    What's the capacity and how much modification will it take to get one in there?

    That seems like you might have a bit of fab work and may not be worth saving $90 over a Walbro OEM replacement. But hey, if you can rig it up and the fuel pump flows an adequate amount, go for it!

    its almost the same exact thing the only difference is the bag on the end and the connector for power but ive already got an adapter. the only reason I'm testing is because i got one from my friend for free

    So what does it flow?

    i know that the 3000gt vr4 can use a walboro 255 as well so do you think they are compatible?

    BTW, keep in mind that though it's a V6, the injectors are only 360cc so the total fuel demand is 2160ccs per every two revolutions of the crankshaft (w/ IDCs at 100%). The 2.5L WRX with 565cc injectors requires 2260ccs of fuel every two revolutions of the crankshaft, so the number of cylinders is a moot point.

    So my 03 overheats with a thermostat. If I just have a gutted one in there it doesn't over heat. I bought a gates thermostat. I have a mishimoto radiator, I've drove it for months without the car overheating with no thermostat why does it only overheat with one in there? Maybe the gates thermostat isn't any good?

    Where does the temp guage sit with the "gutted" thermostat in, and where does it sit with the normal thermostat in? It's likely, if the coolant is flowing constantly (as it would with a faux thermostat), that the car isn't getting up to operating temperature, which is bad. AND it probably takes forever to heat up even a little bit, also bad.

    Are you sure you got all of the air out of the system when you put the normal thermostat in? It takes longer to burp the system with a normal thermostat in because you have to wait for it to open before coolant circulates properly.
