The fuel pump is a GSXR 1000 bike pump. It has pre filter, high pressure pump, pressure regulator and high pressure filter all built in so is great for packaging. I may remove the pressure regulator though as it's not adjustable and fit an external one. I've removed the float mechanism.

Fuel pump adaptor machined up. I'll pick my fuel tank up tomorrow and get the adaptor welded to the bottom and the breather and fuel return fittings welded on too.

Like a lot of projects, progress has been a touch slow / stop start. I've also had a bit of a change of direction. I was planning on running in Mod Prod next season in the Welsh Championship (hence the K series head which retains the original A Series block) but there's nobody else in the class so I've made a decision to go and run in Sports Libre where there will be a handful of cars / competition. 

 

Sports Libre allows a lot more freedom (although I will be keeping the shell in Mod Prod configuration (or close). Engine choice is free so I'm going Honda Powered :-) I've bought a Honda B18 engine (with B16 head) and an LSD box. I've also got a subframe on its way too. Hopefully this will be a simpler build than the K Series conversion....
