I've read about the electric fuel pump kit, but I've never seen one.

When I had my Packard Hawk I had a service bulletin from Studebaker
advising dealers that due to fuel starvation in supercharged cars at higher rev's a electric fuel pump was available to counteract the problem.I did notice the problem in mine but never saw a factory available pump.The bulletin went with the car when I sold it,I wish I could remember all the people who told me I was full of baloney about this.Boy would I show them !

I hadn't seen a factory kit, but I was aware of the Service Bulletin and the problem/solution. I didn't realize that the factory kit was only utilized upon kickdown. I also experienced fuel starvation at high RPM with a Packard Hawk. An electric fuel pump cured the problem (after trying several mechanical fuel pumps).
