I need a new fuel pump and am considering a supra pump - anyone know if it's too big or a pain to install?

first of all, how do you know. &nbsp;Second of all, I know for a fact that no supra owner has ever ditched his stock pump to put in the Z32 pump. &nbsp;I assume that we are all talking about the MKIV supra pump here. &nbsp;The MKIV pump is one of the highest capacity electric pumps made. &nbsp;The only pump that those guys ever upgrade to is the walbro high pressure 255l/min. &nbsp;even that pump isn't too much of an upgrade for them.
you probably think the 300zx fuel filter you have gives you 10 more hp, I have the stock filter and more power.
read more, post less, it's a good lesson

sorry, back to the original question. &nbsp;The supra pump will be fine if you can get one cheap or something. &nbsp;You don't need more then the stock fuel pump unless you are making more then 250rwhp. &nbsp;If the stock pump is more then $100 then you can get the regular walbro pump 190l/min for about $90 with the brackett that you need. If you are making, or planning on making more the 250rwhp, then consider the walbro high pressure pump. &nbsp;However, you will need a new FPR since the stock FPR can't flow enough to keep the pressure down to 35psi at idle. &nbsp;I am planning on doing the 190l/min pump since I don't want to get a new FPR, it looks like it should be okay with the calculations I've done so far. &nbsp;It's good for four(4) 700cc/min injectors (or so)

yeah - i have a friend who works for toyota and he said he could get me the supra one for cheap (and fast!<img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'> which was why I was considering it. &nbsp; &nbsp;

Thanks for the feedback - very helpful <img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

Might actually be faster to get one of the Walbro units designed for the car. I don't know how much modification is involved with putting the Supra pump into a 240 but the Walbro's are pretty much plug-and-play. As for cost, it depends on what convenience and speed of delivery + install is worth to you. Not saying you shouldn't try it, but there may be better options.
