    URGENT: fuel pump woes

    dealership says my pump and controller have gone bad. they say i cant just replace the pump its self, they have to replace the full assembly, but i dont want to. can i save myself 250 bucks and just get the walbro? i dont really have any engine mods and dont plan on heavy mods in the future. will the walbro screw anything up since they say higher pressure or more lph?

    where is the controller located, i cant find anything about it anywhere online.

    id really like to not have to buy the full pump assembly, so if theres any alternative, please let me know

What model? year? What mods are done to the car? I would find out exactly what they say you need replaced and ask them how they came to that conclusion ( what tests they have done etc etc....). As for the fuel pump controller I believe its located in the trunk behind the trim panels... I can say this, I'm kind of interested to hear how they diag. this fore I have worked on thousands of subarus and I have never once heard of or seen a fuel pump controller go bad...
