Arrow Those of you using Supra TT fuel pumps, please answer quick question!

Do you have used or new? Is the pump audible from the cabin? How much did it cost?

I found a used pump for $100, but I'm wary of getting it because used fuel pumps can be very LOUD sometimes (though may not exist with this particular pump). Please let me know what your experiences were.

Yeah, I saw that, that's why I'm going with the the Supra pump. It doesn't really answer my question of whether the used pump will be loud and annoying...

I got mine from Rallispec...don't really know if it's new or used. I can't hear it from the cabin at all.

Sure, I paid $250 for the kit with instructions from Rallispec. It came with all the necessary parts to make the pump bolt right in.

Our pumps are brand new. Come complete with all parts to retrofit to the Subaru and instructions to do it.

What's needed for it to bolt in? Am I going to have trouble if I don't get these parts from Rallispec?

There are instructions on what to do...perhaps Rallispec could send these to you...dunno.

You need to cut 1/2" off the bottom of the pipe that runs from the top of the fuel pump holder to the actual pump itself.

You need to trim part of the plastic holder for the fuel filter bag.

You need a large ring clamp to hold the new pump in place and a couple of small clamps to hold the rubber fitting on the pipe.

Oh, and a small clip to replace the stock fuel filter clip that you might destroy while removing the stock fuel filter.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email. Good luck!

Have a Nice Day?

If any part of the fuel pump touches the fuel pump bracket, you will most likely hear it. I bought a used RX7 TT pump for $100 and I can't hear it at all. I made sure that the pump used the original soft rubber base. If you notice how the original Subaru pump was installed, the pump body itself did not touch anything. It was completely insulated by the rubber base pad and upper rubber O-ring. When I installed the Mazda pump, I had to cut about 1/2 inch off of the existing down tube. That was because the Mazda pump was much larger and taller the the Sube pump. I installed the Mazda pump with a two inch section of high pressure fuel injection line and secured it with special fuel injection clamps. DO NOT USE THE SCREW TYPE CLAMPS. The pump has sort of a "loose" fit because of the rubber base and 2 inch section of fuel line, but it is very secure, and doesn't make a sound. I am VERY happy with the RX7 pump.
