    So my fuel pump and hanger is kinda bad.

    Does anyone make a hanger for the AWD cars or are the only options dealer or junk yard? I've only been able to find the FWD versions in the aftermarket. It looks like the OEM AWD pump/hanger runs $400-500 from the dealer (if they even have it)..

    Is it possible to salvage a hanger/sending unit that looks this bad and just replace the pump?

    I didn't get the chance to pull the driver's side pump but it's probably just as ugly.

    So many fun surprises with this car :banghead:

    you can also take a brass wire brush to the metal hanger piece and see if it is completely rusted thru, if not then take it out clean all metal and replace the pump and put back just make sure its super clean

    and yea that is really bad i have also never seen one that bad but it is salvageable

    I dont see what would stop you from plugging the one pump side and just running a single pump if thats what you are getting at.

    No I was just saying that I was not aware they made just a single pump set-up, which I would like just to save on the price tag I would think. But yeah the way you mentioned works as well.

    you might have to drop the fuel tank and clean it or replace it cause the strainer is the color of rust so thats not good

    I would for sure clean the fuel tank by the looks of the hanger.

    and by the looks the hanger itself is salvageable, fuel pump is toasted for sure

    spend 10 bucks on some brass brushes or brass wire wheels and clean all metal then you wont have to replace the hanger

    Ya there's a bunch of crap that fell in. We're planning on dropping the tank and flushing it out. Can you drop it without dropping the subframe? Just exhaust and drive shaft?

    Thanks. Will give that a shot.

    There's so many fwd ones available for cheap but awd is so hard to find.

    I was in a similar situation as you about a month ago (although mine wasnt as bad). I ended up cleaning mine up, getting a new gasket and a fuel feed line (along with pump, strainer, etc). I priced out a whole used assembly and it was about $200 on average. There were about 3 for sale in the DSM Classifieds FB Group. I want to say RIX Racing had one, no sure if it sold.

    Thats a good question, unfortunately I am not 100% certain and I cant locate the Mitsubishi part number to confirm. All the 2G AWD assemblies I've seen appear to be identical with the same white connection on top of the assembly.

    You have to drop the subframe unfortunately. Just did mine. It’s actually not as hard or bad and you are probably imagining. There are pretty good YouTube videos and of course LOADs of info on here too.
