I think he means "tap into the fuel line."

for 300 bucks, i dunno, might be easier to let a shop do it....

Do it yourself.

All you need is 2 brass hydraulic fittings, 8' of fuel line, some wire and an A/C line quick disconnect tool.

Remove the fuel line going from the sender to the fuel cooler, mount pump, run line from sender to pump then pump to cooler, run wires, load bigger tune and enjoy.

There's 10" of snow and its freezing cold or I'd go get you pics of both. No need to drop the tank or cut any lines.

The braces are very straightforward. You dont re use the nuts. You use the bolt things that came in the kit. You should have 2 gold ones and 2 silver ones.

Here's the only pic I have of it. You can mount it here or on the frame. It will be louder on the frame.
