ok so the fuel pump on my beloved 3rs gen died, upon doing a tune up, i manage to strip one of the plug holes, i thought i had fixed it

this morning i finished installing my walbro 255lph pump, car fired right up after 3 gallons of gas

but... "ROOOOOM RRRROOOOM sputter sputter...fafft fafft fafft fafft."

great plug blew out , so i guess im going to get a kit that puts in a part that will fix the hole, they have it at advance auto

will update, if it really fucks up im just gonna pull the whole engine and rebuild

SHRINK your SIGNATURE NOW, or I will ban you until you do. You have 10 minutes.

Why put in the thread repair? Seems like a great excuse to build a new head to me.

Or there's always the 22R-TEC... :)
