Re: Sniper: Anyone using the standard "kit?"
I dunno, I had my share of issues with external pumps and would never recommend them. The problem is they don't pull/suck very well, and having an external means you gotta pull fuel all the way up to top of tank through the sending unit.
Then there's the lack of baffling in a stock tank, meaning when fuel gets low, it can slosh away from the pickup, and these kind of pumps do not like sucking air. Holley Hydramat could help that, but by the time you buy that and do all the work, you probably could've just gotten a Tanks Inc unit for similar money, less work, and a better end result.
I bought a Tanks Inc tank back in 2013 when they first came out for A-bodies and I have zero regrets and would do it again in a minute.
I get that you have a new-ish tank, (i have a brand new one in my basement too) but if you really want to do it properly, get an in-tank pump setup.
