This guy is going to run a DW400 when I upgrade the supercharger on the Blackbird... it will provide all of the flow that I need to make 650 to 700 wheel HP, it is a newer technology vane design, and the quality is second to none within this pump field.

Although I can't start my car at the moment, i can still get the pump to prime. Lol! However, install is completed.


Test fit on the hanger. It fit pretty snug to say the least. The hose portion turned out needing trimmed essentially to make basically a coupler. Lol!


Stock hanger connector. Hmmm. This may not work the way i wanted..

Pump wires. Nope.. Not gonna work with that stock pigtail..

Some male spade connectors fixed the little dilemma. Soldered and shrink wrapped, of course.

Aahh, that's better! Fit nice and snug on the hanger and ready to go for a swim..


I was able to prime it just fine with my secondary relay trick; it primed perfectly. Not as loud as I expected, fortunately.

Now I should get this main relay installed around this weekend and **hope** that is the issue and not my ECU and she'll be on the road again.

Txdragon, it is good to see you using a stock style angled sock... so many people use the wrong ones with this pump and they aerate often... especially at lower fuel levels. FYI, if you have an OE sock, use it. They are the very best available because of the plastic frame inside them helping to keep them from collapsing under load. I have never seen an aftermarket OE style fuel sock that has a similar frame inside and they suck flat... limiting fuel volume.

Thanks! I've definitely tried to document everything; and I mean EVERYTHING, especially with pics. That was my largest frustration when I started the first build last year; old info and no pictures when I searched something.

Yeah I looked at changing the connector on the hanger itself but decided against that particularly because it was not only easier just to modify the pump wires instead, I had more room for error there than with anything on the hanger.. Lol! Closest junkyard to me is 2.5 hours away should I have busted that hanger..

The sock is OE. I used my original for the very reason you mentioned - compared to the one that came with the 255 that I had, it looked superior in every way. Lol!

THIS, so much this. I never understood why the dinky one would be used. I would rather use the "old" stock sock, all day!


OP, nice write up! Looking forward to further feedback on this thing!

Thanks! As for the stock strainer, I vaguely remember it coming off the stock pump by accident. It wasn't just as easy as 1,2,3 but, i don't remember it being a major surgical procedure to remove either. For anyone looking upon this thread in future searches, for the love of all things holy, remove and use the stock strainer if you are able to do so. Lol! If not for reliability alone, than do it to save 25+ dollars on that joke of an installation kit..

I would probably use the stock banjo fitting and start with that. I kept that portion stock though. The lines in the bay were changed; did the -6AN off the hard lines.

Russell part # 640913 is a banjo fitting made specifically for this scenario. It will clean things up big time!
