question before i put on the pi heads

I have a feeling that the stock fuel pump will not be fesable or might not work with the pi heads and the pi intake i am getting ready to install.

My question is will this fuel pump work JEGS Performance Products 159041.

Or would some other fuel pump work well with it.

I have read majority of the posts but it didnt give much clarity or went over my head.

What i wanted to ask what is the most reliable fuel pump for the pi top swap on a npi engine.

I am sorry for the confusion but i wanted to ask and get feed back to halp me get the right one thank you for the replies

Stock pump is perfectly adequate for stock PI stuff

a properly working stock fuel pump is adequate. If it's on its last legs, it or any other weak fuel pump can leave you stranded. Your original fuel pump is now ~19yrs old if you haven't already replaced it before.

BTW, that jegs pump is likely just a re-branded Walbro 190lph pump that you can get cheaper

It is a new one in a way it was replaced when the relay broke on my dad it kept runing the pump when he shut the car off and caused the pump running.

It was replaced with the same type of pump from the dealer that i worked at when i was in virginia.
