Default C5 Help?! (yes Corvette topic)

I've got the vette apart right now, and i've honestly forgotten just about everythign corvette over the last few years.

My Racetronix 255lph pump was lacking, I thought I could just swap in a 450lph pump in the same fuel housing. That's clearly wrong, now I need a new housing at a minimum. Does anybody sell a fuel pump housing for the C5 that will fit a 450lph pump?

Thanks,

Itís a 99 not the early style 97-98 as those posts were about. Also those threads are old, wondering if thereís been updates or new products.

i rarely worked on my C5 when i had it (oil changes was about it), and I don't mess with my Chevy truck at all. the shop does a fine job changing the oil and rotating the tires as needed.

Racetronix has been extremely responsive. I think the answer is a happy medium between the 255 and the 450.
