Correct, you have to change out the eyelets on the chassis wiring to one size larger, ex: 4mm /5mm to 5mm/6mm.

Highly recommended to split the power supply onto 2 separate circuits as the -044 fuel pumps draw more amps than the factory fuel pumps do.

The pumps also come with a spacer installed under the check valve which adds ~13mm to the length. This can be removed for a better fit.
However, use caution removing it; there's not a great way to hold onto the pump, nor is there a lot of room for a wrench. It is easy to break off a wiring terminal, rendering your new pump a paperweight.

Hose barb inlet adapter up front with a new copper crush ring, and replace the hose itself with a fresh piece of 12mm/0.5" ID fuel hose.

Threaded adapter in the back with new copper crush ring.

If you find the pumps noisy, rubber jackets are available.
The -044 pumps are *much* quieter than the Aeromotive A-series pumps (screamers).
