Fuel pump & Filter Upgrade Kit 1GRFE & 2TR-FE
This fuel pump/filter upgrade kit is for the 2005+ Tacoma (1GR-FE V6 and 2TR-FE I-4).
It appears that this upgrade kit will also work on the FJ Cruiser and 2007+ Tundra (all engines), but it has not test fitted those applications to verify it at this time.
Note: The FJ Cruiser in South America is different from the US version. The South America version has the fuel filter in the engine compartment on the driver's side inner fender. This pump/filter upgrade is not compatable with those FJ Cruisers. Please check your filter location if out side the USA.
The heart of the fuel system is the fuel pump. It must deliver the volume of fuel needed at the required pressure for the rest of the fuel system to do its job. If the pump can't provide more flow, don't expect to have the fuel needed for more power.
One thing we observe time and time again is as the power levels go up, the fuel pressure starts to drop off. The stock in-tank fuel pump combo does not flow enough fuel to maintain a sufficient pressure in the fuel rail.
The small in-tank fuel filter appears to become clogged in less than 30,000 miles restricting fuel flow resulting in insufficient flow/volume reaching the fuel rail. This can lead to a dangerous, lean fuel mixture. Until now, the only fix for this was to buy an entire new "tank unit" from your local Toyota dealer. The fuel filter is not available separately and is only available as a complete tank unit that includes the plastic in tank assembly with the fuel filter, fuel pump, and level float. This retails for around $575.
There is a way to replace the in tank fuel pump with a high flow Walbro 255 LPH fuel pump and convert the small in-tank fuel filter with a large capacity external tank fuel filter that is easily replaced if needed. The new fuel filter can be replaced in minutes without having to go back into the fuel tank.
The Tacoma Fuel Pump/Filter Upgrade Kit fixes both problems, insufficient flow from the stock pump, and the problem of the stock fuel filter's short service life before it becomes clogged and restrictive.
If you have converted your 2005+ Tacoma engine to any type of forced induction system, we strongly recommends installing the URD fuel pump upgrade kit.
The fuel pump upgrade kit ships with:
- Detailed installation instructions
- High flow Walbro 255 LPH fuel pump
- External high capacity fuel filter
- All need high pressure fuel lines
- All needed hardware
