FUEL SURGE TANK INSTALL CONTINUED





This isn’t a very good picture, but you can get an idea of where to run the hoses in this picture, this image was taken facing the rear of the car with the camera so you can see the steering knuckle on the top left of the image. Be sure your lines clear this knuckle as to avoid rubbing a hole in the fuel lines. You can use some zip ties to hold them in place.



There is a bracket that we need to bolt to the tank and towards the subframe. Place as to have the proper angle so it sits flush, and then we can drill some holes to put the provided rivets in place to hold the bracket/tank. Once this is done, man, it feels like it isn’t going ANYWHERE, it’s a very solid mount.





Now we can move up top and start hooking up our fuel lines. We removed all of our existing fuel lines. We installed an aftermarket fuel system including fuel lines, and fuel rails and fuel pressure regulator, but we’ll get to those in another thread. Your install might differ from these instructions in this respect, but the basic installation should be very similar.

When installing the fuel lines into the existing system, the only line you really have to make sure you hook up properly is the fuel pump outlet. This will go right into the “top” fuel line going to the fuel rails on your car. (The one without the factory FPR) This is a picture of the hardline coming from the factory fuel pump, it goes to the surge tank this is the feeder line for the tank.




Here you can see the line that came off the top factory line (the one marked to rails) then the rest go to the surge tank. Including the one coming out of the fuel pressure regulator.





That’s it for the hard parts installation, now we need to move on to the wiring part. The factory fueling system on this particular car has a 3 stage voltage supply to the stock pump. Because of this, we can’t just simply wire it to the existing fuel pump wires. Luckily for us, this kit comes with all the wiring and a safety switch to avoid fuel continuing to pump after an engine shut off condition. For this, we will have to pick up an RPM signal, and an ignition signal from the ECU. No big deal, we got this!

First things first, we need to remove the battery. Undo the terminals and take them off the battery, take off the 2 nuts on the battery tie down and pull it off, then we can remove the battery to gain more room to wire this thing up.



You can see in the above pic that we have removed the fuse box top and exposed the factory fuses. Now we need to lift both fuse panels out of the housing to expose the box and the underside of the fuse panel. This is pretty easy, just take a screwdriver and gently pry the four clips on the larger panel and two clips on the smaller panel and they will pull out. You might have to work the wiring harness going into the fuse box, but they will both come out with little effort.
