You're kidding, right? Do you even have any concept of what a fuel pump's funtion is? NO, A NEW FUEL PUMP WILL NOT INCREASE POWER, unless the old one is inoperative. Additionally, converting from carburetion to fuel injection will add little or no power unless either the engine is modified at the same time or the carb is not working properly.

wow, just...wow.
you do know that its usually a total pain in the ass to switch from carb. to feul injection right? unless you mean throttle body injection, which isnt much better than a carburator, just more electronics. not to mention the cost. I was thinking about changing my truck to throttle body injection just for feul economy, till i realized that it wouldnt realy help and would cost more than a years supply of gas. not to mention I would likely screw something up and end up having to replace parts that dont need replacing.
BTW hobo, will a new Edelbrock Perfomer intake manifold be compatible with the Rochester Quaddrajet? If so, would it make any noticable difference or should i just clean my stock manifold well? thanks
