Default fuel pick up for walbro fuel pump

ive been told that the filter that comes with the walbro pumps dont pick up as well as the stock filters do....meaning you have to always have a quarter tank with the walbro in order for your car to run....


does anyone know what im talking about

I used the suction sock that came with my walmart 340 pump - smaller than stock, rectangular shaped.

I've run on the track with Hoosiers down to about 1 gallon left in the tank and have yet to experience fuel starvation.

I used the strainer that came with my walbro pump, and have had no problems at all. I don't fill up until my needle is below "E".

The Stock one just sits a little lower then the ones that come with the Walbro kits. I always use the stock one. I would suggest to buy a new one at the dealer for any fuel pump upgrade.
