Default Issues, issues, issues.. trying to install stage 4.. and it just doesnt want to happn

Well, as the subject says, I'm having some serious issues installing the most simple things.

Lets start with the fuel pump, the stock filter bag was almost a deep dark brown in color, so I didn't reuse it, i used the filter bag that came with the fuel pump kit. Is this the wrong thing to do? I've heard people saying I 'need' to use the stock one and other people not knowing what to say.

The perrin inlet pipe install is just wayy too vague. Maybe its because I'm coming off of my weekend long buzz, but seriously, there is a T in the kit (that i'm supposed to install into the inlet pipe). What hoses go to that tee? I'm not talking about the big piece of hose that comes with the kit (that has the tee in it, although where does the other end of that go .. just to the other side pcv vent hose? or ?

I'm just super confused and flustered with this car. I take great care in installing things and ish almost always seems to break. For instance, when putting the fuel pump in, one of the nuts snapped right off, so now i have all the nuts tightened down except one.. is this going to cause a leak?

I seriously am trying to figure out what the hell to do with this car.. since day one it hasn't been good to me, even though I have been good to it.

Other than that, so long as that fuel pump cover doesnt leak I guess I'm alright, just the whole inlet hose install is getting me to scratch my head.. and I didn't do it for performance reasons, I chose to get a new inlet hose due to the fact that the stocker had a crack right down the side and I'm not about to go to subaru and complain, cause god knows, since the car's modified, I won't get anywhere with them.

Anywho, if someone could give me their .02. That'd be much appreciated.


P.S. If anyone has a pic of their perrin inlet installed and could forward me some closeups of where all the hoses go, that would be rad.

I agree that the instructions perrin gives with the pipe are horrible. I just went out to check how where are all the piping ran off the inlet pipe. I'll try to remember to post a picture when I get home from work.

I can tell you that the reason the 'T' fitting is there is because there is one less bung in the perrin pipe then there is on the stock one (and samco if i remember right). The long part of the T fits onto the PCV valve at the back of the manifold. One side of the T connects to one of the lines coming off the front of the IC (crackcase vent line maybe?) and the other side of the T connects to the inlet pipe. On the stock pipe, both the PCV valve and that other line hooked up to the inlet pipe directly.

Hopefully this helps, like I said i'll try to post a picture when i get home from work.

As far as the fuel pump goes, my kit didn't come with a replacement bag, and after i top of the tank I usually get a fuel smell in the cabin for about ten minutes, so i'm probably no help on that.
