    That's actually the main thing i wanted to do since adding a turbo.

    Hmmm you got me thinking about the twin-pump set-up now. So Enda, what i would i need to do ? What do i need to change/replace ?

    The internet hasn't been helpful finding a DIY on twin-pump setups.
    Please find me at www. b m w f o r u m s .info (as @Wanda) - I do not check this forum anymore!

    wot do they do with the tank jet pump with this mod Endy?im not 100% sure on this but dosent the jet pump connect via the level sender unit and pumps/ circulates the fuel between the 2 halves of the saddle tank? so both sides syphone evenly...same as an E46...?
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...
