Alright Guys, I'm getting ready to buy a new fuel pump for this year to replace the tired stock unit. Instead of just going out and buying one I thought maybe we could get a GP going on one. I had contacted Racetronix directly a few months ago, and they do not do GP, however their vendors/dealers/distributors do. It just so happens Combination Motorsports is one of them. I had contacted them a couple of weeks ago, and they said they'd get back with me on a price.

So I figured I'd see what kind of interest their was in buying the kit (link below) so maybe CM will see there's interested buyers and respond quicker (Yes I know they're prolly busy with stuff). I'm not sure how much we can get off the kit, but it sounded like CM would be interested in doing a GP.

So Who's interested.

Fuel Pump and Wiring Harness from Racetronix.

I made my own FP relay harness and recommend anyone who needs one BUY ONE like the Racetronix or I am sure Gary's is great.

From the Racetronix site:

"The Walbro pumps used in our B-LT1 kits are not standard issue Walbro pumps. We have had customers contact us after purchasing elsewhere to ask why the pumps will not fit properly in the factory fuel module."

Does this mean that THEIR Walbro pumps will not fit the factory sending unit or pumps bought elsewhere will not fit?

Just so everyone knows.
Gary and I did some voltage testing before and after at the pump.
It did not go up the amount Racetronix says.
How they are getting there numbers is with the key on for the stock reading and running for the second reading with the harness. Mine IIRC was within .5 volt or so. I know it can carry more amps with the volts going up and the resistance going down. But I was just doing an FYI if your stock harness is in good working order.
My Walbro pump I bought fit fine, I did not buy it form Racetronix though.

I'm interested in the kit (pump & harness) but only if we can get this moving pretty quickly - I need a pump in the next three weeks (at the latest).

From the Walbro website:

For several years, folks have been stuffing those pumps into the fuel modules of LT1-powered F-body and B-body cars. They weren't a direct fit, but if you trimmed a couple ribs out of the factory module, you could get the pump to fit.

In March 2004, Walbro introduced a version of the Gen-II pump with a new inlet. The pickup was offset to one side, like many of the GM vehicles on the road.

Oh yeah, I'm in depending on the price.

i just installed mine after seeing it on my shelf for about 4 months, you do have to do a minor trim up job on the factory pump housing, nothing to be afraid of, the wiring is excellent, simply cut out the top of the housing to fit the larger feed line and plug in, simple takes about 2 mins, they will fit, and the sending unit will work properly as it did before, unless you leave the wires unhooked of course, i found that fishing the wires through the passenger side frame rail was easy using a straightend wire cloths hanger, the wires are just long enough to work, other than that GREAT pump set up

So are you saying with both being tested running, the Walbro harness was .5 higher than stock?
