Intank fuel pump??

Any one give any thought to installing an intank fuel pump, like the gassers?
I am wondering why it would not work???

What are you looking to gain? Not only are intake pumps a royal PITA, getting one fabbed up would be more trouble than it's worth.

that is probably the reason why Ford didn't put on intank.

What does a gas fuel system run at 35-50psi? and isnt the 99-03 fuel pumps run 70 psi ? So right there I think they are more prone to fail and its better to have it on the frame rail to change it. I am taking you are asking if there is a ford gasser tank module that you could use to drop in yours and the pressure wouldnt be high enough. otherwise what are you looking to gain?

As far as fabing up the install,, I'm thinking put the pump in place of the premix chamber. The wiring can be done with fittings used in race car tank fabrication to get the power through the sending unit plate.
Br pressurizing the fuel lines from the tank, you would eliminate air being sucked into the system. Add filters and or water separators if necessary in line under pressure.
Just seems, at first thought, alot easier, and less expensive that the available FASS set ups. I work with intank pumps in gassers alot, and they aint that big a pain, IMOHO.

Thats cool you have a justification for it. Would you be running an intank pump and the stock pump, or you trying to eliminate the stock pump. My only question is if you could find a submersed that can pressurize high enough and be able to last pumping diesel becuase it is a little more viscous than gas.
