Can someone double check my wiring idea. The goal is to just bypass the ignition coil part of the ignition switch. I plan to tap into the white wire and wire it to a switch that is connected to the blue ignition wire
I have some 30amp toggle switches, need to figure out if they will be strong enough. I'll check fuses tonight.
OMFG 30A should be able to switch anything in the car except maybe the main fuse. That's a lot of switch, it will definitely handle the ignition switch.
Wiring idea looks correct.
I think Im going to wire in in parallel. That way I can keep the rest of the functionality of the key switch. If this fixes it I'll wire the other connections up to it also and keep my starter button and ignition switch.
Also working on mounting the walbro 450. The bottom insulator isn't the right size, so i'll ghetto rig that. There are a few contact points on the fuel pump assembly I'll wrap in heat shrink to keep the noise down. Need to add the racetech harness and get it all wired to the solid state relay, then drop it in.
Track day again at PIR next week. Then the car will be down for a monthish while my license is gone.
Well the last few people who installed a walbro450 did a **** job of documenting it (looking at you AbeFM, Leafy, and soviet). Probably because it was all covered in fuel and smelly. I'm doing this outside the car with a spare fuel pump assmebly so I took a bunch of pictures.
A couple notes.
- **** Racetronix. They charge $50 for a piece of **** bulkhead connector with a shitty mounting tab and shitty everything. It sucks. I hate it. **** racetronix. Again. In the ***.
- I reused the stock insulator on the bottom, there might be one that fits a walbro450, but who knows. This one worked.
- I used heatshrink everywhere that metal touched the pump. Trying to keep noise down.
- Waiting on crimpers for 12 gauge wire and then I will wire in the pump with solid state relay.
- Run a stock sock instead of the walbro sock. So you don't get fuel starvation.
Good idea on the heat shrinking, I will have to go along that route when I have some breathing room in my weekends, how does it sound? I'm getting some whine from my DW300, may need to insulate as well.
