    Fuel Pump

    Ok so my 2000 Trans Am pump is completely gone ( no pressure at all)
    I am wondering what is the best pump out there and what is the normal cost. I have look up the pumps at certain auto parts stores and they are going for around 400 bucks. Really are they that much?

    I think Walbro and Racetronix are both pretty good.

    Wish I'd known that back when I dropped my tank to do mine.. My replacement was about 3-4 times as pricey as those and I STILL had to splice it in...

    Wow so sorry but that should have not gone in here. I guess thats what happens when you are doing 2 things at once. I will delete my response.

    I ordered one from Speed Engineering over a week ago and still haven't got it. I am hoping it will be here today. I am going to do the access hole method but I still am unsure of where exactly the pump will be located. I have 2 pics but don't know which one is right for my 2000 trans am.

    Hopefully someone else will chime i, but I'm thinking the second pic is yours. Your best bet is to make a test cut about 3 inches from the edge. Just a small square that will allow to see the exact location of the assembly.

    The 2000 TA has a plastic (bottom one) fuel tank.. Not the first one, it shows a steel tank..

    You can also tell the first one is an early 4th gen because it lacks the child carseat safety teather loops in that area too.. Notice the bottom pic has the raised area for the loop mounting bolts on the left and the right side, and the top does not..
