    my fuel neck had a hole rusted through it so I bought a new one but it's a different set up. Any advice on how to change it.

    That appears to be a FWD filler neck, which wont work with your AWD gas tank.

    I had the same problem GSX & GST fuel necks are different. Its almost impossible to find a GSX fuel neck .
    I used a fuel neck out of a 97 non turbo spyder found at a junkyard for like $10 minor modifications and all new extended fuel hoses but it worked.
    i would try miller import parts

    Good luck

    So there's no way to make this one work? Cause everywhere I look up it says it's the right one?

    It's different because it's not OEM, OEM o es do not have an eval can on it, yours does which is a copy part. It's tight in the wheel well anyway so the extra pipe is a big ask

    So y'all are saying that this part will not work at all. Correct.

    Pretty much, an OEM u it will be a bolt on and easy swap, I searched yours and it's roughly the same cost! Send this back and get an OEM unit

    How did you get to it like that? Did you have to take off the cross member and drive shaft?

    I used s
    after i replaced the fuel neck i coated it with rustoleum and under coat.
    i used some of the old mounting and hardware and had to buy new fuel hoses to make it work.
    I was replacing sub frame bushing & rear suspension shocks springs sway bar link & 3G suspension
    it was much easier to remove and replace with the rear sub frame out of the way.
