Inline fuel pump install

Does anybody have any good info on how to install a walbro 255 inline fuel pump in my v8 swapped v6 car with a racetronics Hotwire kit?

Do I need to remove my stock pump? Where does the pump even need to go? I'm lacking a lot of info on this as you can probably tell lol. Any help would be awesome

why not replace the pump in the tank rather than adding one in line?

do you happen to have a part number of the pump? maybe it is the same one that goes into the tank (doubt it but maybe)

Would it be worth it to sell the inline and buy a in tank replacement? Does the in tank require a Hotwire kit also?

Doing it right is priceless... Well much better than doing it half *** at least. Yes the in-tank pump still has to be hotwired

I will do it right, I just thought the inline pump would have been considered doing it right lol. Especially because I already have one. So sell the inline, buy a in tank and a Hotwire kit, and drop the tank and install it...

I'm guessing this will still work with my corvette regulator for the v8 swap?

Yup... And unless the corvettes have a weird regulator, that's a fuel filter you took a picture of with the pump
