      Fuel tank all cleaned and re-sprayed, I think it came up really well.



      Pushed the foam baffle through the opening



      Walbro pumps



      All in, so much stuffing around, wouldn't fit how I wanted it to but the pumps sat nicely so it should be fine. Used 25 amp wiring to the fuel hat so should handle the pumps without melting. Bolted the stock vent, fuel sensor and filler back on.



      Need to buy another fitting...

      Also treating myself to a 3/8th Warren & Brown digital torque wrench for engine stuff.

          Did you fit 2 pumps in that foam sock thingy? I looked at buying these for the VL, I asked them and they said only 1 will fit

            I wouldn't recommend it - I am not too happy with it. Maybe twin DW400 (46mm diameter) will fit a bit nicer. The opening is around 3 1/4" (82mm) - the base of the walbro are 50mm. I had to lower one in at a time, the bolt down the fuel hose to the pump.

                Bought the o-ring speedflow fitting and finished the vent.



                Flange welded to intake. Will go around the outside weld with some scotch-brite to blend it in.







                Throttle body clears the rail





                A lot nicer than the factory thing

                    Ooh, shiny bits!

                    Can I ask why you went with a DBW throttle? I'm planning to replace my factory throttle body with something smaller/simpler but this didn't occur to me as an option. What are the pros/cons?

                      Pros;
                      - no need for idle air control valve
                      - remove ugly throttle cable from engine bay
                      - neater in engine bay
                      - can use BPP fuel rail on VVTi engine - stock TB fouled on rail

                      Cons;
                      - uses 4 AVI from Haltech which could be used for temp / pressure sensors elsewhere (but free's up 4 DPO which would be used on a stepper motor anyway)
                      - expense (throttle body, connectors, pedal assembly)

                      I looked at other non DBW throttle body assemblies and IMO they look like crap and weren't a lot cheaper than my set up. This is similar size to the Q45 that a lot of the Americans use. Bosch make a 74mm one which I think is same size as stock 2j.

                        Thanks for the explanation. Makes perfect sense in that scenario. It looks great too.

                          I'm going Bosch DBW too but keeping it reversible. The 68mm is close to factory 65mm.... here's a CAD of my set-up (to be)

                            Thanks for the info, I was wondering what to do about IACV so this could be a good solution. I also like the idea of making the engine bay a bit neater.

                              Never thought of this either, looks like a good option that i may consider for my JZ engine's

                              might just go this version though as i'm no good with a welder.

                              a quick question, what will do you in regards to pedal?

                                That looks like a nice plug-and-play solution, but $1500 + shipping? They're having a lend surely.
