After a brief search, I have yielded conflicting information. just wondering if anyone has a confirmed answer for the following...
From some deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that I NEED to run a surge tank (car will see some serious cornering when finished), as a few people here who have done track work all seem to complain about fuel starvation issues.
So, from what I can gather I need to do the following; Mount surge tank. Filled from stock tank with stock pump. Pumped from surge tank to engine via Bosch 044 or similar, on a constant hotline relay switched from the stock fuel ecu.
Obviously there is a few filters and return lines thrown in as well, but that basically sounds about right does it not?
On a totally different angle, is there any way I could graft the stock fuel level sender into a custom tank? The lads at the shop are hell bent on making me a baffled custom tank, with inbuilt swirl pot. I told them that if I can still use the original fuel gauge in the dashboard I might look at their ideas.

Not so much too hardcore, just I have a list of requirements for the car... 1, I am keeping a full size spare at all times 2, I am keeping the original instrument cluster so need to make sure everything on it is operational 3, I need some form of fuel surge system
To many decisions :/

when I converted my carby 12A rotor to a 12A efi turbo I just installed a small surge tank between the tank and the fuel filter. I put mine under the car (due to the hatchback design of the Rx-7 more than anything). The in tank pump filled the surge tank and a second pump provide fuel to the injectors under the required pressure. Power was hard wired to the battery with a relay to a system that goes 'hot' with the ignition switch set to "on".
