I was about to do it and then was talked out of it. enough pumping of the gas pedal can draw fuel into the bowls from the filter. anyway, Im sure must make starting after sitting easier.

you need to have a fuel filter with the pressure regulator built in which I imagine you have (glass bowl type). although the pump itself needs to be mounted below the tank, near the rear axle, where the S4 spiders have them. electric pumps are better at pushing, so you need gravity to feed the pump.... there is heaps on alfabb about them. everyone uses the "Facet Red Top" pump. assume you need to wire a relay etc. good luck. let us know how you get on. I will probably do it one day, but have more pressing issues with mine....
