Fuel pump fridays! Replaced my fuel pump with a good used unit with 103k miles that a friend let me have. The car ran great and boosted fine on the test drive of about 30 minutes. I returned home to get cleaned up a bit to go grab some food in the msp again. Right when I started the car, a flashing cel was thrown for p0300. Made no sense as it was running awesome just a little ago. Played with the spark plug wires a little bit and the car started back up fine. Not sure what the deal is. Possibly coils and wires is all I can think of. Let the car sit again for about an hour and it started up just fine. Drove it around for 20 minutes without problems. I've had my fair share of coil pack issues since I've owned this car. I might break down and just get OEM ones since there's no guarantee with these aftermarket units.
Was pretty dirty when I opened up the fuel pump cover.
Vacuumed and wiped it off a bit so no debris will fall into my gas tank.
3 of the 8 marshmellow head having ass screws wouldn't come loose so I sprayed it with pb blaster. 2 of the 3 then came lose and the very last one's head stripped. Ended up hammering the screwdriver onto the screw to try to get traction on the screw again but it didn't work. Tried the impact and it got the screw off luckily! Replaced all the marshmellow screws with M4x0.7x10 hex bolts.
Think I fixed it. I'll give it another week or so of testing to see if it's good. I lended my coilpacks and wires to Gabe but he returned them recently. Slapped those on my car and my random bogging and breaking up under boost (especially in higher rpm) went away. Time will tell.
