even a tiny amount of any sort of salt (NaCl is just one flavor) will make water somewhat conductive. most water has enough solutes in it to conduct electricity.

What in the world is this,from my understanding our stock pump already flow 255 lph so why the upgrade.When I first started playing with nos I called jeg and summit about a bigger pump,I was always told that the svx already have a 255lph pump.I may be wrong but that was the info I was given and also on a link about the good and bad about the svx.

Terry McLanes " The Subaru SVX FAQ " lists our factory pumps as flowing222lbs/hr, which is 37 gallons per hour or the 140 lph as Michael stated. Whatever you do you dont want to go lean at boost. Tom

That is correct,it was listed as gallons and not liters,so he must really plan on pushing over 400hp.I would have assumed the stock pump of being capable,but you know what happens when we assume,it makes an ass of you and me,I 'll be the ass this time for misunderstanding the info.

Yeah, as long as the stock fuel pump can hold pressure at full flow capacity, 140 liters/hr is enough capacity for at least 350 hp, it not 400 hp. It would be good to know the pressure rating of the OEM fuel pump at 140 liters/hr.

I'm not complaining. I didnt know about the fuel pump getting up-graded, but it's better safe then sorry. You should always leave a large safty margin. Never operate something above 75% of it's abilities. (Your car can run at 6000RPM, is it better to cruise at 2500, or Subaru have geared our cars to cruise highway speeds at 6000?)

My first thought was... "Gee, that fuel pump sure looks like an amp... I bet those red lines are the fuel hoses."

your no longer feeding the factory injectors so in order to allow them to function at a higher flow level you need consistantly higher fuel pressure as well. Not just tapping a big fuel line and spraying it in via a pill/fogger. feeding 6 instead of 2.

If any of you upgrade, or replace your fuel pump, BE VERY, VERY, CAREFUL!!!
The Subaru factory manuel says in what order to remove the three brackets, but not that they are held in place with a four fingered spring plate, or that they just lift out once the spring is gone.
Nor do they mention that one gallon of gasoline has the explosive power of SEVEN STICKS of DYNAMITE, (I'm sure some of you NAPA allready knew that).
Evan with the doors, the trunk, and the gas cap open,(I forgot the sunroof when I did mine ) there is still a very strong smell of gas/air in the car during the job.
Park your car away from any smoking buddies that might stop by. I also posted NO SMOKING signs on the car. And make sure you disconnect the battery before you do anything else (except the windows+sunroof ).
So be carefull out there. Tom

I'll have Di put photos in a locker and post when she does.

Please read WARNING in two posts. Thanks, Tom
