    On the fuel rail there is a nut very close to the fuel pressure regulator. With a rag covering it, loosen it. This will relieve the built up pressure.

    Dropping the tank should be pretty easy. 2 tank straps and a few hoses and wiring connections. If you goto the access panel in the trunk, should be right up against the backseat or under the backseat, open it up. Un plug the connector and stick it with the excess wire into the hole. Then undo the hoses and crap and drop the tank. Take out the fuel pump, replace, reinstall reversing the steps.

    Remove the fuse for the fuel pump and run the car until it dies. Or remove your back seats, open the access panel, and pull the plug off the fuel pump and then run it until it dies. Either way, some gas will leak out and get all over the inside of the car and stink and if you smoke it will blow up and you will die in a blaze of glory.

    You have to drop the tank on the 94? I thought that was only Efs.

    when you get to the fuel pump under the seats, Locate the electrical connector, disconnect it start the engine and let it run until it stalls. also remove your gas filler cap, also if your car is 96 or older there should be a service bolt on your fuel filter,

    Definitely unplug the pump and run it, or use those cute little fuel line clamps. Their cheap and you will use them often.

    yes you do....the banjo bolt is a 17mm....DO NOT LOSE THE TWO COPPER O-RINGS.----you should actually replace these, but I've re-used them on cars before with no problem. Remove the other one with pliers because it's just a clamp holding it. It's easier with a set of 45 degree or 90 degree pliers.

    According to the factory manual, you are also supposed to replace the gasket. I've never done that either.

    Torque spec on the banjo bolt is 21 ft. lb
    Torque spec on the 10mm fuel pump cover bolts is 4 ft. lb.

    Acura PN for a Integra for the pump cover gasket is: 17574-SE0-000 - need 1
    Acura PN for the banjo bolt copper gasket is: 90428-PD6-003 - you will need 2

    Honda PN for an EG pump cover gasket and banjo bolt copper gaskets are the same.

    Good Luck.
