Thanks for clarifying. This will save me install time by killing two birds with one stone. The roof needs to be replaced soon so I'll just have to acquire a higher flow pump before then. I'm running a J's FX70RS titanium single exit - it's surely louder than the Walbro 255

@flanders copy that (the wiring)

@Kyle thanks.

FYI: I got to hear a Walbro 255 in action thanks to Deckoz and Kyle. It didn't sound abnormally loud at all (during start-up or while running). This could mean that some people have gotten deceived by Chinese knock-offs which make a lot of noise.

My car is very quiet at idle, and my 255 is inaudible

clearly the legit Walbro 255 is quiet then. Sad that many have gotten ripped off by knock offs. That's the only way to explain their reviews centred on "its super loud and annoying"

Yeah the difference in sound between the descriptions and some of the youtube videos I've seen is crazy....I'd imagine most folks take to ebay without knowing better.

$22 is a dead giveaway that the pump is fake. A 255 shouldn't cost less than $90 new from what I've seen on reputable sites like SoS, etc. https://www.scienceofspeed.com/index...0-2000-09.html
