Default Quick Help! Fuel pump

I am installing my 255 fuel pump on my 2007 wrx. I got the assembely out and everything, but there is a big black thing that looks like a fuel pressure regulator or something in the way. I can take the old pump out, but when I try to put the Walbro in, it does not fit. I checked all the install guides, but none of them deal with a 2007.

2005+ have the fuel filter inside the fuel assembly
So you would have to cut off the end of the fuel filter nipple (that connects to the fuel pump) so the walboro will fit in (also use fuel hose clamps)

My friends and I have done this to our cars.

BTW, don't cut off too much, measure it first so u can tell

the only thing you have to cut here is the tube connecting the pump and the filter. cut it down so it will fit between them, put both bases in the assembly so that where they connect is angled up, and push them down until they are back in place. no wierd modification is needed to fit that pump on the 06-07 bracket.

+1.....i installed my pump yesterday with my 07 wrx and thats the problem that took me long is the fitting of the pump...i did the exact same way as you said no special modding needed..cut the tube to the size that fits push it in and your good to go...took me an hour to figure this out

I just went through this a couple weeks ago. You'll have to cut down the tube that connects the pump to the other part and actually butt the two ends together. Mount the the pump first and then pull back on the barcket until the two ends meet. Got mine done and it works fine.
