93 Legacy no power at all under load, will idle, ignition relay?

Testing purposes??    That is what a gauge is for.

 

Used pumps are in the same catergory as used toilet paper as far as I am concerned.

 

Measure volume w/a quart jar.

 

You are making this more difficult than it needs to be.

I never mentioned a used fuel pump. I did mention a used fuel pressure regulator if need be. The link I posted is for a new pump. For the price just switch the pump being its 20 years old. Not expensive nor............difficult at all in my opinion.

Volume is fine if the pump holds pressure under load. < the reason you drive the car with the pressure guage hooked up is to see if fuel pressure drops off. If pressure drops its because pump cant move enough volume to keep pressure up.

Rent a pressure guage from the auto parts store if you don't have one.

Just an update: found a local garage that is able to data stream a 1993. The cam sensor and crank sensor were not in sync. On further inspection found the crank pulley bolt had backed out slightly. The crank gear notched out the key slot in the crankshaft causing the timing to be all over the place. The engine is done. Thank you to everyone for the help!
