Fuel systems are often perplexing to folks, especially if their past experience with an electric fuel system consisted of installing something like a Holley Blue Pump on the frame rail near the gas tank and running it all up to a regulator and their Holley carb. And quite frankly, I understand why fuel systems can be confusing when you move into the world of high pressure fuel systems, like for an EFI system. The questions all start mounting. Should the pump be in the tank or external? It says the pump has to be below the tank if it is external, but how do I do that without it looking like crap, getting real hot from exhaust, or getting ripped off on a driveway? And where does the regulator go? You mean it doesn’t just go between the pump and the fuel rail? What if I’m going for boost? If I put it in the tank do I need to weld in a mounting plate or something? Can I actually weld on a fuel tank? What lines should I run? Why is this so complicated and expensive?
It is no wonder that there are people out there who WANT EFI but who just feel it is too pig a pain in the ass. But it doesn’t have to be. Yes, these things can be confusing, and yes they required you to figure it out and to a lot of installation and troubleshooting in the past, but that is not the case anymore. Now you can buy solutions that make installation easy, correct, and reliable for any power level. And those solutions can be just an in-tank fuel pump module like this, all the way to complete fuel systems with every component.
These new drop in modules from Holley are just one of their in-tank fuel pump module solutions and you’ll dig how easy they are to install with no fabrication required. All you have to be able to do is use a tape measure, drill a hole, and cut two small lines and a bracket to length. That’s it. Watch and see for yourself. If your tank is out of the car already, you can complete this entire installation in an hour.
