I've fitted mine, well mounted it. I've got a bosch 044 fitted and it has a 9.5mm speedflow fitting on the inlet. I've got to get a 1/2" speedflow fitting for the inlet of the pump before I can plumb everything up. The instructions were very good but the pictures need to be bigger. I had to stretch them out to see what they were.
I used the studs that hold the fuel filter in place to mount the tank instead of the supplied bolts. They have a rubber spacer so I was thinking they would be better rather than using the aluminium spacers supplied. I did have to elongate the mounting holes on the tank because It was hitting the trailer arm (I think thats what it is called), but that may be because I didn't use the supplied bolts to mount it.
This is a great kit for the price.
There are a few things you could get rid of in the future. I used most of the old hose clamps so you don't need all the new ones. I used the studs that mount the fuel filter to mount the tank. You could probably get rid of the bolts and spacers that you supply.

Cheers m8, the tank has to sit close to the trailing arm so that it clears the diff (when u bottom out) i will make the holes in the bracket bigger for next time (also its very difficult to get those holoes right as the alignment of everyones diff is different) i supplied the hose clamps as some ppl may have crap hose clamps. The spacers in future will be welded to the bracket (but if ppl believe them easier to install without them ill leave them off) I tried to make the pics bigger but the document is already 2meg and some ppl only have dial up meaning hours to download :( i need to talk to gavin about getting the instructions put up in the tech section.

hey bud, do these hav baffles in them?how is it constructed internally?

They dont require a baffle as there is no where for the fuel to go, they do however have an internal "splash" shield to force the incoming fuel to the bottom of the tank (where the outlet is) and also to stop the incoming fuel from going straight out the overflow outlet. Internally it is hollow (obviously) and the entire tank is constructed of alloy.

Gave mine a quick detail/paintjob before I fit it. Should stand out a bit less.

Hoping it all fits without drama.

Got mine fitted now. It's solved the problem I had with fuel pressure dropping under half a tank and now the fuel pressure doesnt bounce around. The needle on the guage used to flutuate 5psi but now it stays in the one spot.
An idea for future models is to keep the standard size fuel filter but make holes that the fuel filter bracket can bolt to.

NTMID 8
29-06-07, 08:28
cheers m8.
The fuel filter supplied is to suit a 300zx turbo so it can flow more than a standard filter anyways (why i chose it)

Thanks for the constructive comments and ill keep them in mind.
