I just would like to be sure i don't end up having to buy another pump should we decided to do any kind of porting.
You'll run into a flow issue with the RB carb on a BP, as it only flows 465cfm. You'll have to bump to a different carb, and at that point you may just want to go with a Weber IDA setup, or maybe a Dellorato if you can find a good setup.
I had a RB setup on my last FB. I had a Red pump w/ no regulator, then a Blue pump w/ regulator. Both worked well. Make sure if you get the Blue pump you pick up the high accuracy gauge from Billy at ReSpeed. I think it's +/- 1% for 0-10psi.
Do not listen to the person who said to run a EFI pump. Too much pressure. It will at minimum flood your car.
