I bought the cheaper one and it came with a fuel pump.

Spectra fuel pump gets a lot of negative reviews. Nevertheless, in most cases the old wiring could be the real culprit.
Question: anybody having a bad experience with THE PUMP & HOUSING ASSEMBLY (not just the pump)?

In the picture you can see the original ACDelco pump I had to replace with Spectra. The burnt plastic housing is around negative contact. The new Spectra pump (or maybe the old wiring) is a suspect for recent no start condition after only 7 months 1,400 miles.

There’s nothing as permanent as a temporary solution.

As offered in your related thread, I never had issue with my Spectra replacement in my old FWB. I did however install a new harness, where the problem more likely lies as you say if reusing the original.
