    I purchased a Walboro fuel pump, but it needs to be spliced into the line... I was assuming it would be an intank unit... The question I have is, do I splice it, and connect to the same power source as the factory pump?? Do I keep the factory pump on, or do I disconnect it, and only use the Walboro unit? If I only use the Walboro unit, will it pull the fuel out of the tank ???[sound like a dumb question, but I don't know if the pump works with block when it is not powered]

    Thanks...

    you bought an inline or an intank pump?

    if its an inline- you need to keep your stock intank.
    if its an intank, you replace that with your walbro

    Nah,

    its a 255 pump, but its not an intank unit... I believe I have to splice it into the line... however, won't the 255 pump efficiency be regulated by the stock pump? I mean, if the stock pump can only put out 80psi [or whatever] , than won't the walboro inline pump be regulated at the stock pressure as well???

    that's an in-tank dude.

    even according to the listing, you're going to have to modify it to fit in the crx.

    once you take out the stock FP, you will see the difference. Believe me, it fits because I am using the Wabro 255 lph HP in my crx right now. The model # is gss 342.

    well, it doesn't look like a drop in tank unit, and the model number is different than the one you have... I don't think it is meant to be used on a CRX, your part number is 342, yet the one I am looking at is 317... Do you think I would still be able to use it???? I don't know if this model will drop into an 88-91...
