    High HP fuel pump.

    I am starting a remote twin turbo setup. I know the stock pump will not handle my eventual HP goal do I'll be doing a high pressure, high gph external pump. My question is shop I keep the stock pump to feed the larger pump or remove it completely and where can I find info on doing so. Thanks

    I have the Racetronix pump with the hot wire kit. I'm running 540rwhp on 8 psi. I'd suggest probably dual in-tank pumps. Guess it depends on what your final goal will be.
    It's on jackstands.

    Best bet would be to go straight to Aeromotive, Racetronix, or other reputable company and get a recommendation on a pump setup to meet your fueling needs. Last thing you want is to run that sucker out of fuel under load.

    I want to an external, I'm looking at a Weldon. I just not sure if should remove the in tank pump or not and if so what the process is. My stock pump went out and replaced it a few years back and did the trap door mod so I have easy access.

    Is it '98 that has the steel fuel tank?

    From what I remember when I dropped it, yes it is a steel tank. Maybe a replacement task should be on my list as well...

    Fuel Cell or sump the metal tank and run an external pump.

    J -- in the generic pic, why would they loop the blue hose around the fill hose?

    I like that setup, what about fuel level? I want to keep mine streetable, so maybe putting a sump on the stock may be a better option. Now that I see this it makes sense on how to do it, I was focused on using the stock lines to pull from the tank. Thanks for the input.

    The return line is the braided one next to it. I don't have that on mine, so I really don't know.

    It comes with a level sensor that goes in the top of the fuel cell.
