I would search for a Walbro 225... it's just the pump, and if you ever do a lot of performance stuff, your pump will already be upgraded.

Mine lasted 14 years and my new AC Delco is running strong for 7 months and my fuel pressure guage is reading also confirming it. Im mechanic as well, and any good mechanic will tell to go OEM on major parts like this,, especially ones where there hard and take a long time to get to, not to mention aftermarket pump yull have to modify wire harness and just more work for nothing,, but don't take my word for it,just ask emey awarded car talk host Scotty kilmer. who also has a million views every day.

info needed is at 2:25

Ok Im also I tech I and I've run a Walboro for 4 years no issue. If the car is stock with no intention to modify it I would say stay stock but if one intends to do modifications down the road upgrade while you are at it.
