That is the pump I ordered. I've had past experience with the Facet fuel
pump and that thing was incredibly loud, even with their soft mount. A
lower firewall mounting (about where the fuel shutoff valve would go)
would be the easiest location for me. That location is below fuel tank
level when the vehicle is on level ground.
