Fuel Pump Power Question - GTS Zenki

Morning all! I'm nearing completion on my swap, but I'm stumped on my fuel pump wiring. Two things to keep in mind: (1) I have a custom MSI pump for my setup on a stock SR5 tank (2), my rear harness is also a stock SR5 harness. I'd like to have the power spliced in from the Driver's side fuse panel,...

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Update! Got the car to fire yesterday. It only ran for a few seconds before dying. Seems I need to adjust my timing, BUT IT RAN! I'm also not 100% confident in where I spliced my Fuel Pump wiring, so I gotta look at some options for that. Gonna look into the COR behind the glove box and see if that'...

So sick dude!! You're almost there!! Side note, can you clarify a bit on the drive belt problem? Was it too short even with the alternator as short as it will go? Were you using an OEM Toyota belt or aftermarket? I know when I replaced my belt(s) last year, I had to make several trips to the parts ...

Looks good dude, you're almost there :). Just to let you know, it's been proven that silicone hoses seep coolant through small pores over time, so you'll want to keep an eye on the level more frequent than rubber hoses.

Re: Fuel Line help

For the electrical side you should use a failsafe system as used in all 4AGE powered AE86 cars. This is designed to stop your pump continuing to run after you crash and you are trapped in the wreckage !!! Anything less is at your own risk. The following sketch shows how the GTS factory AFM system w...

Also the GTS pump assembly should drop right into the SR5 tank as the SR5 and GTS tanks are the same exce...
