I don't know the answer there. but the jet pump thing basically works to help keep the swirl tank full. it's ALSO fed from the left side of the tank so it's not just the little jet pump thing from the right side.

I have a stock pump assy sitting on my workbench if you want photos, but it'll have to be tomorrow since I have some plans today and tonight.
Thanks for the clarification.

I am good on pics but thanks, I have another OE fuel basket assembly too. I am just going to run a second fuel basket on the sender side to feed the stock basket setup essentially. The only thing I have been working on is how I would automatically switch it on. If I run the car this year, I was just going to run it on a manual switch and have a motor controller run it at a lower duty cycle.

Maybe. It is on a flex hose already mounted to the sender on the passenger side. I am kinda curious in the radium jet pump now. I don't think it will be enough for e85, but for pump gas it may be enough to keep it from happening.

My car has the Radium in tank hanger and a Radium surge tank, I can say for certain that you can pump the tank pretty much completely dry with an unhooked fuel line rather than missing what is in the right side of the saddle like a stock setup.

Whether the surge tank assists in this by dumping fuel back into the tank I can't be sure of.
