    Can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position?

    Are you throwing any CEL's? From the looks of your previous posts that fuel pump looks real finicky. When you hear it does it ever stop priming? Should only hear it run for a little bit. Also when it was installed did they do a double oring on it? Could be just dumping fuel back into the tank. My money is that it has something to do with the fuel pump install.

    I keep getting system lean and I got a couple miss fires.

    After the fuel pump install, car ran great up until about a week or two ago. so its been a couple months of running good.

    It sound's like you are losing fuel pressure somewhere. I would start with the fuel pump as that is the only thing that is not stock. I would take it out and check everything, especially since it looks like they had a problem installing it initially. Also stay out of boost.

    Should I do it myself or take it back to the shop that did it???

    Also, I can't even really get into the boost, bc the car starts sputtering way before that

    Yourself. That place doesn't sound competent. I would almost guarantee it has something to do with the fuel pump. There are guides available, it isn't that difficult.

    I would take it back to the shop. The shop should be held responsible for the work that was performed. Attempting to resolve the issue yourself may give the shop a reason to point the finger at you.

    I'm real good "buddies" with the guy that did it, so I'll give him a call and see what he says. Since I just filled the tank up am I going to lose most of my gas?

    The tank doesn't need to be drained to do the fuel pump.

    Nope, but I ran my tank nearly empty before I did my pump... less gas everywhere
