Intank is the only way to go, doing a inlet is a waste of time because at that point you are using 2 pumps and still have to use the stock pump to feed the inlet pump. Just drop in a Walbro into the tank.

from i know from my friends the problem with intanke pump
is that the pump is located a bit high in the tank and that can cause
"cut off's " when you're on low fule level

is there any special way to instell it ? that i know about it ?

Dont run low on fuel...

Should mount damn close to where stock does, with the baffels in the tank, cutoff seems unlikely, but possible i guess

Shouldn't be a problem in our cars, I ran my car at the drags all the time even with 1/8th of a tank and never had an issue with the car cutting out during a hard launch.

On our cars the screen and inlet of the pump sit really low in the tank.

What about starvation from side loading? 80mph sweepers on Hoosiers would average just over 1g with spikes up near 1.3. Are our tanks baffled at all?
