Buy that! You can go on ebay or summit racing and get a new plate kit for it to make it 8:1 for 30 bucks. Yeah, all MAP EJ22/25's, you would want the 12:1 but it's lower for MAF subarus, like ours.
There is some special rate or group buy on rs25 right now. A vendor is selling those fuel pumps for 90 shipped. I never ran into lines blowing up because the install kit for the fuel pump gives you a new in tank line, I have a stainless line right off the FMU, and a brand new line right off the FPR.
