most people (including me) just do the typical inline walbro 255lph. is this not good enough for your application. search for rs4 pump too.

The answer to this questions depends entirely on the rest of your hardware and power output. The walbro should be fine for most setups (from GTRS-Gt3071r....possibly). But most who've chosen much larger turbos and built engines have gone with the Bosch 044. I run an 034 Billet intank 044 and couldn't be happier. I used to run an OEM RS4 pump (around 200lph, IIRC), but it didn't flow sufficiently for my setup. I believe its flow is rated below the walbro 255lph, and it's a good deal more expensive.

If you plan on running anything short of a GT30R, I think you'll be fine with a walbro pump

thanks! i plan on eventually running a 35r but who knows, that could change. right now im just building the motor up to support the big turbo, ill be uni stage 2 until i can afford to go GT haha.

ill check out all those options, thanks :D

yeah im still stage 3 gt28rs and im running stock pump and no issues, my buddy that was a 30r 2.0 build is just now getting a walbro, he was fine running stock rail and a FPR
