    Fuel Pump

    So my wife bought me a 255lph fuel pump from ebay, and it is slightly smaller than the original.. Hence now I get fuel cut on fast right hand turns..
    What's the best solution ?

    Replace it with a proper Walbro or Supra pump. However it shouldn't cause this no matter what pump unless it's shorter and doesn't sit down in the fuel enough.

    ^^^ this.

    i had a TREperformance pump from ebay for a while. it was a '255lph' pump that couldn't even keep up with 13T's, even when hot wired. grab a walbro and try to get it to sit in the stock position.


    stock fuel pump on left, TREperformance in the middle, Walbro on the right. the walbro is quite a bit shorter than the stock pump. its also a lot fatter than the 'ebay' pump. no matter what though they should all sit at the same height in your tank.
    the basic go fast bits...
    forged short block, Billet DR1000's, 680cc injectors, meth inj, FMIC, MAFT, Apexi Neo, hotwired 255lph fuel pump.

    It's shorter than stock and hence is sitting about 10mm higher.. I suppose I'll get the walbro with the install kit from 3sx... In the meanwhile I suppose I have to race on a full tank
