Just a note if you do use the f-body pan, it comes with the flow thru cover, so no oil cooler lines are needed.

Wide open design sells a replacement piece that has a couple fittings in it for easy accumulator or sending unit plumbing. It's about $45 if I remember correctly.

Ever tap a stock one for a gage? That is what I was going to look into doing?

There's two types, one is easy to tap (has a boss on it), the other style doesn't have much there. Depends which you have. I have the one that has a boss on it thats not drilled, so should be able to tap.

I have heard also of removing the old sending unit, which is on the top-back, cutting the top off, and drilling and tapping the base to thread in the new adapter. I might look into that.

Page 35 has a cool adapter that will allow the factory sender and has a 1/8" hole tapped for a secondary pressure switch/gauge. I made my own to accomplish this but the S&P version is cheaper/easier.

Have you decided on your fuel system yet? I crapped out another e2000 pump last week and have been searching for an alternative since. The reason I keep losing pumps is because I was pulling it through the Jeep filter/regulator.

I finally discovered this from Novak. http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/f...uel_module.htm

It allows you to use the Jeep TJ or Cherokee pump/sending unit. The pressure is not an issue, without the Jeep filter/regulator it is capable of the 58 psi easily. My only question is volume. Anybody have any input on a non-regulated Jeep TJ/XJ pump volume? A Walbro 255LPH in-tank could be a solution, but if the Jeep pump is enough, why not use it?

It would be nice and quiet too with the in-tank vs. external pump.

Let me guess...

...you suggested using a 5.3L?

from what i have read a tj need's to be a 03 or later to have enough fuel pressure to run the 6.0. they say sometimes the earlier ones will work and sometimes they wont.

03-04 went to I think 45-48 psi.

That is why I went with a different pump, my TJ was like 40 psi. So I went with the corvette goodies..

My research shows it's actually the Jeep regulator/filter that is causing the issue, not the pump. An unrestricted Jeep pump should be more than enough (personally I am using a Walbro 255LPH in tank). Go back a few posts and look at the pics I put up. Novak now sells that kits that replaces the Jeep filter/regulator with a flow through design.

Another option would be to tap the tank with a bulkhead type fitting and drop a pick-up line in the tank with an external in-line pump.

But until you get around the Jeep filter/regulator your fuel is going to be restricted.

Edit: By "unrestricted Jeep pump" I mean no Jeep regulator; you still need a regulator to keep it in the range the engine wants/needs.

Yes, but the point is that in the 03 redesign, the regulated rail went from 45psi to 58psi. So later models can hook up an LS motor with no other modifications...
