I am running stock fuel rail and regulator. Will I need a new fuel pressure regulator with a new fuel pump. Will I need to cut or crimp any wires for the fuel pump install.

racetronix with hotwire kit is the way to go dont have to cut or crimp wires very easy instructions just make sure you have the two sock filters my racetronix kit came with them but some dont i got mine from ws6 store might as well replace the regulator while you have every thing apart

That is the correct pump for the 01. The jet nipple is clearly shown in the photo. Some vendors will say they offer the correct pump, but they are not.
With out the jet pump the fuel pump will not operate correctly.

I am running the same Racetronix pump with the hotwire kit, also purchased from WS6store. Works great! Pretty easy install too, as long as you don't have a full tank of gas... Good Luck!

Racetronix is good shit. Ive had 3 racetronix kits, and easy to install compared to others.

The 01 regulator is in the fuel pump module in the tank not on the fuel rail. No you do not need to change it.
