Well I'm still using the old fuel tube. It's holding pressure good. I didn't find any R10 rating hose. I got some R9 in my trunk with 2 hose clamps in case of an emegency. I still haven't heard from racetronix about them sending a new tube. I guess if i don't hear from them soon I will have to buy the R10 hose online or a new tube. Will worm screw clamps work for the R10 hose? Anyone know the model number of the walbro pump(just the pump)? I will like to have a spare one just in case for my 98 TA.
One thing that i'm noticing is that when I fill up the tank it shows like 1/8 down from full and while I drive for the 1st 20 miles it slowly starts to go up. Weird.

don't use that R9 if you can help it......it'll degrade in the tank and cause more problems than it's worth. Your NAPA didn't have the R10? The ones around here do although some of the counter guys don't know the difference between R9 and R10. Worm gear clamps should work fine on it.
That issue with the gas gauge is a fairly common one. You could try to run some cleaner through the tank and see if that helps....resistor for the sender could just have some build up on it.

yeah none of the guys at the counter don't know crap about the difference between R9 and R10. I think my fuel gauge issue is more that I might bent the float arm slightly when I tried to get it out while I attempted to drop the tank. When i fill up to the neck I'm reading close to 1/8 less than full. Like is out of adjustment. Not a big deal that makes me have more spare fuel on the reserve side. I might try to adjust the arm slightly. I'm not using the R9, I have it as a spare tube in my trunk in case the other one breaks while on the road. I wanna get a spare pump too just in case, I just need the model number.

man still no reply from racetronix except that I can post anything o help other members. I mean they have the right to do that but how about you answer my PM's and posts??? lol i don't get it. I'm really not too happy with their costumer service so far. I hear all the good things about them and I'm going to experience the quality of their products which I read that alot of people support but as far as costumer service I'm not too impressed...
Now if you wanna talk about awesome costumer service I have to give props to TunedbyFrost.com and UMIperformance.com.
Frost answered all my questions and even when he realized that made a mistake he paid for overnight shipping both ways to get the PCM back to me ASAP due to my DD situation. That's awesome service!!! Not to mention the difference in my car
UMIperformance answered all my questions quickly and sent my items super fast too. Great products!
