Fuel cell help

Im looking to get a fuel cell for my truck soon. I had a few questions. I got a holley "blue" electric fuel pump givin to me, problem is i dont know if it will work. I know it will work on carbureted cars but will it work on my dak? heres a link to the pump.
http://www.holley.com/12-812-1.asp
Also is there a way to get my gas gauge to work with a cell?
Does anyone have a fuel cell they would want to sell?
Thanks in advance

if you get a cell the same depth as your fuel pump you can use the stock pump.

and if you read at the bottom of your link it says Not designed or recommended for use with fuel injection systems

that pump won't work. not enough psi as for the gauge if you still use the stock pump then your fine.
