    Not sure as to the benefit of either, I have always ran a intank, easy to install and getst he job done. I figure the inline woudl deal with a fuel cell.

    intanks support more, as it replaces the pump it self.

    inline is still restricted by the oem pump in the tank.. its just a booster i guess you could say

    an in tank replacement, such as the walbro, will be more reliable as it is surrounded by all that fuel to cool it.

    when installing an expternal pump, why on God's green earth would you leave the stock pump in the tank? external pumps are generally only needed when running severely high fuel pressure needs such as say 40 pounds of boost.

    rip out the rear plastics and youll see a kidney shaped panel ... take that off and youll see the mount assembly for the fuel pump
    umbolt that and pull the pump out SLOWLY (so you dont get fuel all over the place)

    then just swap the pumps and drop it all back in
