Autozone has an FPR for $81. https://www.autozone.com/fuel-delivery/ ... 0_594834_0

Made by GP Sorensen? (Owned by SMP... publicly traded on NYSE and located in Long Island City, NY!)


Rockauto sells the same one for $82...

Do you know if anyone has used this aftermarket part? Will try to look at his over the weekend when it isn't 700 degrees out there...

That's a fuel rail-mounted FPR, are you saying yours has that style? If not it can be made to work for sure, there are lots of ways to get an FPR in there, but if you want to use the existing setup your first step will be to identify what's already in the car. Yours probably has a damper at the rail and FPR in the fuel line, located down at the rack. Give it a look! Then decide if you want to go with that arrangement or something else. Apologies if you already did and I'm missing the point ...

Erik is very patiently reminding us we have the wrong part.

Is the vacuum characteristics of the fuel and rail mounted FPR the same? Should be.

Could be a nice retrofit to document if the rack mounted one is junkyard only.
