Are you doing this, Paul? Unfortunately, I can't photgraph the return line, but I can probably get a good pic of the custom feed line.

Just considering my options since the white ghost leaks fuel on the muffler if you fill the tank too full.

Highly recommended upgrade. Also big fun at the gas station, as the attendant stands there waiting for the pump to shut off. . .and waits. . .and waits. . .and wonders where 22 gallons of fuel are going.

Hi..I just did the tank conversion on my 924 S...did you have any issues with the fuel gauge in the dash..did you have to recalibrate the gauge needle..Im asking because the other day my low fuel level light came on and seemed earlier than normal...granted I am unsure of the reliability of the gauge sender since it was used with my donor tank, and my fuel level gauge is a little jumpy anyways, but was wondering if you had to do anything to the gauge itself since they are calibrated differently from 944 to 924 senders..

Email me, jeff, usairbearphx@yahoo.com

Gauge works just as stock. Therefore, bad grounds, old wiring, or flaky sending unit will give odd results...just like the stock setup.

Yeah, it doesn't need correcting. Late sender works with early gauge. You have another problem.

Ok cool..must just be the sender..it was used and didn't know the condition..should have checked it before I installed...and maybe the fact that I only put 3 gallons of gas in after the install to begin with and maybe just functioning normally..LOL..forgot about that
