Anywhere between $150 and $190.

Fuel filter doesnt necessarily have to be done at same time.

will that replace the stock unit? lol i'm not super/turbo charging the car at all - so would something that decent actually do me any good? or would i be best off with just a basic stocker one?

Depends.... when you putting a supercharger on that beast? lol

In all honesty, if you've got nothing planned then go for the stocker... running a 255lph on an agressive cam/exhaust combo prolly do more harm than good - pumping s**t of fuel up to the engine and sending most of it back to the tank....

or you could buy a 190 litre/hour one of Shane, which was $150 including postage to me, and that should keep it happy, it's not that much pressure on the fuel lines. Although the stocker fuel pumps aren't that bad. They are good for a fair amount of power. Problem is aftermarket is cheaper than stocker. I found a place for a stocker aftermarket replacement (same flow as stocker) for $180, and another place with the bosch motosport one (stocker rate aswell) for like $220 or something.

The pumps from Shane (Walbro ones) fit straight in, direct replacement. They are smaller than the stockers, so they come with longer hoses, the clamps and a new sock. I have still yet to get one.


Cheers
