So a fuelab is set for 70 gallons per hour at 70psi. A valve that can flow 6 gallons per minute should not present a restriction correct?

6 gallons per minute times 60 minutes in an hour= 360 gallons per hour....so correct....wouldn't think it would present a restriction. What side of the pump is it on, suction (i.e. feed side) or post pump side and what pressure?

I don't have the pressure that it can flow the 6... It would be on the suction side of the pump. I did the math - just wasn't sure if there is something else to consider...

I don't know what the stock valve is... The new one is supposed to be 3/8".
