New fuel pump

Hi,

I want to get a new fuel pump, and probably want a walbro one, but which one should I get? Or is there another brand thats better?

After I install the fuel pump, are there any other adjustments I have to do before i can go on the road or is it a plug-n-play type of mod?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Plug ans play, get the kit and not the bare pump.... its a lot quicker cause you can get a new sock etc.....

^^Good kit and reputable company^^ and a solid recommendation.

You could take a look at AEM pumps too if you want. On paper, they outperform Walbros. But you can’t go wrong with the kit linked above. I have a Walbro 255 in my tank, and an AEM 320 sitting on the shelf as a backup.

When you change your pump, don’t forget to order a new o-ring for the housing cover.

Another option is Aeromotive Stealth
Alot like AEM pump but it uses a more (alcohol) friendly connector/plug

Same price range

They last 10,000 run hours (industry standard?)
They can flow for 700 Horsepower on a 5/16" Fuel line using gasoline

I put one in my car 2017 and put 40,000 miles on it since then at 600rwhp,
carry a cheapy $20 ebay fuel pump in the door panel as a backup and keep a brand new stealth at home in the cool A/C after a few years goes by

Yet another option are pumps from Deatschwerks. I'm running a DW200 for my S15 SR. Comes will installation kit, much like the Walbro ones.

Their website also has a few handy calculators to figure out fuel delivery needs.
