Installed a 300ZX TT fuel pump and my car runs finally

Well I picked up the new tank a few weeks ago and decided to install it this last weekend and picked up the intermediate rubber hose I had made this past week. The only fuel pump I had worth putting in was a 300zx TT fuel pump, I used in my old KA-T setup in my old 240sx. With a little bit of rigging I made it work. I removed the bottom bracket that hold the bottom of the pump and bent the bottom a little. Soldered the positive and negative wires. I then swapped the stock filter on to the 300zx pump because it didn't look to bad and the 300zx filter touched the bottom of the tank. I put in a few stainless steel zipties and nylon zipties to hold the pump firmly in place. It took a little effort to get the massive pump into the small opening in the tank but it eventually fit. Everything is installed and I fixed a few blown fuses, put in my new battery, my friend brother replaced the caps on my ECU, did a tune up, fixed the firing order. Now my Galant VR4 runs, it has some minor problems that need to be addressed but it runs decent, stops, etc.

Here is a comparison pic of the stock pump vs. the 300zx TT fuel pump.

I *believe* that's a pulsation dampner...

the bitterness of low quality remains long after the temporary joy of a low price has faded
