View Full Version : Kirbans Pump Hot Wire Kit Good?

Can someone recommend the fuel pump hot wire kit that Kirbans sells for $60? It looks like a plug in installation with no wires to cut or splice. That is nice.

The only thing I worry about is that it is a 12 guage wire but most do it yourself hotwire articles call for using 10 guage wire.

Will this kit provide full voltage for my in tank XP pump?

It looks exactly like the Casper's kit. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's what it is. And that kit, judging by its instructions ( http://www.installationinstructions.com/102028.pdf ) has 12 guage wiring as well. Its an excellent piece! You'll be very happy with it. The stock wiring puts *7* connectors between the alternator and the pump. This reduces it considerably and increases the wiring size greatly.

Scott, thanks for the reply. I'll get on on order. I have been away on a business trip for 2 weeks and can't wait to drive the GN again!

Why don't you get 20' of 10 gauge stranded Wire a Relay and do it your self?
I'll help you step by step !

I like the weather proof connectors on the real kit, the good fitting tank ground strap, Perfect wire legnths, and good instructions. I'm sure people can make their own, but the kit looks like something GM would do. Casper's has all the right connections to make a wire kit. Thats what they do for a living. Use the experts when you can. I learned that the hard way. :banghead:

This is a great upgrade. I installed it yesterday. But I started at the back of the car and ran the wiring toward the front. It worked out better that way so the relay housing didn't get hung up in the frame.

Highly recommended. Excellent quality. :D
