Great idea!I'm way too green when it comes to carbs, but I thought I had just heard that fuel pressure over 7psi would cause this, and the optimal is considered 6 to 6.5 psi.
I have plans to install a fuel pressure regulator and gauge under the hood so I can keep an eye on mine. Not expensive at all, and should deliver the right pressure all the time.
This is the setup I have on mine:
The Holley inline electric 'lift' pump I have only puts out up to 7psi as well. The regulator keeps it reigned in at 5.5 psi.
