    As long as it has the little brass nipple on the top for the extra hose to fill the bucket, then it would work fine. The picture isn't clear enough to tell, it doesn't show the top of the pump.

    They are all Walbro pumps, Granatelli, Racetronix, etc... So I wouldn't worry about the brand so much.

    It is supposed to have the venturi feed hookup - so that appears to be correct.

    Yep, I read that. I guess I'm always the skeptical type if I can't touch and feel what I'm buying so I rely on pictures. Then again alot of places use generic pictures now too, so you can see why I don't have alot of faith in online purchases.
    Just the old man coming out in me. Too bad local speed shops that you can walk in are a dying trade, but I digress.

    I'm sure that would work out just fine Jeff if you are looking to save a few bucks over the Racetronix setup. Give it a shot and let us know how it is.

    When it comes to car parts, I'd rather spend more and know that I am getting what I need. Just a tad concerned about Racetronix I guess.

    I hear ya.

    If it helps, I've been running the Racetronix in my wifes car for almost a year now, works great. Had the stock pump up until then that was still working fine but after more than 10 years I figured it needed done as a preventative maintanance thing. Fuel pressure was a couple lbs below spec with slight fluctuation. Rock solid now with a hair over 58 psi.

    I have noticed mine dropping a bit more lately especially on warmer days. Upon shut off, the pressure falls off almost immediately.

    Sounds like it's getting tired. Good idea that you want to change it.

    WOW what an old thread. I replaced my f/p with a racetronics about 2 years ago. Car runs strong and never had an issue. Pressure holds for a while after i shut it off. Very pleased with it and easy install.
