I was rolling up one of our risky 4x4 trails with my lady when my car started to buck and have low power as I hit big bumps. At first I thought it was a loose ground (wire, not trail) but all are tight. Later it did this on hard S-bends on pavement. Both times the fuel pump was making really nasty bathroom fan noises like the bushings/bearings were bad. The sounds were irregular in occurrence and duration. Time for a new pump - or two(?).
What would you run as a new fuel pump for an EJ22 (Phase II ~ 149hp)? I want this part to be really reliable, so I had the thought to run two pumps in parallel with check valves so they would both run and if one failed way out in the back country I could still drive out. What do you think of that idea, as well as the first question? Thanks.
p.s. The one that failed is from a Loyale - junk yard score.
