    Fuel Pump Filter

    Those are tough to press on. I found that a strategically placed hose clamp held the pump in place while pressed the sock on (remove the clamp when done).

    I remember having trouble finding the right pigtail for the backup sensor. Modern Driveline has them.

    Hey David. Good memory. Yes, I did use a "zero take-out" IRS pallet for my 20th Anniversary build. That was early in the game and Ford Performance

    On the Mk4 it is an even bigger issue due to the shape of the wheelwell being

    Cruzzz,
