Dont waste your money on a fuel pump, it's not necessary until you get further into mods. I personally would pay someone 150 to install and just sit back and drink a beer.

They are going to kick themselves for quoting you $150. It takes a little time, especially the first time you install one.

You'll be stoked when you get that thing in, I have the same and love it.

Yeah, no need for fuel pump mods yet.

Start soaking your O2 sensors with WD-40 or the like if your going to do the install.

Did you mean PB Blaster :lol:

yes they will scream and curse like crazy if they are not an experience technician with a lift....$150 is very reasonable if they are a PRO and do it for a living

the tech who worked on my DP install is certified nissan/infiniti for 10 years.....he never touched an MS3 before and did my DP in 2 hours flat....this is at work with a lift....he just charged me $100 and he said everything went smoothly except the o2 sensor

I think I am down to about 2 hours on mine.. hopefully it never comes off again.

150 bucks is a fair price to pay... figure a shop would do it for about 300 (two hours shop time).
