Absolutly. Electric pumps seem to be famous for having trouble controlling pressure. A return style regulator very close to the carb will give you the best performance.

the holley red is suppose to be the street series pump in which no regulator is needed 4-7 psi max is what it is set for..and no regulator should be needed
