Haven't done an update in awhile. So here goes.

I've had 24 lb injectors and a maf waiting in the wings to go on the coupe for awhile now. Debating on if the car actually needed them. Well that was put on hold.

I had noticed last week while driving to work (daily driven) that the car was just not running right. I had over time noticed that the fuel pump had been getting louder and louder. Not only that, but the car started running rough, I noticed when it was hot out side 100+ degrees that the car would ping and detonate. Which isn't good. That means running lean We all know what that means. Now when I did the clutch replacement, I found that the clutch was the original motorcraft (from 1990 LOL) so there was no doubt in my mind that the fuel pump was going to OEM. Low and behold...TAHHH DAHHHH yup. Original fuel pump.

So I figured I would upgrade the fuel pump to give me some growth potential. I went with a Walbaro 190 lph fuel pump. So I had my 2 favorite little helpers, helping their daddy fix THEIR favorite ride:

Lol, that first pic put a big smile on my face as my 2 youngest daughters are the same way. They love wrenching with me, even if it's just to hold the light. Good times
