  I still run one in conjunction with a Carter Nascar pump up front. The unique thing about a 240A pump is that fuel will flow through it with the pump "off". I have run with it on and off and without it in the system at all. It makes about a +1 MPH difference when on so I keep it , using  it in high gear when fuel demand is critical. That's one good thing about drag racing , it tells you via the time slip if your modifications help or hurt.

     I think that means your using 110% of your fuel delivery capacity without it, and I'm sure you know, that could prove to be one of the bad things about drag racing,.......when your told you hurt something!       :'(

     And yeah, they're old technology, but they have proven do work reliably (if you have a good one) and if applied in a reasonable application and with a proper execution of installation they can provide that which may be required, and still impart the nostalgic presentation one might desire.         8)

One thing you don't find on my car is "bells and whistles". Vintage and stealth is how I roll. 240A fits my image LOL. If I don't lift the hood , everyone thinks I have an LS , LMAO.
