I WAS LOOKING ON EBAY AND SAW THIS,

WAS WONDERING IF IT WAS GOOD TO USE OR SHOULD I SHELL OUT THE EXTRA CASH FOR A WALBRO. DON'T WANT TO BE CHEAP BUT IF IT WILL WORK THE SAME RATHER SAVE SOME MONEY IF POSSIBLE.

PS. IF IN THE WRONG FORUM I APOLIGIZE. DIDN'T KNOW EXACTLY WHICH ONE TO POST IN.

They are not created equal...get the Walbro 255 lph high pressure and you'll be good up to 400 + rwhp.

About 5 years ago I bought a summit brand 255lph for my 88Turbo coupe for $79. Never put it in. Then I got the SC and started to have pressure problems. When I opened the box, it was a Walbro stamped pump. I still got the box with the old 1 in it and can get the part number. I don't know if they are still Walbro pumps of not.

In tank, I'm thinking with the new build I'm going to need an inline one with it. Going to a t67 stage 5 turbine.
