I was hoping you'd chime in so thanks for doing so. I wish I had taken the time to understand exactly how the sump system works when I had it out. You can see through the plastic that there is a filter inside the top half that houses the pump. It looks like a rolled paper filter like what's inside the pre 08 STi filter housing. I don't know if this is filter is just used for fuel being sucked into the sump or if the return line flows through this or not.
