Erik is right. I just installed one of those aeromotive double pumpers in my buddy's car and they're big. It would take a fair amount of cutting in the trunk and tank to get it to fit with access in a 240. A 525 will fit in the stock sending unit with a little modification and should flow plenty for you.

If I've learned anything, it's that my goals tend to grow over time. I'm just assuming that at some point I'll replace the smaller turbo and 3" exhaust and try to get more power out of it.

I have 2 525s in the stock sump. No issues here. But at the ending of the day it is your car and your money.

If you shop right, you can get one of those dump pump setups for $560 or so. Super easy and clean install with AN fittings built into it. No need to **** around with the stock sending unit.

Yeah, I got it for a pretty good price. Certainly far less than 'new' cost, someone bought it, unpacked it, didn't use it, sold it on eBay.

As far as fitting it on the tank... I'm not sure I see the issue? It's very low profile outside the tank, no taller than the AN fittings that screw onto it. Certainly shorter than the stock sender. I'm not going to bother chopping an access panel to get to it from inside the car, although maybe I'll regret that later. I'm just going to pull the tank, install, put the tank back in.

If a pump ever fails, at least I've got another one - if it's the secondary pump I just move a wire on the relays and drive it home on that pump instead.
