OVERVIEW
The Radium Engineering FHST (fuel hanger surge tank) is the ultimate solution for fuel starvation issues in the Nissan Z33/V35 chassis. Due to the saddle-bag style OEM fuel tank and insufficient baffling, fuel starvation is common when the vehicle is driven aggressively, such as on a track. This results in unstable fuel pressure and possible engine damage from running too lean. A stand-alone surge tank is an excellent device for eliminating fuel starvation issues. But installing a stand-alone FST is difficult specifically in the 350Z due to the open-cabin design, and lack of a firewall between the driver and the rear of the vehicle. So Radium Engineering chose to create a fully functional fuel surge tank INSIDE the OEM tank.

The Radium FHST can be used with 1 or 2 aftermarket pumps and supplies 1:1 regulated fuel to the engine. No grinding, bending, or modification of the vehicle's sheet metal is required. Furthermore, the system is compatible with alternative fuels such as E85.

HOW THE FHST WORKS
The OEM fuel module contains the pump, fuel pressure regulator, filter and has 2 venturi jet pumps that supply fuel from both sides of the tank. However, the OEM fuel module still suffers from slosh resulting in an interruption of the engine's fuel supply. 

The Radium FHST is the best solution in preventing fuel starvation. It installs in the opposite side of the fuel tank from the OEM fuel module and works together to keep fuel delivery consistent in all conditions. The OEM fuel module receives an upgraded fuel pump which is used to send fuel to the Radium FHST keeping the collector box filled. The OEM venturi jet pumps will still function as designed scavenging fuel from the bottom of the tank. The FHST pump(s) are used to supply fuel to the engine through an integrated fuel pressure regulator. As described below, the FHST pump(s) are supplied with fuel from 3 different sources: the pump in the OEM fuel module, the integrated fuel pressure regulator return, and 355LPH one-way fill valves on the bottom of the collector box that allows fuel in, but not out.

NOTES: 
1. The OEM venturi system must be used with the Radium FHST. 
2. The OEM fuel module must be upgraded to a pump with at least 340LPH (@ 40psi) rated flow in order for the venturi system to work correctly.
3. Do NOT modify the OEM FPR or OEM venturi jet pump.
4. Starvation will NOT prematurely occur, but the fuel level gauge will not read accurately. 


INTEGRATED FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR
Because the Nissan fuel system is "returnless", forced induction tuning can be problematic when a 1:1 fuel to boost pressure ratio is not possible. Like the OEM setup, a fuel pressure regulator (FPR) is integrated into the Radium FHST. The difference is the regulator is externally mounted with an adjustment screw and a vacuum port. If an intake manifold vacuum hose is connected, the FHST's built-in fuel pressure regulator will operate at a 1:1 ratio permitting fuel pressure to proportionally increase with manifold (boost) pressure. Conversely, the vacuum port can remain open to atmosphere and pressure will remain constant (like OEM).

The returning low pressure fuel from the FPR is sent back into the FST collector box keeping it full. Also, 2 fuel return orifices are included for fine-tuning the desired fuel pressure to the fuel pumps' flow rate and potential hose plumbing restrictions. Refer to the installation instructions link above for more details.
NOTE: The Radium integrated regulator should be the only FPR in the fuel system.


PLUMBING
To clear the OEM LH cover plate, the 8AN ORB threaded feed port and 6AN ORB threaded inlet port feature pre-installed low profile 6AN male fittings. The 6AN ORB threaded FPR port is plugged and is only to be used if 20-0806 is purchased.

While the pump "OUT" fitting can always be changed (if necessary), the FHST "IN" fitting cannot be changed. The "IN" fitting incorporates a unique component that is required for the venturi system to work properly.

Two 6AN fuel hoses are provided to mate each side of the fuel tank units together. The system provides all necessary adapter fittings to reconnect the OEM fuel feed line. For high flow applications, it is recommended to run a large 8AN fuel feed line from the FHST to the fuel rail(s). Part number 20-1000-0808 8AN adapter fittings can be purchased separately and installed into the FHST "OUT" port. A custom 8AN fuel line will also need to be configured and assembled by the installer. 

Sock filters are used on all fuel pump inlets. And because the FHST does NOT eliminate the low micron OEM post pump filter, a downstream aftermarket filter is recommended, but not required.


ELECTRICAL
The custom designed stainless electrical studs easily handle the high current demand that compact multi-pin bulkhead connectors lack. These serviceable connections are hermetically sealed and impervious to all standard and exotic fuels. Non conductive anodized aluminum acorn nuts are provided to prevent any accidental short circuiting. Electrical hardware is included for the fuel pump(s) and OEM level sender. Furthermore, the in-tank wiring is insulated with high quality chemically resistant ETFE.

This kit includes 1 relay, 1 fuse, and all associated wiring and hardware to install 1 surge tank pump. 


PUMP COMPATIBILITY
Brushed and brushless fuel pump options are available for the FHST. The system is suited, but not limited, to the following fuel pumps:
Walbro F90000267 E85
Walbro F90000274 E85
Walbro F90000285 E85
Walbro GSS342 255lph
AEM 50-1200 E85
Deatschwerks DW440 (brushless)
Bosch BR540

Make sure you are selecting the correct option for the style of pumps you plan to install. This ensures the correct electrical connectors and other small parts are included. The kit will come partially assembled and there will be enough components included to run one or two surge tank fuel pumps.


INCLUDED
The comprehensive kit includes all parts necessary to complete the installation including a pressure gauge, external fuel hose, fittings, electrical fuse, relay etc. The user must purchase fuel pumps separately.

20-0806 FUEL HANGER FPR BLOCK-OFF
This new Radium fuel pump hanger can be converted from a built-in regulator dead head system, to a return style system. We understand some users want to run an engine bay mounted regulator with a return line back to the tank. This kit makes that possible. The parts in the kit disable the built-in regulator allowing the use of an external regulator elsewhere in the system. The hanger top plate features a return port that can be used for the return line from the external regulator.


As shown above, a FKM O-ring, anodized aluminum plate, and stainless steel plug are included. NOTE: A 6AN ORB fitting is required for the return port in order to attach a hose. Keep in mind, this fitting must be low profile (20-1000-0606 shown below).

NOTE: A fuel pressure regulator (not included) must be installed downstream in the system. This procedure is not discussed in the instructions. 


Note that the fuel pump in the OEM basket MUST be upgraded to flow at least 320 LPH at 3 Bar for this system to properly work. This pump is now repurposed as a "lift" pump that fills and maintains fuel volume in the FHST through a calculated orifice in the FHST "IN" fitting. This keeps the required pressure for the venturi jet pumps to be active and deliver fuel to the lift pump. When a low demand of fuel is present, the FHST canister will overflow back into the LH side of the OEM tank. Fuel will then cycle back into the FHST through a 1-way fill valve integrated to the bottom of the FHST. Unlike traditional surge tanks that rely heavily on surge tank pump and lift pump flow matching, the FHST uses an extra source that negates this important relationship. No matter what is dynamically changing with the other 2 fuel sources, the high flowing 1-way fill valve will constantly supply fuel to the FHST canister until the LH side of the gas tank becomes extremely low. At this point, it is up to the lift pump and the FPR to supply the last few ounces of fuel to the FHST.
