hey guys,

got my 044 fuel pump and just about to install its rather bigger than my last pump. looks like the regulator needs to be moved in order for it to sit in there and connect up. what parts and regulator should i get. and where should it go.

by the way the car was a standard sl before im at the end of the project more or less so help would be appreciated.

cheers.

im just reading the installation manual for the product and im getting confused. ahahah amaeture.

3. Remove your existing regulator
With your engine cool and ignition off you can now carefully
remove the fuel lines to and from you existing regulator.
You should take care with these lines to ensure no debris
enters your fuel system.
Disconnect the vacuum line and remove the existing
regulator.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
If your standard fuel pressure regulator is mounted directly
to your fuel rail then you may need to use an adaptor and
some EFI fuel hose to connect the fuel rail to the FPR inlet
port. Turbosmart supplies a range of adaptors to suit most
popular makes and models (see accessory table for details).
