Ford sell the genuine ones for $262 and marlows sell them for $199, the MPFI ones anyway....

the CFI ones are slightly more expensive.

good luck

i just read your actual post


get it quoted at a mechanic and then do it yourself

should cost you nothing for them to check pressure and do an electrical codes test.

cheers

Do you live in Melbourne? If so, I can get MPFI fuel pumps from Bosch for $110. That's at least $90 cheaper than anywhere.

re

Just on the topic of fuel pumps,

After reading technocats nitrous adventure, i decided to investigate it myself - i emailed to rob madden of oznos, and he reckon'd i'd need a "6lb" fuel pump to be able to run a 150 HP shot of giggle gass......what does this mean?

thanks,

fuel pump

I've just been through this saga. symptom was intermittent no start (which finally became permanent)
Anyway, its a 1 hour job, the only annoying part of which is replacing the giant clamp round the tank sender cover. a second hand pump was $90, but with some slight mods to the insulator and pickup a skyline pump is now doing the job (its also a bosch pump) fuel economy and power output appear unchanged, but i will change it for a genuine pump soon because the pickuop sits a bit higher causing surges once the level gets below 40k's on the trip computer. get used to the lack of power on hot days with the A/C switched on. muti point cars seem worse but all seem to do it.+
