any actual pictures of this hose coming off.
I did not take a pic when I noticed mine had come off. Just picture the hose sliding off the little nipple on the intake manifold

I found that for my car, the hose doesn't completely go all the way to the bottom... Doesn't look to be firmly connected... should I go about pulling the hose all the way down then zip tie it? It's too hot to touch now.

Apologies for the weird angle.

guys i just had the car on the road for a couple of hours... i got tuned in september for high 10`s and 11`s under WOT which i was holding in any gear with some early 12s at worst... (all these months no worries)
all day today i was letting the throttle off as my car would hit 10`s and then quickly climb and i would let off at 13`s when the wideband still goes up....
and at idle my wideband registers 17`s and sometimes even does not register as opposed to my usual high 15s...
is my fp relay out.....
i talked to meat_evo earlier and he told me to drive the car and make sure it is not the weather conditions.. but this evening i kept on driving and it turned mild 51 degrees outside... the situation didnot change...
i am pretty sure i lean out like insane both in idle and under WOT...
my question is?
relay?

Swap it with the highbeam or horn relay and check your wideband.

I just called south coast mitsu

I call my dealer ship and They told me the fuel pump relay part number that was showing up in the system was 8627A024 which is different then the one the horn relay. I'm going to go take a look at it today.

I was having a problem with this relay working intermittently when I first got the car. I just pulled the relay and jumped terminals 30 and 87. Haven't had a problem since, and that was about 10,000 miles ago.

Some people worry about the pump and fuel getting too hot running full voltage all the time, but as long as you aren't running the tnak nearly empty for long periods of time i doubt there will be any problems with overheating of the fuel or pump. Heck on the supras we run twin walbro 255s at full voltage all the time and never have any problems with them.
