Hello

another expert here

1st thing to check is are you sure it needs a new high pressure fuel pump as they are very expensive - if you've measured the fuel pressure and its low then this is the best way to check

as even a good used pump is about $800 and brand new from nissan they are over $3500 plus fitting

the fitting isn't too bad a job but does need a special tool to set the timing correctly I'd budget for about 4-5hours labour to have it fitted

another option to consider is a refurbished unit as this will give a you a guarantee and a cost saving
