Another fueling question

Post by ThatGuy » Wed Mar 27, 2019 11:40 am

So im in the middle of my engine swap and it's coming up to fueling, I'm using an efi engine on a 2l laser so how do I go about fueling?
Would I be able to stick an inline fuel pump on the existing tank and be good?
Is a swirl pot essential?
Would it be easier to stick a 2.8 fuel tank (with internal swirl pot) in and just an inline pump?
Any help would be awesome as I need to get this bitch running soon :lol:
Cheers all

Car(s): Rat - GONE
2.8 - GONE
Volvo - GONE
Now it's Zetec SE Fezzas all the way. 3 in stock 1.6, 1.4 and 1.2
1.6 Ghia is great fun and surprisingly quick. Maybe Puma 1.7 engine in the future?

I ran the Rat on efi....you do need either the 2.8 tank and pump or a swirl pot. Otherwise when you go round a corner the engine will cut out.

Cheers for that mate, luckily I was preparing myself to buy a new fuel tank so looks like it's definitely happening now haha
