Welcome!

What year and model of truck are we talking about? Are you wanting to convert to e-fuel or what is your though behind running an e-pump with a mechanical pump (normally you would not run both)? Cheers!

No you cant because the stock fuel bowl cant handle the higher pressures an e-pump would create you have to do a complete e-fuel conversion or replace your fuel pump.

That's no where near enough pressure. Obs is generally around 30-40 psi. You'll wipe injectors out with that low of pressure.

If you don't have plans for major modifications such as huge injectors a replacement mechanical pump will be just fine. I highly suggest you replace all the soft hoses in the engine valley at the same time.

The pump it sounds like you have is for maybe a carbed gas vehicle. Your choices are pretty much do a diy efuel i did mine for about 350$ or aftefmarket efuel ...idk price but expensive. Highest price parts for efuel are regulator and pump otherwise other parts are cheap all parts/fittings/hoses can be found on ebay. And writups are throughout the forum
Or replace stock pump for almost same price.as efuel if you have mechanic do it to slightly cheaper if diy.

Benefits of efuel are more consistant fuel flow, less parts in engine bay helping with lesser chances of leaks, better starting, ive noticed better acceleration others have to as pump doesnt have to build pressure.
