New fuel pump or BAP?

I'd like some opinions here and I'm curious if anybody runs an aftermarket fuel pump, what kind it is and what kind of power rating is it good for?

Also what kind of power can I expect out of the stock 2001 fuel pump with and without the BAP? Also how hard is it to tune with the BAP?

Thanks

(PS this is in the FI forum because only FI cars tend to have these problems and also my car has FI and I'm going to aim for about 300whp with all other required mods)

I would think you'd need a bap for that kind of power

Oh I know the stock pump alone won't handle that power goal, but I'm mostly just curious is anybody is running an aftermarket fuel pump or if they're just running stock pump with BAP or whatnot.

You should be able to get to 300 with the stock pump as long as it is the newer style

aren't the pumps in the zx3 different from the ones in the svt? if they are, just snatch one from an svt or order one and put that in there.

Tom,

I'm running 15psi (probably closer to 250whp) and my fuel pressure is dropping off to 32psi at WOT at the top end of my 3rd gear pull. This is with a full tank of gas and the recall pump installed.

IMO I'd go with the BAP to be on the safe side, but you can datalog and make your own conclusions. Better to do it right the first time then blow it up in the tuning process.

There's a recall on the early pumps but it's only honored if the pump fails. The recall is good for 10 years or 100,000 miles
