Ok i have been aske to show pics of my budget fuel return set-up so i hope this works

Ok now for the explination of how... It was real easy first you need a parts list.
airmotive boost sensative adjustable regulator...$168.79,
#6 braided hose 6ft prob only need about 3ft..$30.67,
steeda fuel rail...$99.95,
fuel pressur gauge..$23.99,
2 #6hose ends..$12.56.
plus shippin $30.00.
you will need to modify the fuel pump a bit (all you do is take the check valve off the fule pump and put a piece of efi fuel line in its place careful not to kink it. And drill a few hole into the side of the canister about 4 or 5
So total price $385.96

Now the how I already told you how to modify the fuel pump now for the fuel system.
remove the factory evap system.(you will need to tune this option out so you dont ket a engine code) cut the factory platic part of that line and plug it i use a sealant and a bolt works great.... this line now becomes your fuel return line.With the steeda fuel rail all you have to do is hook up the fuel supply line exactly how you removed it. then with the fitting that you got you can hook up the line on the other side of the rail to the fuel regulator. then hook up a peice of 3/8 efi line to the evap line from your fuel regulator and clamp it. the on the other side of this metal line back by the fuel tank you take some more of the fuel line and find a spot towards the top of the tank to go into for the fuel to go back into the tank. I just drilled a hole at the top corner and put a 3/8 90 degree fitting in it and clamp my fuel line to it..... Bam! you now have a full return system real easy and real cheap. Oh start the car and make sure you have no leaks. Btw AGAIN I STATE USE EFI FUEL LINE NOTHING ELSE!!!!! If you dont you will be doing this over because other line will not hold the pressure you need it to TRUST ME!!!! I KNOW.....lol

and tom tuned this for u

im guessing u tuned the pump to stay at wide open at all times

1turbozx3 06-30-2007 11:04 PM

have any pics of where to drill holes nice write up ;)

I dont think so. we did it with the voltage.the voltage goes up with the boost pressure controlled by the ecu. (I think ) I do remember him stating that he did not want to do that with mine so we worked around it. Tom could you help here?

I put the pump in (For placement knowledge) and put the holes on the front half of the pump (facing the front of the car) becareful not to drill into you fuel pump
when you drill these holes...(I almost did)

Sorry cant get pics of that with out dropping my tank. [dunno] just get your fitting that you are gonna use (I got mine from autozone) with your tank dropped push it up in place and look for a spot that your fitting will fit. Mine is on the top passanger side corner of the fuel tank and it fits just right.

That pic is already up there U see the one with the antifreeze bottles in it that is it. I removed the back seat and pulled away the carpet and follow the wires because the fuel pump is right under those wires...

1turbozx3 06-30-2007 11:40 PM

so whats controling the voltage to teh pump now still the ecu

can u get a write up on the wiring u did
and i ready where u said u replaced the two hose on the pump with the EFI line to right do they pull right off or did u have to cut those

As far as i know it is still the ecu controlling the pump voltage. no special wiring. all you have to do is cut a small slit in the clear plastic hose where it attaches to the top and it wil pull right off. as for the side on the pump there are 2 little screws holding the check valve on. take those out and it slips right off.

1turbozx3 06-30-2007 11:49 PM

yes yes on the evap line i see i was refaring to the ones on the pump the ones in this pic do i replace the two lines in the pic as well
