EFI Fuel Pump Wiring?

I asked this question on the EFI forum, but it's more wiring and electrical related so I'll post here...

I'm a wiring novice but willing to do the reading and research...that said, I know a lot of you guys have installed EFI and/or electric fuel pumps and wanted your opinions. I have an EFI tank with internal electronic fuel pump and was curious how you run power to your fuel pump? Where do you tie into power and where do you typically run the negative/ground? It looks like using a relay may be the be the best option.

Obviously there are a lot of options but was curious what you guys have found to be the easiest/cleanest/etc? Thanks for any input.

Re: EFI Fuel Pump Wiring?

Start with power from the horn relay buss bar into a fuse then into the relay contact spade (NO = normally open) then to the contact swing, the pivoting arm, and to the fuel pump ower lead.
Bring ground lead out and tie into the same ground contact as fuel sending unit uses, on the pass side tank strap mounting,
On side of coil to ground and other side of coil to IGN spade of fuse panel.

Re: EFI Fuel Pump Wiring?

After actually reading the directions on the EFI throttle body and going through the wiring diagrams and wiring itself...the Sniper EFI unit comes with a fuel pump relay and wiring...so in short, I'm an idiot for asking the question. Lesson learned, read your instructions.
