swap and N20. gone. : (

Arrow Save your self time, frustration, and money and just get a SVX FPR!

OK, I finally decided to give up on trying to get my fuel pressure right by doing different things and got an SVX FPR ($93 at subaruparts.com) DO IT! it will save a lot of headache.

At first, I hooked it up and ran a vaccuum line to it and could get 32psi at idle but no matter what I did with the Cartech RRFPR, it would still climb to 90psi at 5psi boost. I figured this was due to the vaccuum hose going to the SVX FPR. The SVX FPR just couldn't stay open with boost going to it. does this sound right?

So, I disconnected the vaccuum going to the SVX FPR and could only manage 38psi at idle. However, now I can adjust my fuel pressure to where I get about 75psi fuel pressure at 5psi boost. That is pretty much what I want. I can't get lower than that though and I don;t gain much fuel pressure at any amount of vaccuum which should still be ok.

So, does this sound about like what everyone else is doing? is anyone running vaccuum to the SVX FPR also and not having a problem with fuel pressure rising to high with the Cartech?
Thanks

Eric

Yes, I did this mod and it's SOOO nice to see the fuel pressure drop to where it should be. Damn Walbro running it up there!

I actually got mine from the junkyard for around $35 + shipping. Also, an XT6 one will work just as well.
