Good find, that's how we did mine but we dropped the tank instead of cutting the access hole.

'98's and earlier are different, this is for the cars with the plastic tank only. You can use the same idea on them though. Area of cut to access tank is different too.

Man! I found this just in time! My buddies and I where done droping the panhard bar and the gas tank, took out the pump installed new one and we didnt know what wires to connect. I got on his laptop and got on here and found this, we just finished the pump installation, turned the key pumped worked car fired up!

Just finished at about 1 am its almost 2 now and i did cut the sections that write says too. installation wasnt too bad! good thing i have TSP duals, but my lungs hurt now.

Yea, if you dont make the cuts, the car will run like crap!
I just want to point out, that when the bucket goes back into the tank, you will have to push it down a very little bit, but its on springs for that reason..
I also used fuel injection hose instead of the supplied STRAW that I got with my pump. (must NOT be fuel line, but has to be fuel injection hose)..

Also, DONT use electrical tape to wrap the wires.. Get crimp down barrels to connect your splices..

I noticed a bunch of traffic to my install page lately, now I know where it's coming from. I made an update to the page because I hadn't done anything with it since I wrote it back in early 04 before a few things came about.
