Which is a handy thing to know if you have one of those sealed gas tanks with pump inside, where the whole tank needs to be replaced. If you don't mention this, you can end up paying full price (which is insanely high).

There is a coolant hose that should be removed to gain access to the pump. Most DIYers work around it. Apparently the dealer just goes by the book.

Nice! I may have to go to your dealer if my similar set up shits the bed.

I think the fuel pump had been failing for a while. The car feels like it has another 20 horsepower from 6k to redline since getting it back. I am not complaining.
