I got my FPR two weeks ago through Ebay.com. Almost thought my Rs 1300/- ebay bargain wouldn’t turn up when it arrived. As I hadn’t fitted a universal FPR earlier nor seen one and the same being true for my mechanic we took some time figuring it out and finally had it fitted. On the initial fitment it worked fine on idle and set the pressure at 42psi there was a small leak from the FPR so I had to dismantle it and refit it. But then it started pulsing or the pressure wouldn’t hold steady at 42. I dismantled it and fitted it again and things seemd to work fine. We took it for a spin the car seemed to rev smoother and seemed to have a very linear throttle response.
Finally I drove it back home and while flooring it the car just sputtered to a stop and the accelerator wouldn’t work. I shut off the engine and opened the bay to find that one of the fuel pipes from the fuel rail to the regulator had busted. There was fuel sprayed all over and I thanked myself I dont smoke. Thankfully no smokers came near the car either or else I would have had a fried car. Anyway I just cut short the busted fuel hose and again took it back home and again the same thing happened. But this time a pucture had occured in the middle of the hose. I realized that it was a mistake to use a normal fuel hose from the fuel rail to the FPR I had borrowed one from the Maruti. It was not takine the pressure. On closer observation I realised that the OE fule pipe from the pump to the regulator is a very thick one compared to the return so my summation is that I need to get a thicker fuel pipe that can handle the pressure. I am now trying to source the original fuel pipe as its hard to come by. Else I will have to use a industrial grade one.
But my 2 cents its a helluva dangerous thing for fuel to leak so if you are buying an FPR get a branded one like OBX and FSE and sleep easy. Mine works fine but Im busing myself a Ceasefire just n case.
So I’m back to running stock and since I have my hands full for the moment will have to see when I can get back to finishing off what I started tll then adios.
