    Fuel tank clean up question

    Hi I just got my pump from racetronics and im fixing to install it soon. Do I need to clean the fuel tank when I drop it? What's the best way to clean it. I'm guessing i have the metal fuel tank since is a 98 TA. I was thinking of doing a hatch door for it but if I have to drop the tank then I don't really need to do it. Thanks.

    Imho, no need to clean out the tank unless you think there is debris in the tank. After your install change the fuel filter too. Took me about 3 hours start to finish to change mine dropping the tank..
