How is this done properly? What do I need? I am tired of trying to aim to almost run out of gas as I arrive at the track. Thanks!

pull the sheader vavle out of the fuel rail, take some 3/8 hose and clamp it to the fuel rail.

unplug the under hood light at the connector, plug the power wire from the light into the plug coming out of the harness behind the altenator.
The Hood light connector and the fuel pump connector are male and female so you cant screw it up.

When connected the pump will run and let it run till the fuel comes out in a unsteady stream(bubbles and such), then you know the tank is empty.
There are more directions on how to do this on gnttype.org

Thanks for the help, but I'm having a hard time finding where this is explained on www.gnttype.org

I just want to do it right. I'm actually not sure what electrical connector I am suposed to be using. I though I could just tap into the fuel rail and turn the key to the on position. Could I possibly use the fuel rail gauge I have as part of my homade draining kit?

There are two wires coming out of the harness on the driver side that are not connected to anything. I think they may have been wrapped up from the factory but they are there.
