    As above, just fitted my Inline fuel pump complete with foam insulator where the fuel filter usually goes, and bloody hell i cannot believe how loud they are, surly you peeps that have fitted them cannot live with the whirring noise in and out of the car? i will take a vid tomoz, but this cannot be right, and no before any body asks, it is not touching the bodywork and is insulated and cable tied.

    not got a clip Dave, but I know from past experience that they tend to be pretty loud!

    Don't remember hearing it in Tuftys or Wellys cars though, not offensively loud anyway

    Is your fuel pressure stable?
    If it looks and sounds anything like this, i believe you also need a new intank fuel pump.
    Bosch 044 - YouTube
    I too had problem with fuel delivery on boost so i decided to junp the guns and fit an inline pump, but the intank was so nackered that she couldn't feed the inline and was sucking air, hence the noise and pressure fluctuation.
    Hope it helps.

    that sounds like its scavenging Dave,.... struggling to get its inlet flow demand satisfied.. (remember its a smaller inlet on your pump for some reason... M18 on 044/DA-31)

    PS... empty your inbox.. I need to contact you
