Hey guys help here fuel pump headaches, what is the better thing to do or what have you guys done, have you all gone external or dropped your tanked and placed an enternal, ideas and reasons why please!!!
5N4FU

I myself droped my tank and put a walbro 255 in, i wont lie it was a pain in the ass (cause i had half a tank of gas) but it wasn't  hard.

End of the day i think it would be more work to install a external, unless you are doing a fuel cell set up.
thutmose

Ok cool and no problems right it runs good ?

Yep, there is only 2 wires that go to the pump, as long as you dont hook it up backward you should have no problem, it wont burn it up or anything it will just run backward. This is all assuming you dont use a oem pump, if your are then u just plug the new one in and you wont have to wire anything

There's a big + or - next to the terminals on the pump, so it should be pretty clear.

Ok thanks well I'm gonna look around and see if I get a walbro 255 and see about dropping the tank would let you know my progress

Just make sure you get the "EF" install kit with it
thutmose

What's the specific with the "EF" kit
5N4FU

well if you get a pump its just that...a pump, the kit is the fuel sock, isolator, wiring blah blah
thutmose

Urgent help

Hey guys what's up urgent help needed windscreen needs changing what other cars eg crx, ef9 windscreens are interchangeable!!! Ps sorry if I didn't do a search I'm frantic
projEKtjokes

Only sedan and wagon windshields are interchangeable, crx and hatchback are both different unfortunately.

Do you know this or is it just an assumption?

The wagon roofline is drastically different to the sedan, i would say that the sedan windshield is unique and not interchangeable with other models.
projEKtjokes

Please excuse my disinformation lol it was early. Sp33 is correct they are all unique.
thutmose

Thanks for the info guys have been able to sort about 2 so waiting for the best deal, yea gotta admit everything is unique in there own way
