I would say no. Your not really adding anything that would warrant a pump upgrade.

It couldn't hurt for any future mods you have planned, though.

is it worth the expense of a potential blown engine for the small cost of a 255 pump? I cant believe that you would not want to follow the advise of the tuner.

+1 to not needed, yet. However for the minimal cost, its a nice margin of safety.

uhm beleive it. his mods don't come close to needing a fuel pump upgrade..

i ran 19psi on my stock pump, he's running stage 2 (16-17). he's fine.. especially with the STi pump

pump isnt really necessary until bigger injectors are necessary. no point pumping more fuel to injectors that still flow 440cc

The way I look at it, he may not need it, but if he trusts a tuner with his car and the tuner says get it then he should either A) Get the pump or B) get a different tuner since he isn't gonna listen to him anyway.

dude.. what is the point of the pump? there is NOTHING he is listing that is going to come close to exceeding his stock injectors.

and all tuners are not the same, ive met some that say "you need this, you need that" to rake in more money. its rare.. but it happens.

he does not need a bigger pump, period.

Thats what I mean, not all tuners are the same, just like not all cars are exactly the same. 255's are pretty cheap as it is, and I doubt the tuner is making much money on it anyway.

If a tuner suggests you should get something, and you trust him to tune your car for power, you should at least follow his wishes when it comes to supporting upgrades.

He could always find another tuner that says he doesnt need one. That way, if the motor goes for some unkown reason, his tuner can't say "Welp, shoulda listened and got that fuel pump"

I DO NOT THINK HE NEEDS ONE

Just pointing out an opinion of mine. When I used to tune Honda's for people, and I thought the customer needed something beforehand, I would not tune until he got it, regardless of where he purchased it. Especially if I thought he needed a pump.

having extra pump capacity can also help with quickly increasing fuel demands during transient conditions.

I dont know why you are getting stressed over a very small cost of a fuel pump. You will need it sooner or later - why not put it in now for a bit of piece of mind. At least then you know it will definitely be supplying the extra fuel needed.

thank you guys for all youre input, it has actually helped and wanted to say thanks. i understand that i dont actually need one but as far as volume of flow in extreme conditions i think i would rather be safe than sorrry. my friend fell through with the sti pump so i am going with the walbro.

thanks again and if someone that posted b4 this post is reading,



THANK YOU FOR THE HELP!!
