PLUMBING AN AEROMOTIVE STEALTH/PHANTOM IN-TANK FUEL PUMP TO FEED OUR HUNGRY ELEPHANT
Dan Foley

From the beginning of the buildup of Project Cool Blue, our resident 1965 Coronet, our intention was for it to be a stock-looking sleeper. From behind, we wanted that stealthy factory look, sporting the stock gas tank, leaf-spring suspension, and OE-appearing down-swept tailpipes. We didn’t want an unsightly tank sump with hoses hanging underneath outback, nor did we want a fuel cell in the trunk when we were fueling up at a gas station. For this installment, we plumb and wire up an Aeromotive Stealth/Phantom in-tank fuel pump to a pair of Edelbrock 800 AVS carburetors to feed our thirsty elephant engine.

In case you missed the many previous installments, we have been fortifying the early B-Body to handle a pump-gas, dyno-proven 825hp, Ray Barton–built, 528-cube Street Hemi. In the last go-round, we installed a QA1 REV Series carbon fiber driveshaft that can safely handle up to 2,000 hp. Prior to that, we wired the engine compartment and hooked up all the necessary components to crank it over and fire the spark plugs.
