Converting your vehicle from a mechanical fuel pump to an electric fuel pump system can help you avoid vapor lock issues, even out idle speeds and increase the torque of your engine by providing your engine with a reliable and constant fuel at an even temperature. You can place an electric fuel pump anywhere on the body of your vehicle where you can attach a ground wire to the frame. It will take about an hour to convert a mechanical fuel pump to an electric pump.

Step 1

Disconnect the negative cable from your car’s battery and then remove the gas cap from your gas tank. Removing the gas cap will help to relieve pressure in the gas lines. Pump your gas pedal a few times to further dispel the pressure.
