Drilling holes in the pump basket

So im sucking the fuel pump basket dry, The car will not rev past 6500 rpms when in boost. One time it did alow me to go to 6800. ( fuel cut is set at 8K MSD is set at 7600 ) and full tank of gas.

So I keep hearing drilling holes in the basket, but im wondering where exactly and how big of holes and how many??

You have a PM

whats not included in the PM is that i drilled about 5 holes on the front side of the basket. Make sure you get that part straight so you trap the fuel in the basket. i used a pretty small drill bit I think it was like a 1/8" or something not to big like that.

Once you drill holes in the tank (need to be 4 to 6 and 3/8 at least) then as your fuel gets low and you take off you will not have much fuel in the Res/basket , this will kill your engine just as fast , you have to keep it at 1/2 tank+ to be safe
