Default Fuel Cell in a fuel injected car?

Hello NASIOC,
I have been pondering this for some time. I even found a custom made fuel cell for the 2002 WRX from ATL (although its $1300, cough cough). Anyways, since the fuel cell does not have a "drop in pump" (or so I assume, correct if wrong) I was wondering what I would need to get it into the car.

Fuel Cell
External Fuel Pump
Fuel Pressure Regulator
Fuel Filter
BS Lines

What else???

$1300???

Why not buy a universal one from Summit Racing for $200 and put the remaining $1100 into other performance mods?

You would need what you listed. An external pump of some kind is probably all that is necessary, but the rest would not hurt. Also look into the newer nylon braided lines instead of BS. They are just as strong as the steel, lighter, and won't cut your hands up when installing.

I agree with buying a universal one from Summit or Jegs. Much better way to go. You are going to have to fab whether you pay 200 or 1300 might as well save your money.

First off, thanks for the feeback and now I feel a little more confinent.

Secondly, I will not be paying $1300 for a fuel cell (although REALLY nice), but I won't be getting a plactic jug either. If I am going this route I am going to do it very safely and either use a Fuel Safe or ATL fuel cell that has a inner fuel bladder.
