    Default EFI Fuel Tank for 4age Conversion

    I know I have asked this a million times (so have a million others probably) but when it comes to a 4AGE what options are there when it comes to converting your fuel tank/pump to handle the extra pressure needed? what other model cars tanks can be retrofitted? I was at Mx5Mania Today and thinking maybe a NA6 one??...

    The More info the better answers it will help others I think haha..
    How many times have you seen kids playing on the Touge at night.

    Ae82 pump in your ae86 tank works well. Vl lift pump and external pump also works. If you have loads of cash buy a jdm tank for what I consider stupid money.

    Wiring the tank is easy for an internally mounted pump. Bulkhead wiring connectors so the ffuel doesn't run run through the insulation.

    Sure the tank doesn't have regular efi baffles but you'll rarely get surge.

    Best bet leave your original tank and just mod it to suit. Use either a Vl in tank pump fitted to your in tank pipes or alternatively an external lift pump( reason I say this is because I've had trouble with my Vl fuel pump slipping off it's pipe). It would be best to run a surge tank if your going to be drifting it, but alot of people don't. You can get away with out a surge tank if you makesure you don't go below a quarter if a tank, cause that's when fuel surge is Likley to happen.

    I am still to looke but i think something like a VT fuel pump(intank) could work very well, as it has a swell pot and everything all in 1, so instead of needing surge tank or baffles

    $150 for new pump and assy is alright really compared to buying a JDM tank.
