Since these cars are getting long in the tooth, and most owners are hesitant to spend what Nissan wants for a new fuel canister assembly, I did some research and talked to a few people. I found out that the basic canister was available from third party suppliers, that were much cheaper than the actual Nissan canister.

While the canister/filter assembly can be had for under $100, I dont think I would trust my turbo build to a no name fuel pump in a cheap canister, or any build actually. What I came up with, was a cheapish canister I ordered from amazon. I disassembled the canister like you would the OEM version, and replaced the no name pump with my 2J unit, then reassembled.

This worked for a while, and I would consider it a successful test of cheap canisters, where the most important part, the new fuel filter, is very workable and on a stock build with a stock fuel pump, may last the remainder of the cars life and solve some issues with fuel pressure.

However, I did this in March, 2018, and in May, 2018, as I was in cruise control on the interstate, it started stumbling, quick glances at all the gauges showed it running very lean AFR’s. I pulled over and checked all the easy stuff, and could find nothing, so I limped it home at about 45 mph tops, easy on the gas, and careful to stay out of boost.

What I found, was the o’ring that goes on the pressure side of the regulator, had pushed out of the housing. several attempts at repairs were unsuccessful until I put a spacer UNDER the top o-ring on the regulator to get me by until a new canister came in.

After much research, I settled on an Airtex unit that had the regulator captured to the filter housing with a metal cage, so that it could NOT push the o-ring out. ($98)I also found a cheaper fuel canister o-ring for those that are on a very tight budget, ten bucks compared to Nissans 15 dollar one.
