Thumbs up Aeromotive a1000 pump install ideas...?

Well i got my a1000 the other day, for starters i want to run this pump with a resoirvoir set up, also i will like to keep my stock in tank pump maybe upgrade it to a walbro to keep the fuel in the resoirvoir full ......now this is what i want to do--

tank---resoirvoir/catch----a1000----fuel rails----fpr----resoirvoir

and in that cadence it will continue, the only thing i want to do with my return line is to dump it in the resoirvoir so it will always be full

the in tank pump will be used just to fill the resoirvoir

Is anybody running a set up like this or has anything to comment AND have ideas.

Its called a Surge tank system.

You have the basic idea-but you need to run a line fromt he surge tank back to the main tank in case of overflow/air venting purposes. Also-make sure the surge tank is completly sealed.

Other than that-it is pretty straight forward.
