No. don't do it...this can only lead to a major electrical fire...run a second pump in tandem as an alternative~

I had similar problems with my 2000 GTP, the fuel pump resistor was bad. I jumpered it and drove it home. All the resistor does is run the fuel pump at a lower speed when the demand for fuel is lower. When more power is needed the system bypasses the resistor and allows the fuel pump to run at full speed. There really should be no problem bypassing the resistor except for a bit more wear on the fuel pump because of the higher speed. The resultant higher fuel pressure will be taken care of by the fuel pressure regulator.
