Well that sucks. I have heard nothing but good things of fuelab. I have one sitting in my car now, just waiting on some things to finish plumbing the rest of the fuel system.

Ouch, sorry to hear that. Perhaps it is vacuum related? Are you setting your base fuel pressure correctly? I'm glad that I settled for the bolt-on AEM.

Good luck with the SX though!

Yeah I set everything right and it was good initially, but I don't know what happened. I think the spring somehow may have gotten unseated preventing it from pushing down on the ball

Dang!
I got one on my car and never had any issues. Just add one more thing to the list of "things to keep an eye on".

at this point, bad fuel pump or possibly a clogged filter, but the filter is practically new. i'm leaning towards fuel pump. there's a thread in general about it.

problem with fuel pressure... need help!
