I think I can shed some clarity on this. The replacement carter fuel pump comes with a threaded hose barbed type fitting. If you want to use that...you will need to cut factory rubber hose coming from tank. I did not want to do that. The factory gas line coming from tank has a female crimped thread nut. To make it plug and play you will need a 5/8 18 tread to 06 AN adapter for main fuel line to thread into.

Second...when you remove old pump, take the return thread insert with it. Leave that nipple threaded into the y union and cap it off.

Thanks in advance for your comments and recommendations!
The original OEM replacement pump (carter as well) was only $100 bucks before it was no longer available. I've got a couple hours and many sets course skiing on a p5000 in my 93 LT1. No problems, runs great.

mgs96ps do you have a link or suggestion to buy the 5/8 18 thread to 06 AN adapter? I wouldn't know where to begin to source this item.

I'm getting bog at WOT so it's time to replace. I figure if I have to replumb, might as well go with the Carter and pick up a spare and still be half the price of the Indamr. Thanks for all the help!

Thanks MCFever - P5000 seems the right pump for MPI and p61171 for TBI!

So I've been staring at this for a while; I really appreciate everyones help and patience.

I have the LT1 so do I need the P-5000 or the P-61171? I think I need the P-5000 but in the 2nd post on this thread mikeg205 said the correct part is P-61171. I've looked at the specs on Summit's site and there's no fuel flow specs on P-61171 to compare to the P-5000 so I'm sorta confused.

Mikeg205 you seem to be the most knowledgable about the fuel system, can you confirm I need the P-5000 for the LT1?

Not to be ignorant but what does MPI and TBI mean?

Thanks again for everyone's help, I really appreciate it!

I believe

TBI is throttle body injected meaning fuel is injected into the throttle body like a carburetor.

MPI is multiport injected meaning an injector for each cylinder.

I'll let the experts confirm though

I can say with experience the P-61171 is only rated at Rated 35 GPH 40 PSI
Works ok on my LT1 tell you really get on it, than you will get a slight bog, but for now I’ll live with it, too lazy to change it out. I’m old, I’m in no hurry to do anything
