    Would need at least a 10 quart 12 is better tank and 5 in the pan.
    Fuel pump should use around 12 gallons so 16 gpm pump.
    with the 4.30 first gear at around 1.4.

    This all depends how much power you are making regarding gear and fuel.

    Blain, what oil pump do you have? I run a RCD pump on my TFX and my tank is 20 qts and have 4/5 quarts in the tank after a run. System One pumps seem to return better and do not require as big a tank.
