    Fuel Cell/Pump Pics

    I'm getting ready to install a fuel cell in the trunk and I'd like to see how the few on this site mounted their fuel pump. Underneath the trunk is what I want to see, thanks.

    Mine will be external. I know it should be mounted at least even or below the outlet of the fuel cell.

    Since your car see alot of track time, I would mount the pump behind the cell also. The pump does not pull the fuel well especially when launching. Many people overlook the effect g forces have on the fuel system.

    Makes alot of sense. I wanted to mount the cell as far back as possible to eliminate clearance issues with the sway bar. Since my 10 gal. cell is 17"x17"x9" I do have 2"-3" clearance from the sway bar that I could utilize to allow the pump inlet to be further back than the oulet of the cell.

    I made a bracket for the pump that hangs off of the frame rail so that the pump in located between the fuel cell and the frame rail.

    I didnt take a lot of pictures. Mine sits below the floor as I wanted complete stealth. It also give me a full trunk space. You can not see it or the filter, pump from the outside from behind. Of course I built mine to fit and you wouldnt have that option from an off the shelf cell. I have mine bolted on the outside of the rail rather than the inside like Brian did his simply because the cell was built to fill that whole area. I made a pinch clamp for the pre filter to attach to the sump than a SS braided line to the pump. I fabbed a heat shield around it since the mufflers are right close. The post filter is further up where the old fuel tank was. Gives me excellent access to clean it out and it too has a pinch clamp to hold it in place. I dont really like all the busyness of it back there but it is what it is
