It’s a simple equation….more power requires MOAR FUEL!!! With the anticipation of building my Rav4 GT-T, I needed to prepare my fuel system. An upgraded pump was necessary, as well as a fuel return line.
For reference, Rav4 Fuel System Components:
I searched around the inter-web and came up with Deatschwerks, a company dedicated to high-performance fuel systems solutions. They sell affordable, high quality fuel pumps for a variety of applications and offer an industry best 3-year no fault warranty. But what I really like about Deatschwerks, is that they are a family own business, that stand behind the name of their brand.
I selected a Deatschwerks DW200 In-Tank Fuel Pump as my replacement:
- Flows 255 litres per hour
- In-tank application specific fitment
- Ethanol compatible
- 3-year no-fault warranty
- Quiet and reliable turbine impeller
Though this isn’t an exact video of a fuel pump swap, its a good visual illustration of how to find and remove the fuel pump from the Rav4. Definitely useful!
