    I did learn a couple of things:

    • My unit out of the box there was a vacuum cable going from the passenger side of the EFI to the back full time vacuum port.
    • First, that hose needs taken off unless you are running a blower, and you do NOT cover the port on the side, you leave it open.
    • Second thing is the PCV vacuum port, and full time vacuum ports on the back are very close together and take some work getting a PCV, and smaller full time vacuum hose both on.
    • Third thing, the plug in the box for the return line looks too small, but is the correct plug if you are running return-less systems.
    • The fuel in can be at any of 3 corners on the unit, the exception is for the return (rear passenger corner).


    The wiring is going to be super easy on this system, 5 wires to wire in. Install the O2 sensor, the coolant sensor, and the fuel lines and it's ready to have the base setup put into the system and then fire it up. The hardest part so far was getting the twist-lok fittings on the hose.

    The sump was just a little bit too long (like 1") to go in the old charcoal canisters place, so I removed the overflow bottle and will be installing a round tube style aftermarket bottle in front of the radiator.

    Excellent! Keep us posted on the progress. I'm really interested in how the whole deal installs and works. Got one on my "wish list".

    Fuel lines are all done, wiring is hooked up but needs to be insulated and wire loomed again.

    The Cooling sensor is 3/8" threads and the port I have is 1/4" so working on deciding how to attack that and have to thread in the O/2 sensor still.
    I will have it all tied up this next week and do the first fire up.

    I had 5 wires to hook up, switched power, full time power, fuel pump hot, tach, and a/c kick up.
    I tied into the power I had already ran to the MSD box for switched and full time power, and had to tap the msd tach output wire.

    Only thing I suggest is that you solder and heatshrink those connections.

    might i suggest you remove the extra return springs (unless its for a rule restriction aka nhra requirment) i found with just the factory fitech spring that was more than enough with our factory pedal and cable i also checked with Fitech and they did confirm that no extra springs other than whats on it are needed

    They show the dimensions of the FiTech Command Center on Summit (est availability November 30 at this point) and was out trying to map it all out. I'm running out of room. I've already got stuff mounted behind the inner fender area (like the coil for example) because of space issues. As with yours, the factory overflow reservoir will have to go to make room for the pump module. The vapor canister also needs to be moved (most likely), but to where? Lots of head scratching to get it all to fit and look "right". Think I'm going to make a mock up of the pump module to get a better idea and see where I'm at. It's still better than having to drop the tank, add a return line and then have a noisy frame mounted pump and all the related wiring, relay, etc......and getting that to all look sanitary.

    BTW, anyone know what problems they were having with the Command Center? Curious is all.
