    some rough instructions

    You will need fuel line about 1 or 2 metres the same guage as the brass fittings and solid fuel lines on your car and a small piece to go between surge tank outlet and inlet for the external fuel pump 8 small hose clamps wiring diagram wire relay etc external fuel pump I used a 2nd hand vl turbo one
    a pair of nuts and bolts and a drill and drill bits to make two holes that these bolts will fit through and a drill bit big enough to drill a hole so the fuel tank strap bolt can fit through I think its 8 or 10 mm..


    Basically get the rear end of the car up off the ground then you have to undo the bolts holding the straps that hold the fuel tank in place and drop it down.
    Place the surge tank up under the car so the brass fittings are on top and pointing towards the middle of the car.
    The bendable strap should now be bent up so it lines up with the bolt hole that the fuel tank strap bolt was in. Mark where the hole needs to be drilled so the bolt can now hold up the tank and the fuels tank strap.
    Now get out from under the car and drill out the hole and get the brass fittings and get thread tape or fuel proof sealant use it on the brass fitting and stick them in the three holes at the end of the tank.
    Get the fuel tank strap bolt and use it to hold the tank in position so you can drill two holes through the L bracket and through the floor (boot) of the car and use the pair of nuts n bolts to hold tank in place.
    Now you will be able to see where you need to cut the hard fuel lines so you can plumb them up to the brass fittings using the fuel line and hose clamps. Now you can sort the wiring and put the fuel tank back in place.
    You will need to have some fuel in the surge tank so the external fuel pump doesnt run with out fuel while the tank is filled by the intank pump.
