Default Best inline intank fuel pump?

I am going to be installing my d1sc kit. and i was going to get a cheapo inline fuel pump. But after reading all the **** thats going on with fuel pressure dropping i would like to avoid this problem. Whats a real good pump i can get, something that wont mess up on me. Could you prvide links too. Hows the Bosch one at ls1speed?

i have a 2000 z28

thanks.

Put an in-tank pump in. An inline fuel pump will only pull as much fuel as the one in-tank. Save yourself the hassle, and do it right the first time. I always ran a Walbro 340m (255lph) in tank from Nasty Performance.

I hear the Walbros have a ton of problems. Is there a better brand? Also will i need to upgrade the size of my fuel lines?

I havent heard that and most people seem to have no issues with them. I think the main issue was modification of the pumps plastic bucket.

Larger fuel lines will depend on how much power you are making.

I never had an issue with my Walbro. Had it in the tank for over two years.
