    So long story short, on my swap for my 2007 I was going to run my stock sending unit with a return bung, I did that but the fuel pump i bought as way to big for the housing and wiring it would have been a little ghetto. I bought a deatschwerks sending unit since its convenient for aftermarket use, and somehow it doesnt fit but it seemed like the internet was certain that 05-09 tanks were the same as 11-14.

    So basically between the pump and the sending unit I'm pretty deep in debt with no solution, its the only thing holding up the project from being done. The sending unit might fit if it was modified but I'm not sure if thats a good idea, I thought about returning it but it seems like they dont do returns. Not really sure where to go from here to make this work, all the 05-09 setups are limited and expensive (Like $1000). Only solution I can think of is maybe putting an 11-14 tank in the car? Might be the best thing to go for.

    By sending unit, are you talking about the gauge sending unit or are you talking about the fuel hat? Or something else altogether?

    For my LS swap I added a return https://www.instagram.com/p/CNQwDaeFCCV/ I had to modify the venturi valve to utilize the 2nd half of the tank that's what the bit of hose is for

    Not sure how the coyote fuel system is setup, I thought it was a return style though I could be wrong
