It's not a big deal at all. Do not fret! Just use a copper tube cutter and cut like 3/4" off or whatever you see fit. You can still go back to stock since you are given a new rubber hose that is longer than the stock one..
i second this...i myself used a hack saw because thats all i had, but it still worked, ive got pics of it at home on my desktop, but im deployed right now and cant post em up or else i would so you can see how painlessly easy it was.

just get the URD pump and call it a day, why not support the guys that have been supporting us all these years when hardly anyone else would?

QA1's and BJ Flip up front, Drop leafs and beefed blocks out back, Celica Seats, decent sound system w/some 10's, W58 swap, 3.73 gears w/Detroit True Trac.

Yes, but if I find the same quality product for $30 to $40 cheaper, my money goes where I get more out of it.

I'm all about supporting a vender that caters to us.. But the price has to be right..

Now that I know URD price matches, I'll look into it..

Re: Best prices for genuine Walbro 255 pumps?

I have a 255 pump feeding my LS1, soon to upgrade to an Aeromotive A1000, but the 255 keeps up just fine WOT @ 6000rpms feeding 5.7 Liters. But with the new setup (Boost @ 15+psi + possibly a stroker 383) it will surely not cut it.

It also worked fine when I was pushing 23psi through my 2RZ with 550cc injectors, however they (the injectors) became static at high rpms/boost, so the fuel pressure was adequate, but the injectors were well beyond their effective range.

I think I paid around $130 for mine about 5+ years ago and still going strong, dont remember where I got it though. So I guess my entire post is pretty much irrelevant, lol.

BOOST BRIGADE I fabricate custom parts: HEIM STYLE STRUT RODS, FORWARD FACING INTAKE MANIFOLDS, and TRACTION BARS (5 LUG) contact me for more info @ www.Speed-freek.com or just PM me here THANKS!

That seems like a safe range, would anything over 85% be considered stressin the injectors at that point?

You can honestly run 100% or even higher but it's not great for the injectors as they get hot. They may prematurely fail.
