Default Walbro Fuel Pump Install

Hey,
I am about to change the fuel pump in my 2000 RS to a Walbro 255lph pump. I found instructions on scoobymods.com and it all seems fairly easy but I was just wondering if there are any extreme safety issues if the install is incorrect. No exploding gas tanks, right? Thanks a lot!

Its a breeze. Nothing really to worry about, just be sure not to sit in the trunk with the fuel fumes too long...

Question Installing on a APS Club Spec WRX

I have recently installed the APS Club Spec Kit. What is the impact of performing this install? Will the Walbro pump push more fuel to the engine that what the car is "tuned" to receive? Will I experience any stalling or flooding?

the walbro will only pump as much as your ECU has been tuned to pump. the walbro is basically similar to your stock fuel pump except for its capacity.
