it's a Lunati cam I bought from the GS Club many years ago, Part# 33399, GRIND# H225-235. It's relatively mild;

    Lift = .493 IN .524 EX
    DUR @ .050 = 225 IN 235 EX

    Idles at 800 rpm.

    I've always wondered what it weighed, but never found out. I have the glass hood and front bumper, aluminum heads and aluminum radiator, plus no AC stuff. One day I have to find someone with some decent scales :)

    I have used a stock S-1 fuel pump and fuel line,the car ran in the low 11.70 steel heads car idle was 700,with 9.75 compression.I had a little more work done to the heads,now I'm going with 1/2 fuel line and inline electric fuel pump and bigger cam,this I got from Scott Brown.Bruno.

    Bruno,
    Remember I told you about Phil Sedlon fragging a piston running 11's with a Stage1 pump? Here's the thread,

    Funny, this thread recently caused me to rethink using the Mallory 140 I have and instead go with the very robbmc pump I recommended earlier. Kinda ironic how that happened....
