If I understand your question correctly yes you should upgrade your fuel pump. The injected model fuel pump will work fine.

Use the Vent line as the return line.  Carb return line is too small.


Switch them at the tank.

My 86 gl coupe has an ej22, using an xt6 fuel pump. The car was originally a carb 1.8, using the same lines, although i had to make some adapter fittings between the body and the engine.


The fuel pump is connected directly to the car, and the ej harness is spliced into the bdy harness to run the fuel pump. I made my connection form the harness fuel pump relay to the body harness under the carpet near the door sill on the passenger side.
