Best fuel pump to use??

Best fuel pump to use??

Postby kartracer [OP] » March 22nd 2015, 5:17am

What is the best fuel pump to install in the tank for a V8 conversion. I am questioning whether the stock 4.3 pump is up to the task.

The stock pump will work fine if using the same type of injection.

Volumn from a stock pump should be enough for 2 v6's.

I looked into this and emailed a tech from Delphi. The pump itself is used for multiple gm models, from express vans to trucks and some cars. The difference between the models is the "frame" the pump is housed in to take into account the difference in fuel tank configurations.
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.
