Why do I need a Visconti fuel pump basket kit with hard wiring?
If you’re reading this, you likely already know. FBO (full bolt on) and higher upgrades require MORE fuel. The factory pumps aren’t really good for anything above stock power levels. You’ll need ethanol E85 compatible pumps to run increased power. Some companies sell fuel pumps that will install in the factory pump hanger and use factory wiring. Having personally dealt with the plastic factory basket and it’s construction, I’d say skip the partial measures and go big! This Visconti kit replaced the janky factory basket with a billet aluminum housing to securely hold your fuel pumps, AND allows the fuel filters to be serviced. With larger fuel pumps comes larger electrical demand, so you’ll want to install the included hard wire kit as well to remove the factory limitations. Once again, spend the money ONCE and be done with it. We only sell Visconti because we believe it is the best!
What to expect with Visconti fuel pump basket kit with hard wiring
This Visconti fuel pump basket kit will come with dual Walbro 485 fuel pumps which are capable of feeding ethanol or gasoline to your engine, up to 1,000 horsepower. The included wiring harness will also eliminated burnt up factory wiring, and voltage issues. This is a VERY solild setup that will give you versatility and reliability for years to come.
Why do I want the included hard wiring kit?
This Kit bypasses the factory voltage limitations on stock wiring by direct wiring fuel pumps to battery. It’ll increase power output from 12V to battery voltage (14V+). With direct battery voltage your are now able to maximize the pumps flow, allowing for more head room on cars with injectors that are maxing out. A not so well known issue with hard wiring upgraded fuel pumps is it can overrun your fuel pressure regulator at idle, causing your fuel pressure slowly to rise when it shouldn’t. This kit solves that problem because it still allows the fuel pump controller to switch the primary pump from low, medium and high speed.

Installation of Visconti fuel pump basket kit with hard wiring
Installation of the fuel pump and hard wire kit isn’t rocket science, but it is a bit tedious. You must remove the rear seat, passenger side to access the fuel pumps. Installing the Visconti basket is a plug n play affair, although a bit messy. We recommend you run the car almost to empty before install, to avoid unnecessary mess. You’ll install the basket with pumps, and run the hard wiring kit up the passenger side and through the passenger side of the firewall. The wiring will connect directly to your battery and will be hidden in the battery compartment. An experienced installer might set aside 4-5 hours to install this properly.
