Default Fuel Pumps

Hey guys,
did any of you use a WRX or STI fuel pump on your stock tanks. I was thinking of running a 255 walbro on my Legacy tank until I get my swap done do you think it will fit. Problem is the pump went out so I figure I can buy the walbro now use it on my Legacy tank then go over to the WRX once the swap is complete... any feedback would be amazing!

The walbro is usually considered an upgrade over the wrx pump.
It will fit, and the kit you can buy comes with the pump and everything you need to swap it over easily.

Don't get covered in fuel when you change it over, release the pressure first, lol. Nothing is quite as dis-comforting as laying in the trunk and being sprayed down with fuel due to the residual pressure.

I take the rear seat out and do it from inside the passenger compartment. The STI pump IS bigger than the WRX pump so, it's an upgrade of sorts (I like the integral fuel filter). The walbro is bigger still. I'd probably get whichever one you can get cheaper.

Looks like I can get the whole walbro set up with the filter for 120+ I am going to get it and try it out, hopefully this fixes my problem. I already removed the rear seats. I have hit my head a few times on the rear strut bar though

^^^Much better than my "crawl around in the trunk" approach.
Live and learn....I always do things the hardest way possible. There must be something like a "Murphy's law" to explain it.

I tried it originally from inside the trunk but, the seat actually got in the way of inserting the STI pump (which is pretty damn big) so, I had no choice but to pull the seat. It does seem easier this way though. So, it was another accidental discovery.
