For Gods sake, dont buy a pump at Auto Zone, Kragen, etc. Those pumps are absolute crap!! Just get a name brand pump, like a Walbro.

I had no problems installing my Walbro 255 high pressure. Just needed to trim the big rubber vibration isolation sleeve the pump is mounted in a little to get the sock to fit.

I ordered the Walbro 255 unit. I put it on in my driveway. Get a friend to help you with the tank. I didn't get the FPR. The new pump really helped on my top end stutter. Pulls strong to 6000rpm now!
