    Here's the stuff I found on the web regarding fuel pumps...

    Bottom line (as I interpret it based on my limited research)... Turbine style pumps work the best with PWM - I use a Bosch w/ no problems (very quiet as well). Some Walbros do not work as well with PWM (see thread)...

    So the fuel pump supplied with the unit is a paperweight? Wow. can the system be ordered without an expensive paperweight?

    Well, the basic kits don't come with the pump, filter, or regulator...

    Pumps that Last

    We've had excellent luck with the Bosch 044 and Walbro 255. The PP pump is good for intermittent use, like transferring fuel or kerosene, but is Noisy and not reliable enough to be mounted permanently under your ride.
    Today's most popular seems to be Aeromotive's 340 Stealth Fuel Pump, it's Super Quiet, Very RELIABLE, designed specifically for PWM and is usually a drop-in replacement.

    The PP pumps suck. I burned two of them up before I went with an intank unit. I used a factory pump off a 1992 TPI Camaro. Works like a charm, can be picked up anywhere, and usually carries a warranty.
