which fuel pump to use with Ram Jet 350?

Hi I'm in the process of installing a Ram Jet 350 in my 1967 Camaro. I'm just wondering which fuel pump should i use a in tank or out of the tank pump. I'm thinking TANKS.INC for there in tank fuel pump and sending unit. Is this the best set up. They say no fuel pump starvation with this. Also is there anything else i need.

Thanks for the help!

Wink Re: which fuel pump to use with Ram Jet 350?

We used a tank mounted (internal) pump the owner ordered from a vendor on eBain.
The pump was a WalBro unit. I've used lots of their pumps over the years and had no problems to date. This install has been no different so far.

While a tank mounted pump is tougher to service when needed, I have found they seem to last longer than most mounted in free-air and exposed to the elements.

Try a google search for 68 CAMARO in tank pump or something like that and options should come up.

Okay i'll stay with the in tank fuel pump. Are TANKS.INC good tanks to use?

Re: which fuel pump to use with Ram Jet 350?

Truthfully, I've heard good things about the TanksInc. units but I've not installed one.
The unit I mentioned above is a Spectre tank with an upgraded pump. Lots of bad press for Spectre, but I believe as long as it is the later improved sump unit and you use a good pump system you shouldn't have any problems with them - at least I haven't yet ... None of the cars they are in are used in competition that would require a 'trick' tank to handle high flow or hard cornering - these are just street performance drivers.

Re: which fuel pump to use with Ram Jet 350?

I run a Walbro external right now but would have no problem at all running the Tanks Inc tank, sending unit, and pump setup. In fact, I'll probably talk myself into getting one sooner or later. They provide a vent and you'll need to figure out what you're going to do with that, typically a charcoal canister mounted high. You'll also have to plumb in another PTFE line to use for a return and install a regulator. You can use the new line for feed and the factory hard line for return to keep from having to redo the ends for high pressure.

I've got a non-EFI Tanks Inc tank and sending unit in my '49 Pontiac. Fit and function is perfect.

Good choice, I installed the Tanks Inc/Walbro 255 for an LS swap in my '67 a couple months ago. Nice piece.

I use carter street mechanical pump on both my cars. No problems and easy to service. No muss no fuss and runs great.

Re: which fuel pump to use with Ram Jet 350?

Will the Tank.inc tank have any fuel starvation issues in hard cornering or below 1/4 tank? This is my only issue with selecting the right tank.

There shouldn't be, but I haven't beaten on mine yet. The tanksinc tank has a tray for the fuel pump so you don't have to worry about sloshing. Here's a cutaway pic from their website:



And here's a shot of my tank:



And here's a shot looking into the fuel pump hole (the larger of the two) that shows the tray. You can see the little hole that allows the tray to refill, and the walls that prevent sloshing:

Tanks Inc. makes Aeromotive's tanks for them. Then they customize the components.

Re: which fuel pump to use with Ram Jet 350?

What PSI does the Ram Jet 350 require for fuel pressure?
