    I know for a fact that some of the Di hulls have a coolant tank hanger on the plastic seat support. And, the 02-03 GTX 4tec used the same size pump as the Di. I have also heard the 951 motor mounts...

    On a premix only system I've always run 32:1. Never had any problems. You're not supposed to be running WOT during break-in anyway. After that it's 40:1 in all my stuff.

    It depends on the fuel line being used. If you're using the colored/translucent poly line, then 4" zip ties will be fine. If you're using a thick walled, stiff, marine grade fuel hose....then you...

    Doubt the oil pump caused a failure, probably a rotted off oil tube. You can delete and switch to premix if you like. Have the machine shop look at the bad cylinder before doing anything. It might...

    You can rent a fuel pressure kit from the auto parts store. There is no test port. You must insert an adapter tee in the supply quick connect fitting. I believe it's a Ford type.

    If you have any sort of octane booster or drying product for water in the gas, the needle tip can swell and stick. Other than that, lower popoff to about 45psi.

    Yes, on the DI you can have fuel pressure and/or air pressure issues with no codes. I have also seen many DI's break one reed petal.

    Have you ever pulled the fuel baffle out? That style has a little trap door at the bottom that can get warped and hang shut. Just remove the trap door completely.
