    Speaking of gas tanks, I'm gonna have my bed off at some point before getting my topper next month to do some prep and was thinking it would be a good idea to do some preventative maintenance and maybe replace the fuel pump and/or seals on the gas tank.

    Outside of the fuel pump bracket gasket, anything else I should consider?

    For fuel pumps I was thinking this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B012HRFKTE/?coliid=I1S07MK0XZD0NR&colid=3ESYMS3TDFE82&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
    I'm not boosted or anything, but I figure it would be good to just get a higher performance one so if I ever do wanna do boost down the line I won't have to mess with it again.

    @Digiratus don't you have the same one?
    I'm staying away from Walbro since I've heard they're kind of loud and some people have problems with them.

    Yessir! That's the one I am running. 22K so far without any issues. Though not totally silent, you can barely hear it on a hot day out on the trail, it is way quieter than my buddies walbro in the same situation. But to be fair, he's had no trouble with his.

    Good to hear. I'm ok with a little noise.
    Are you boosted?
    How was the install of it?

    I've done a mod or two
    I too ran one and will continue to use them for pump swaps in the future, good quality and price.

    I am not boosted, but I have considered it. So still an option for the future. Now that I've done it, the install wasn't too bad. You will have to splice in the OE connector, I soldered mine. And you'll have to shorten the OE bracket's pickup tube a little bit because the Aeromotive pump is a little longer than the OE pump. Everything else is a straight swap. Here a a couple of pics to better describe it.

    What did you replace it with? I’m at 100k on my stock radiator and noticed it gets hotter than it used too. Was thinking it would be a good time to replace it

    Awesome. Thanks for the pics!
    I can't imagine the 3rz fuel pickup being any different from the 5vz one.
    I believe the bracket gasket on the top are the same between the two motors.

    luckily I still have my old OEM laying in the garage so I just tossed that back in. Haven't replaced it since. Still works just fine. Offroad things get toasty but doubt there is much to be done there anyways.

    I did the same thing with the AEM 50-1000 pump. Pump is quiet and I also agree that the install isn’t too bad.

    just try to do it when you’re low on gas if you have to drop the tank.

    If it sucks with your hands you can always try your feet.
    Running that with boost and 7th injector. Seems to be able to deliver plenty of fuel
