An old buddy of mine bought a "similar" filter that would fit in that same space below the pump from a local parts store.... He never had problems with it and it was like ~$9 or so. Just something to think about. Although, I'm not sure if the filtering (microns) was the same as OEM. I believe the sock catches most if not all the gunk anyways.

I can only find this one from subaru . Its the one right above the pump. My walbro came with the one below the pump which is why i thought i had replaced the fuel filter until i happened to run across info on this filter. I would buy a "similar" filter if you know where i can get one.

I don't unfortunately... It was about 4 years ago. What we did was take the pump out and take the filter from the car down to the local parts store to find something.

Replace the low-beam headlamps on my Rex.

Feedback from others is that although brighter, they don't seem to last as long as OEM items. It was a 50 $CAD repair, as they had both burnt out at the same time.

And as luck would have it, it was at night. The fog lights got me back home safely.

That's Fidrat. (my last name spelled backwards) Anyway, this is it. Pioneer FH-X700BT CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

The features will blow you away and it's only 150$. It also comes in a single din version.


With these speakers up front.Pioneer TS-A1305C 5-1/4" component speaker system at Crutchfield.com

And these speakers in the rear doors.Pioneer TS-G1044R 4" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com

Both are dirt cheap!

I highly recommend getting it from Crutchfield. They give you everything you need for a clean and quick install for free. And their tech support is second to none!

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

That sux, The money you saved wont add up to the money you will have to spend for the installation gear and shipping that comes FREE with a NEW one from Crutchfield. And no tech support? Good luck. Don't worry,you'll be able to make a harness with the help of the instructions that come with the HU. That is if the scratch & dent comes with instructions.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

Sorry auto correct! Haha gotta love it!
And the thing looks amazing, my head unit is the last thing I need to upgrade!
Right now I am running an eclipse 350 but it is about 3 years old
So I was looking at something like this or something that plays DVDs and all that, even thought I am mainly just a subwoofer and sound guy or watching movies haha
